Pure Light

by Udo Nöger

Date: 5 October, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Karin Weber Gallery is excited to present ‘Pure Light’ by Udo Nöger’, a selection of new and recent works, with a previously unseen range of works on paper. This artist stands out for his uncompromising, single-minded focus on a single subject: light. Colour is markedly absent from his abstract explorations; instead, a limited palette of greys and whites is employed in the making of Nögers masterful works that appear to glow from within. At first glance Nögers’ works on canvas appear as paintings, a closer look reveals their elaborate construction. Multiple canvases are stacked on top of each other, every layer selectively painted and treated with paraffin oil to create a translucent, ethereal effect. Each work lets light travel through the canvas layers to draw our eye to wh... Read more

Teresita Fernández: Rise and Fall

by Teresita Fernández

Date: 26 October, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hong Kong, October 3, 2017—Lehmann Maupin is pleased to present Rise and Fall, an immersive installation of recent works by Teresita Fernández. For the artist’s second Hong Kong exhibition, Fernández will debut 24 solid graphite and pencil landscapes as an immersive installation. The relief panels, depicting the rise and fall of the tide and shifting horizon lines, are densely arranged on graphite-colored walls where Fernandez has extended the blue-hued images by drawing directly on the wall surface. The result is a site-specific installation with thousands of blue horizon lines that rise and fall, surrounding the viewer. The title of the show, Rise and Fall, is also a reference to how this term is used to describe the rhythm and swinging pendulum of power and social movements throug... Read more

Then is Now

by Emily Allchurch

Date: 31 October, 2017 | 6:00 am - 9:00 pm
Karin Weber Gallery is delighted to welcome new UK-based artist Emily Allchurch to its roster, and to announce an exciting two-stage collaboration, which will run until March 2018. Allchurch uses photography and digital collage to reconstruct Old Master works in her creation of contemporary narratives. Her starting point is an intensive encounter with a city or place, to absorb an impression and gather an extensive image library. From this resource, hundreds of photographs are selected and meticulously spliced together to create a seamless, new fictional space. Each artwork represents this journey, compressed into a single scene. The resulting photographic collages resonate with place, history and culture. They explore the passage of time and changes to a landscape, imbuing contemporary... Read more
