Period & Style
Born in New York, Palden Weinreb’s Tibetan heritage speaks through his strikingly spare works. Weinreb is inspired by sublimity: motion, space, and mystery. For Phantoms of Asia (on view at the Asian Art Museum from May 18 - September 2, 2012), Weinreb’s minimalist works (including paintings and light boxes) are meditations on existence and the universe. By reducing visual components to their simplest forms, Weinreb’s work explores how all things may be interconnected.
