“We drive into the future using only our rearview mirror” so said noted sociologist Mc Luhan. It is only the artist who lives in
the present, manipulating modalities into previously unpredicted sensibilities, encountering the phenomenology of now; the creative mind sounds out a higher reality. Simply put the artist is alive.

The artist Ginger Lai, a diminutive yet deceptively creative dynamo, encounters this world like a child at play, wide eyed and naïve. She perceives existence as it is, suspending judgment for an unfiltered view. Ginger dispenses with well-worn artistic clichés, creating an inner reality that resonates a higher ethereal vision.

The Ginger Lai approach is simple; the bare canvas is to be explored through color, form and texture, depicting dynamically her inner sub-conscious. Like a Rorschach ink blot on steroids, her energy paintings disregard representational line, form and predisposed symbols, spurring the viewer to experience the painting with no preconceived notions and create a personal meaning ------ which is tantamount to Ginger’s creative process. In effect, her art forces the audience to become the artist, positing their own existential content to each work and thusly turning the stale roles of artist and viewer topsy-turvy.

The art of Ginger Lai refutes the archaic psychological and artistic symbols that litter our cultural graveyards. It is grounded “In the now”. She paints what she feels, bravely outing her subconscious for all to see and participate in an act of shared creation.
