On Gold Mountain
Gregg Chadwick 关于金山 (On Gold Mountain) 68"x68" oil on linen 2006
For the immigrant Chinese community, San Francisco was known as Gum Saan - "Gold Mountain" - a place of freedom and prosperity. This new painting, is in part a visual poem on new Chinese immigrants coming to America. Many of these new immigrants are young girls adopted from China into American families. What will their stories be?
