Jian Cui : Tradition and Innovation

Jian Cui : Tradition and Innovation

March 2 – March 27, 2009

Jian Cui's work deals with the internal and external conflicts between an individual and the environment. He is interested in integrating classic two- and three-dimensional art with contemporary digital media, and sees so-called "new media" as a continuation of traditional media.

Jian Cui : Tradition and Innovation

His sculptures are seen as landmarks in China, and his drawings and paintings have been published in several books. His three-dimensional modelling and animation are widely used as instructional tools at schools across the country.

Cui is currently a lecturer in the art department at the State University of New York College at Oneonta. He earned a master's degree in new media from Penn State, a master's degree in computer art from Savannah College of Art and Design, and a bachelor's degree in sculpture from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China.

An opening reception will be held from 4 - 6 p.m. on Friday, March 6. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours. For more information, call (315) 445-4153.
