Quality and beauty are the two features Andrew James looks out for when he sources for contemporary art. This was what he liked about Dorothy M. Yoon’s works when he first came upon them at a London art fair. Last Saturday’s opening reception for Dorothy’s first solo exhibition in China attracted a good number of people, presumably intrigued by the bizarre portraits of Asian females in all kinds of blonde wigs imaginable. While surreal images of pallid-faced beauties may not appeal to every art buyer’s taste, seasoned portrait collectors should figure if they like this series fast since the large group portraits come only in editions of 3.
Andrew James Art is located in a lovely old mansion within walking distance from both Nanjing Xi Lu and Shaanxi Nan Lu metro stations, which means no excuse for not stopping by to say hi to owners Andrew James and Wang Jing if you are dining at Julu Lu or shopping at Xinle Lu. They are really friendly so we’re sure they’ll be more than happy to answer your pressing art queries or tell you more about their upcoming exhibitions.
