2021 年3月,我启动了李阐洛传承项目,就在我的父亲、具有开创性意义的亚裔美国移民艺术家李阐洛因新冠肺炎去世短短三个月后。李的故事是一个关于生存的故事,也是他作为艺术家、移民和教育家努力克服排斥的方式。

《排除/包含:李阐洛作品》收录的18件作品展示了他在三大洲的生活和艺术之旅,展示了他广泛的技能和艺术风格。即使在他被排斥在祖国之外,被迫逃离中国逃往香港的时候,他也用艺术通过绘画来表达自己。

作为一名政治难民,他需要从头开始自己的生活,当他最终来到美国时,他继续通过在纽约艺术学生联盟(Arts Students League)和Tyler School of Art的学习为自己开辟道路。在他的旅程的每一个关头,他都努力为自己创造一个地方,尽管他作为移民的生活中有许多障碍使他处于边缘地位。他把自己所面临的排斥转变为接纳和包容自己和他人的情境。






“肖像II”  25 x 18英寸,彩色石版画。 C1985


李的艺术虽然深受当时抽象表现主义运动的启发,但并不局限于一种流派或风格。他精通多种艺术形式,包括绘画、版画、雕塑和陶瓷。





“无题”  12.5 x 17.75英寸,蚀刻画。 C1972


“革命结束了”  17 x 23英寸,彩色石版画。C1988


“排除/包含”是一项展示人类决心、个人能动性和生存选择能力的工作。李总是努力让别人感到受欢迎。他有包容的精神,可能是因为他深知被排斥意味着什么。本次展览中的作品展示了他温暖、爱和欢迎的精神,并向我们展示了我们每个人都有能力创造一个我们和其他人能够生存和归属的地方。

The Work of Chen Lok Lee




EXCLUDED/INCLUSION

In March of 2021, I launched the Chen Lok Lee Legacy Project, just three short months after my father, seminal Asian American and immigrant artist Chen Lok Lee passed away from COVID-19. Lee’s story is one of survival and the ways that he struggled to overcome exclusion as an artist, immigrant, and educator.

The 18 pieces included in Ex cluded/Inclusion: The Work of Chen Lok Lee show the journey of his life and art on three continents and demonstrate the broad range of his skillset and artistic style. Even when he was excluded from his homeland and forced to flee China and escape to Hong Kong, he used art to express himself through his paintings.

Being a political refugee required him to start his life from scratch, and when he finally came to the United States, he continued to make way for himself through his studies at the Art Students League in New York and the Tyler School of Art. At every juncture in his journey, he made the effort to create a place for himself, even though many barriers in his life as an immigrant kept him in the margins. He turned the exclusion that he faced into situations where he created acceptance and inclusion of himself and others.





Portrait II. 25 x 18". Color lithograph. C1985.


While deeply inspired by the abstract expressionist movement of the times, Lee’s art was not limited to one genre or style. He was highly skilled in many art forms, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics.

The Revolution is Over. 17 x 23”. Color lithograph. C1988


Excluded/Inclusion is a demonstration of work that shows the human spirit of determination, personal agency, and the power of choice to survive. Lee always strived to make others feel welcomed. He had a spirit of inclusion, likely because he understood deeply what it meant to be excluded. The pieces in this show exhibit his spirit of warmth, love, and welcome and show us that we each have the power to create places where we and others can survive and belong.
