Horatio Hung-Yan Law: Every Treetop Deserves a Cloud

Feb. 12-March 15, 2024

The Alexander Gallery is pleased to present "Every Treetop Deserves a Cloud," an exhibition of photographs by Portland-based artist Horatio Law. This exhibition runs Feb. 12-March 15. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, Feb. 21, noon-1 p.m., and the artist will speak about his work at 1 p.m. 

In “Every Treetop Deserves a Cloud,” Law presents a selection of images from his Instagram project "Urban Studies," which documents his encounters with urban settings during his daily walks. Law uses ideas of childhood wonder and resilience to create artwork that suggest combinations of fantasy, wistful thinking and child logic to explore the chaos and uncertainties of life.

Law was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States at the age of 16. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York and Master of Fine Arts from Washington University in Missouri. His work has been supported by the Oregon Arts Commission, the Regional Arts and Culture Council and Oregon Community Foundation.

For further information about this exhibition, please contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu.
