Deena Gu Laties is a renowned international artist who melds aspects of western art with her Chinese training. Born in Shanghai, Deena Gu studied under famous Chinese painters Cheng Shifa and Tse Chen-Na. She continued her art studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts when she moved to the U.S. in the 1980s, fusing Chinese tradition with a western approach in terms of space, color and relationship.

From Shanghai to Naples will feature some of Deena Gu’s favorite early works, including The 87 Immortals: a thirty-foot handscroll that is a copy of a scroll from the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.). The exhibition will also display many of Deena Gu’s contemporary works, in which recognizable elements of land, sea, and sky appear to merge into diaphanous, atmospheric tableaus. Inspired by music and poetry, these introspective and contemplative compositions integrate the fluidity of Chinese painting with contemporary influences.
