EAST HAMPTON, NY – The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center will launch its contemporary art series on July 12, 2024 with the exhibition Little Images: Han Qin at the Pollock-Krasner House. In this series, select artists will feature in exhibitions which respond to the intimate nature of the Pollock-Krasner House setting.

“I see our artists as house guests,” says Director Matthew Ward, “For the run of their exhibition, this home becomes their home and the energies intermingle. As a venue, the Pollock-Krasner House presents a unique opportunity to explore themes like process and the artist’s personal life in a really interesting way.”

Han Qin’s exhibition Little Images explores the concept of “home” as both a refuge and a restraint. Drawings, prints, videos, and site-responsive installations illustrate the artist’s search for belonging: personally, artistically, and culturally. Taking inspiration from Lee Krasner’s small-scale paintings of the 1940s, produced in her bedroom studio, this exhibition asks how works created under spatial, emotional, and psychological stress might provide opportunities for beauty and self-discovery.

“I’m waiting for a day when my studio is not just a cave in the garage, but extends into every inch of living space” says Han, “The boundary between life and art shouldn’t exist. But at this stage, the ‘young family’ stage, it does. And so in this sense, my studio is a rejuvenating cave, where I can preserve and repair my soul when it is wearing thin.”

Han Qin is a visual artist, researcher, and art journalist based in Long Island, NY and Hangzhou, China.

A Chancellor Award adjunct professor within the art department of SUNY Stony Brook, Han was the recipient of the 2023 NYSCA award for Film, Media, and New Technology and is a founding member of the US Immigrant Artist Network and an Executive Committee member of the Chinese American Art Faculty Association.

A public reception will be held on July 13 at 6:00 pm at the Pollock-Krasner House.
