Sze Tsung Leong: History Images

Shoshana Wayne Gallery
Los Angeles
Now through November 29

Sze Tsung Leong describes himself as a British/American and claims Mexico City as his birthplace, but in the latest edition of his History Images at Shoshana Wayne Gallery, he turns his attention toward the urbanization of modern China. These massive, detailed C-prints depict the cold rubble from which homogenous buildings sprout. Including minimal touches of color and only a few ant-like figures in his compositions, Leong enhances the sterility of the works, a reflection of the anonymity that consumes the setting. The characteristic starkness of these photographs gives viewers an unsettling look at urban sprawl in China.
