LU MEI

Born in Henan China in 1969, Lu Mei graduated from the Fine Arts Academy at the Central Academy of Arts and Design in 1996. She currently lives in New York City and divided her time between her studios in New York and Beijing. Lu Mei also serves as a Guest Professor at the prestigious Zhoukou Normal University of Academy of Fine Arts in China.

 

Lu Mei is a leading emerging artist whose paintings have been exhibited in China, the U.S. and internationally. In the past 12 months alone, Lu Mei has had 2 solo shows in Beijing [Cohim gallery and Yiyou Culture gallery ], a 2-Person Show [Lewisham Arthouse in London

] and a Group Show in Greece [The Art Contemporary Museum of Crete]. In New York, Lu Mei’s upcoming solo show at Crossing Art of the Chelsea gallery in NY on December 2018, and Being 3 Gallery in Beijing. Scheduled her solo exhibit on July-August 2019.

 

Lu Mei’s new paintings comes from her intensive study of Chinese culture and her personal life experience. In her “Pyramid” series, Lu Mei repeats and overlays squares to form the “Pyramid” structure of our sub-consciousness.“Reaching to the sky” illustrates the pathway that connects humans with the universe. "Pyramid” pushes through the earth’s gravity in the pursuit of dreams, spirits and the unknown. It is a metaphorical ladder ultimately returning to the source. According to Lu Mei: Life is a Journey, to return back home.

 

Lu Mei’s works are in the collection of museums and private collectors in China, the U.S. and Europe.

吕美

 

 

美籍华裔艺术家,1969年出⽣于中国河南,2000年移民美国芝加哥,2012年移居纽约。现定居于纽约和北京。美国北美艺术家协会会员,周⼜师范学院美术学院客座教授。

吕美是⼀位杰出的新兴艺术家,他的画已经在中国、美国和国际上展出。仅在过去的12个⽉

⾥,吕美在北京举办了两场个⼈展(中赫画廊和易佑⽂化画廊),双⼈展(伦敦Lewisham艺术馆)和希腊群展(克⾥特当代艺术博物馆)。在纽约,吕美即将于2018年12⽉在纽约的切尔西画廊Crossing Art 举办个展,和2019年7⽉在北京的“在3画廊”举办个⼈画展“彼岸”。

吕美的新作来⾃她对中国⽂化的深⼊研究和个⼈的⽣活经历。在她的“塔”系列中,吕美重复并叠加正⽅形,形成潜意识的“塔”结构。这种“向天性”是⼈类和宇宙相连的道路。“⾦字塔”穿越地球的引⼒,是对梦想、精神和未知的追求,这是最终回到精神家园的隐喻阶梯。吕美说:⼈

⽣就是⼀场回家的旅⾏。

吕美的作品曾在中国,美国和欧洲的画廊及美术馆展出,被中国、美国和欧洲的博物馆和私⼈收藏。
