PEARL GALLERY OPENS DOORS TO DEBUT NEW ABSTRACT ARTWORK BY ALBERT YOWSHIEN KUO

Opening Reception | Friday Oct. 3rd, 2014. 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Pearl Gallery presents "Meridian," a solo exhibition by up-and-coming St. Louis artist Albert Yowshein Kuo. Kuo's latest body of work is refined, contemplative, and seductive and complements the adjoining Montessori environment.

Kuo's “Meridian” was chosen by a select panel of artists and Montessori educators. Kuo's work embodies key aspects of Pearl Gallery's mission "to educate the senses," most notably through Kuo's paint-handling skills and multiple-layered approach to image making. In "Meridian," each abstract piece is visually rich in texture and dialogue, with the layers of paint acting like different instruments in a symphony.

Kuo is especially pleased to be a part of the inaugural exhibition for Pearl Gallery and to reconnect with his roots in Montessori education, having attended a primary classroom from ages three to seven. He is honored to have his work recognized as art that can inform the senses, helping even the youngest of viewers to have a relationship with art. Says Kuo, "When we look carefully into the abstraction, we find our own personal meanings."
