    In our excitement for spring, the Multicultural Arts Center presents paintings by CJ Phu. An ephemeral display of bright greens, blues, and oranges, Phu’s acrylic paintings place you in a world of new beginnings - teeming with life. His handling of acrylic is almost evocative of printmaking due to the technique he employs. He chooses to avoid the use of brushes, creating an almost glass-like texture with the paint.
    In his words, “I discovered that for me it was much more enjoyable to scratch and sculpt the surfaces of the paintings.” In his work, multiple layers both hide and reveal various features, like a game of hide and seek. The paintings in “Geometry of Nature” signify a much anticipated transition for us, into the season of life, and allow us to feel embraced by the soul of spring.
