As creator of the wildly popular animated children’s show “Ni Hao, Kai-Lan,” Karen Chau has been delighting viewers (and their parents) with her enchanting artwork and childhood memories for three years. What many people don’t know is that Karen has been creating personal artwork, under her Chinese name Kai-lan Chau, for much longer. These works, executed with Chau’s signature super-flat, colorful style, are edgier, revealing a slightly twisted sense of humor. Yet even as a panda imagines bacon while chatting with a pig and bats float overhead tethered in a kind of bat prison, the overall energy and message of Chau’s work remains infectiously upbeat.
For Inner Dialogue, Karen will produce twenty limited edition prints on paper, three extremely limited edition canvas prints and two limited edition fiberglass sculptures. All proceeds from the sales of one of the print editions will be split between two well deserving charities – Families with Children from China (fwcc.org) and City Critters Rescue (citycritters.org).
Running concurrently with Inner Dialogue, in the project room, is Stuffed Monkeys & Freeze Dried Fauna, new oil paintings and mixed media works on paper by Julia Marchand.
Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side. Hours are Wednesday – Sunday, noon – 6, and by appointment.
