“One of the things that’s the most important is that he works in a medium that many students engage in. Even non-art students take drawing classes,” Jennifer Salzman, LCC gallery director, said.

The pieces depicts various smiling faces amid self-portraits, Chinese to-go boxes and chopsticks. “Thematically, my work reflects a lifelong passion for Asian culture and cuisine – a sort of whimsical armature on which everything else is layered,” Sinclair wrote.

Salzman describes the show as humorous, thought-provoking, and quietly beautiful.

“Narratives of China” runs from Oct. 27 to Nov. 13 in the Main Gallery, Building 11. There is no charge for admission.
