He’s not a magician, but artist Shen Wei is very good at disappearing — losing himself as he creates, conjuring ethereal lands and reimagining the human body. His work is now on view at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston through June 20. Special correspondent Jared Bowen of PBS station "GBH Boston" has the story for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
