‘The Trickster,’ work by Thomas Chung until Oct. 27th in the ARC Gallery

“The Trickster” by Thomas Chung

The painting “The Trickster” deals in the cross-cultural archetype of the deviant. From the raven to Prometheus: the motif of the trickster figure occurs in nearly all cultures around the globe. Infusing a sense of play into the serious nature of existence and creation, the trickster figure is oftentimes he who creates innovation and progress through rule breaking.

Artist Thomas Chung was born in New Jersey and grew up in Hong Kong and New York City. He received his B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute and his M.F.A. from Yale University. Presently, Chung has joined the Fine Arts faculty at UAA while conducting research of Native American culture and mythology.

“The Trickster” will be on display through Oct. 27. The ARC Gallery is open during library hours.

Artist Thomas Chung will discuss art, expression and American life in a free talk at the UAA Campus Bookstore on Wednesday, Sept. 27, from 5 to 7 p.m.
