[SATELLITE EVENT] PERCY LAM

PercyL 2996PARC-2_600x657

Jelly Beans-S  SATELLITE

PERCY LAM at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
April 7 – June 24, 2016
Public Reception: Thursday, April 7, 2016 / 6-8pm

Referring to his recent works Percy Lam states, “I was born and raised in Hong Kong. When I immigrated to the United States and settled in Honolulu I became fascinated with PEZ candy dispensers. I collected them and began using them as a way to anchor myself in my new surroundings. I found this material interesting because its form reminded me of the buildings of Hong Kong. I tried to fit into the new culture, but felt that I was outside of it. In order to make sense of this, I first sewed the PEZ wrappers together to create a canvas for a more traditional Chinese landscape. I have continued to use PEZ candies and wrappers to create metaphors for my life-changing experience of immigrating to a foreign land.” Lam received his BFA degree from the Department of Art + Art History, UHM, in 2015.

Lam’s recent group exhibitions include Hybrid Forms & Interdisciplinary Practice, 2015, in Chicago, and Fiber Hawaii, 2014. He was the recipient of the Dianne Sullivan Memorial Scholarship, 2014, from the Department of Art + Art History.

Guitarist Aaron Cardenas will provide music at the opening reception. Cardenas received his Bachelor of Music degree from the Department of Music, UHM, 2015, and will attend graduate school this fall. He has studied with guitar virtuosos Benjamin Verdery, Frederic Hand, Carlos Barbosa Lima, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo’s Douglas Lora and João Luiz. The recipient of a full scholarship in 2013, Cardenas attended a ten day master class with Benjamin Verdery, professor at Yale University, and was one of a few selected to perform a solo recital. He has been teaching and performing professionally since he was sixteen
