The Pitch Project is pleased to present Cutting Edges, a two-person exhibition featuring Chicago-based artist Aimée Beaubien and Boston-based artist Fred H.C. Liang. Beaubien and Liang transform the two dimensional surface of photography and drawing into delicate sculptural interventions.
Aimée Beaubien’s photographic sculptures are playfully complex. The act of collage gives amusement to the forms interweaving in space. By abstracting representational photographs Beaubien uses a clearly defined rhetoric of logic and illogic in her creative process. The self-referential objects command an atmosphere exclusive of itself.
Fred H.C. Liang’s aerial sculptures lend terrestrial beauty to a space. Adopting Jian Zhi paper-cut techniques, Liang’s work pulls from tradition in attempt to convey the ineffable qualities of abstraction. The meditative process Liang embraces is conveyed through the elemental paper forms that feel conscious.
Together, Beaubien and Liang’s work create a fantastical environment within the walls of The Pitch Project.
Aimée Beaubien has engaged in more than 40 exhibitions national and international, venues include: TWIN KITTENS, Atlanta, GA; UCRC Museum of Photography, Riverside, CA; Marvelli Gallery, New York, NY; Castello di S. Severa, Italy; Oqbo Galerie, Berlin, Germany. Her work has been reviewed in publications such as Art in America, Art on Paper, and Art Papers. Beaubien is Assistant Professor of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
