Wen-hao Tien is an artist and educator living in Cambridge, MA. Her studio practice is rooted in language and cross-cultural observations. She notices what many do not see, and her multi-disciplinary work brings out narratives of our changing societies, and life-in-flux. She was recently featured on NPR’s The World radio program for her project, Teach Me Your Song where she invited the public to teach her a song at her solo show in Boston’s Pao Arts Center. The result is a collection of recordings that portrays the plurality of our society. Her exhibition at Gaslight Gallery showcases her investigation of a wide range of mundane materials, and how she interprets line, sculpture and painting in the inescapable beauty of nature. She says, “Although my artistic process is about honing and evolving my thoughts and emotional senses, I am more interested in how you see it. How does a particular piece speak to you? What will you say back?”
This is Wen-hao’s first Maryland solo, and an exciting collaboration with Adriel Luis.
