wheeler_000601_819507_07887884_2732  2014 La Quinta Arts Festival Spotlight: Chris WheelerAlways a traveler/explorer Chris Wheeler  spent 5 years in Tainan, Taiwan immersed in Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy – but more importantly he learned how to mount works on paper for scrolls and shoji screens. With this skill, the artist is able to stretch and manipulate paper in ways very few people can. Wheeler had found his art form and the discoveries he made in Tainan during those years made all of his future work possible.

Wheeler’s minimalistic approach, with a nod to traditional Chinese landscape and Japanese paper collage is sure to be a favorite for La Quinta Arts Festival patrons seeking contemporary, yet timeless works.
