Chinese artist Jiu Jianhua has earned a name for himself with his strange, polychrome ceramic works and porcelain cityscapes.  His latest exhibit, being displayed at the Galeria Continua in San Gimignano, Italy, is certainly not a departure from his past examples of eccentricity.  His Dream in Conflict exhibition features a large, two-section model of the Shanghai skyline constructed solely with poker chips and dice.  Vibrant in both color and meaning, Dream in Conflict is likely to carry Jiu Jianhua’s name to a much more common standing in the art world.
