Origami Heaven showcases the extraordinary power and potential of contemporary origami with the work of artists, Madeline del Toro Cherney (USA), Thomas R. Crain (USA), George Hart (USA), Hiroshi Hayakawa (Japan), Qi Hu (China), Wonju Seo (Korea/USA), Fatima Shakil (Pakistan), Jule Waibel (Germany) and Kumi Yamashita (Japan). In the hands of nine international artists, what was once considered a Japanese children's craft has become a global art phenomenon. These visionary masters redefine the art of origami into breathtaking paintings, sophisticated furniture, wearable fashion, large-scale installations, and conceptual works that express an extraordinary range of bold statements and beautiful ideas.

Earth and Sky: Captured Movement: Works by Sook Jin Jo
Korean American artist Sook Jin Jo is a multidisciplinary artist who uses found materials such as wood from discarded furniture that resonates with its previous history. Her interconnected themes include—space and form, destruction and rebirth, the material and the spiritual as well as life and death. Inspired by a recent artist’s residency in Shanghai, Jo’s new series of black paintings explores the iconographies of clouds from traditional Chinese painting by contemplating the current air pollution and complexity of the metropolis.

Reality Override: Mixed Media Art by Singaporean Artist Ren Zi
In celebration of Singapore's 50th anniversary of Independence, the Charles B. Wang Center highlights the multitude of Singaporean cultural themes with the artist Ren Zi. Zi is a self-taught digital media artist who uses nature, his personal memories and Singapore’s transformation as inspiration for his art. Ren Zi investigates the malleability of memory and our internal reality by citing phenomenological psychology and Buddhist and Taoist philosophies. Ren Zi prints on a wide range of materials including acrylic, aluminum and bamboo paper.

With an Untainted Eye: Dale Cherney as Artist
Dale Cherney was an artist who carefully examined the everyday and familiar from a perspective that was anything but. Throughout her career she created bold original forms that explored the contrast of movement amid stillness. Cherney's photographs have been showcased at Cornell's Alice Cook House as well as its Johnson Museum of Art. Dale did fashion photography and promotional advertising work for the artist Bob Daniels, as well as created CD covers for several musical groups.
