In Construction and Contemplation, Li Gang, using the traditions of Chinese ink painting along with a palimpsest style of mark making with acrylic, venerates and builds on the cultural history of China and its writing system. Expressing her own take on painting, time and change, Israeli born Noa Charuvi creates images of construction sites to demonstrate how architecture influences and cements the historical texture of specific places.
