What is a Triptych? New Art at the Milpitas Library

Hung-Tsu Chen Abstract painting

A Triptych is a work of art that is divided into three pieces.  Thanks to local artist Hung-Tsu Chen, lucky Milpitas Library visitors can see vivid examples of this art hanging in the library's upstairs gallery through the month of May. 

Chen uses multiple layers of delicate color that follow abstract shapes which connect over the three separate canvasses, unifying the parts of three into a single work.  The result is a wave of colors and shapes that flow in a way that pleases the eye.

Hung Tsu Chen's website gives more information about her work.
