Boundary presents Starlight, a suite of recent paintings and drawings by James Kao.
“‘Natural’ yields to the un-built. Flora and fauna expand in marks of green. Forests, pastures, and in-between farmland ground compression of the built and un-built. Starlight opens up unearthed constructions. Spirits glow in the dark, and now this starlight shines on everything child-like, animal-like, and angelic.”
