In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Arts Brookfield has commissioned an original work of art by artist Amy Kao for the 230 Vesey Shops at Brookfield Place New York. Radiance explores the traditional Chinese craft of paper cut-outs to create a landscape of imagination, where viewers are invited to traverse through a succession of swelling contours and recessions. Each of the densely elaborate columns depicts a distinct landscape of foliage motifs, together with iconic roosters in celebration of this year’s zodiac animal.



Amy Kao’s work speaks to the perceptual experience and experiences of nature as markers of history and culture. Her work has been exhibited in venues such as MoMA PS1, Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York Public Library, and Apexart, NY. Most recently, Kao collaborated with designer Jil Sander on a fashion collection. Solo exhibitions include Michael Steinberg Fine Art, NY and Venetia Kapernekas Gallery, NY.  Kao is a recipient of residency fellowships at Yaddo, NY; MacDowell Colony, NH; Art Omi, NY and the Lower East Side Printshop, NY. Born in Taiwan, Kao currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
