Adam Fung art exhibit opens at The Link Art Gallery

Exhibit on display through October 1

Kent State University at Trumbull’s Link Art Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Adam Fung that will be on display through October 1, 2015.  

Fung’s recent solo and group exhibitions include Observatory (Packer Schopf Gallery, Chicago), Mountains to Sea (Art Science Gallery, Austin, Texas), Water (Core Art Space, Denver), Art in the Metroplex (Fort Worth, Texas) and the Hunting Prize Finalist Exhibition (Houston). 

In his current body of work, Fung continues his exploration of how painting can be used to contemplate how we come to understand the universe. It is a direct response to a recent research trip in which Fung visited the McDonald Observatory and National Solar Observatory, viewing the darkest night skies in North America in Big Bend National Park and toured the Spaceport America and the Very Large Array.  

The resulting work is process oriented to mirror metaphorically the process of thought surrounding the search for, discovery, and the limits of understanding. Working in layers, and seeking emergent patterns that simultaneous reveal and conceal the layers that have come before, he asks, “Can we touch the surface of it all? Do we see though it? What lies beyond? And, what is the shape of this thing?”

Fung, an assistant professor of art at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Notre Dame, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western Washington University.

Fung’s work can be viewed at www.adamfung.com.

The Link Art Gallery is open Monday-Thursday from 3-7 p.m. and is located in the Classroom Building on the campus of Kent State Trumbull.
