Drew Tal - Porcelain Promises

Drew Tal – Porcelain Promises

Kudos to Drew Tal! His “Porcelain Promises” was acquired for the museum’s permanent photography collection. The NBM is one of the nation’s most dynamic art museums which exhibits its permanent collection and special exhibitions on widely diverse subjects in ways that combine the highest aesthetic standards with engaging and intellectually accessible presentations. Tal’s “Porcelain Promises” is inspired by the tradition of ancestral paintings, a Chinese commemorative tradition in which wealthy families depict their ancestors in fine paintings. This particular pair of portraits symbolizes the fragility of relationships between
lovers, generations, cultures and nations. Drew Tal’s work is included in private collections around the world as well as in the permanent collection of the Norton Museum in West Palm
Beach, Florida.
