“The Invisible Thread” – Galerie Ora-Ora at Ink Asia 2017

Date: 15 December, 2017 | 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
At Ink Asia 2017, Galerie Ora-Ora initiates a synesthesia of sculpture and ink. Seeing one, we feel the other. We invite you to experience the meditative balance of Will Clift’s sculptures, an answering call to the boldness of the brush. Join us at Booth C-10 as our artists Will Clift, Huang Dan, Peng Jian, Nina Pryde and Zhang Yanzi weave the invisible thread of geometric abstraction. Navigating a path through today’s complex and interwoven realities, they bring renewed insight into our humanity and ink’s unceasing ability to represent, morph, combine and innovate.   Private Preview: Thursday, 14 December, 2017 from 4:00-6:00PM Vernissage: Thursday, 14 December, 2017 from 6:00-9:00PM   General Opening Hours: Friday, 15 December, 2017 from 11:00AM-7:00PM ...

Edouard Malingue Gallery, Hong Kong

Choruses

Date: 7 December, 2017 | 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
Weaving notions of repetition and musicality, ‘Choruses’ is a group exhibition presented by Silverlens, Manila at Edouard Malingue Gallery, Hong Kong as part of the two galleries’ ongoing collaborative exchange. Bringing together the work of Genevieve Chua (b. 1984, Singapore), Martha Atienza (b. 1981, Philippines), Maria Taniguchi (b. 1981, Philippines) and João Vasco Paiva (b. 1979, Portugal), the show moves between sculpture, video, painting and mixed media works, pointing to a melodic sense of cyclicality, both literally and more widely as an expression of how things develop and evolve. Genevieve Chua creates mixed media works on an unfurling narrative informed by natural history and linguistics. Primarily working with abstraction, Chua’s pieces are contingent realities prese...

Wish You Were Here! - Ink and colour paintings by Hu Yongkai

by Hu Yongkai

Date: 30 November, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Yan Gallery is very pleased to present an exhibition of ink and colour paintings by Shanghai artist, Hu Yongkai entitled ‘Wish You Were Here!’. Hu Yongkai came to prominence in the mid-1980s with his ‘heavy colour’ works on paper and gained the reputation as an artist skilled at brushwork and use of colour. He often depicts women in his works, either flirtatious and sensuous or demure and charming, usually within a classical Chinese setting with antique Chinese furniture, cheongsam dresses and traditional accessories.  His stylized faces are instantly recognizable, earning him the nickname of the ‘Chinese Modigliani’. As well as working in heavy colour, Hu also paints in Chinese ink and colour, works which are more spontaneous and free in style.  Since the 1990s we have... Read more
