Jon Tsoi Solo Exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary



Tally Beck ContemporaryJon Tsoi: Father of Blindfold Art Medicine

Tally Beck Contemporary will present the first solo gallery exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary for Chinese painter Jon Tsoi. Jon Tsoi’s solo exhibition, Father of Blindfold Art Medicine, will open, with a special performance by the artist, on Wednesday, June 11 and run through July 27, 2014.

Although this exhibition will be Tsoi’s first solo exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary, Father of Blindfold Art Medicine will be his sixteenth solo exhibition in New York City. The show will feature approximately 16 acrylic and mixed media works on canvas. Tsoi’s work explores the use of art as holistic medicine to restore balance of body, mind, and spirit in the viewer. His work fuses Chinese medicine practices and Taoist philosophy to restore the balance of yin and yang through “Universal Life Energy.” Tsoi’s inquisitive nature prompted him to make the connection between meditation, spirituality, and healing with closed eyes. Because of this connection, Tsoi began making works while blindfolded and creates his pieces without the use of sight. He describes the creation of art as an internal journey that results in mystery. During his blindfolded performances, Tsoi relies on guidance from the energy of the universe to create channels for movement through cuts made in the canvas with a knife. This energy force also guides the color palettes to restore yin and yang through balance of a mental, physical, or spiritual condition.

Jon Tsoi currently lives in Connecticut and has exhibited work there as well as in New York City, New Jersey, and Florida. Tsoi is originally from China and studied in Sichuan. After moving to the United States in 1979, he attended classes at Montclair State University, and the Art Students’ League of New York in the early 1980s. As a certified acupuncturist, Tsoi consciously makes connections between art making and viewing with Chinese medicine practices and Taoist Philosophy.
Father of Blindfold Art Medicine will open at Tally Beck Contemporary, 42 Rivington Street, New York, on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, with an opening reception from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. featuring a special performance by the artist and cocktails by Mizu Shochu 美鶴乃舞 and Tiger Beer. The reception will begin at 6 p.m., and the performance will begin at 7:30 pm.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Tally Beck Contemporary will also present a series of lectures and other educational programming. All special events will feature cocktails by Mizu Shochu 美鶴乃舞 and Tiger Beer. Please check our website to stay updated with our event schedule.

3 Days Left Before Art F City Roast

02/14/14



There are only three days left before we launch the Art F City Art World Roast Auction and Awards, otherwise known as The Art F City Roast, otherwise known
as the AFCAWRAaA. The time to get your tickets is now. The time to start seriously perusing the Paddle8 site was yesterday. The bids are piling up!

We can't wait to hang out with you all at Postmasters this Monday, February 17th, if
for no other reason than we announce the award winners of our gilded butt plugs. This week, we've asked readers to weigh in on who they think should win these awards, and the results are pouring in. Can any artist defeat Richard Serra's strong hold on the Chris Christie Award for Most Significant Artist? Bushwick and Sunset park are running neck in neck the gentrification award category, which is measured
in high volume sales of organ meat and forced artist migration rates. And the power eyebrow category is in a near dead heat with Mary Boone holding only a slight lead over Glenn Lowry and Peter Brant.  Only you can break this tie, but you've got to act now. The polls close at midnight tonight, so make your voice heard and vote

Voting is just one way to prepare for the evening's festivities. I'm going to start by getting my nails done and finding a suitable dress. Art proms are fancy so we recommend ladies and gents prepare accordingly. We also recommend that anyone who is considering bidding, sign up for a Paddle8 account if they have not already done so. The only way to bid on silent auction items is through the Paddle8 website, so for those of you who are bidding in person at the auction having an account makes one less thing to worry about.

And that's great, because boy do we ever have a lot of great art. I'm talking choice work from established artists like Marilyn MinterNayland Blake and Deborah Kass to rising stars like Sara CwynarMatthew Leifheit and Aaron Williams.

So get your tickets and comb through the Paddle8 site. Then place your votes in our awards and clap your hands for a job well done.

See you Monday!
