Opera Gallery and the artist are pleased to invite all viewers to join us at the opening of Feng Xiao-Min’s first ever solo exhibition in Hong Kong. From 18 January until 28 February 2019, the French-Chinese contemporary abstract artist will show case his world through a range of rivetingabstract landscape works, in a colourful and meditative collection named Inspired Resonance.
The exhibition features 25 of Feng’s most recent large scale paintings, with three never-before-seen pieces created specifically for exhibition in Opera Gallery Hong Kong. With his roots based in China and having spent over 30 years residing in France, the exhibition celebrates the fusion of Chinese and French culture, depicting the artist’s world from dusk to dawn.
From ethereal to earthly and emptiness depiction to full bodied precision, the abstract master creates a spectrum of atmospheres through his works of art. The subject does not necessarily pursue the accuracy of forms, with no specific location to inspire Feng; instead he focuses on the powerful visual effect produced by the colours and spatial configuration of the whole picture.
Movig to France in 1988, Feng met Zao Wou-Ki in Paris. Along with key Chinese artist Chu Teh-Chun, the three forged a close bond. As important and historical symbols in the international art scene, each of the three artists left China to settle in the French capital of art. Creatively blending the spiritual landscapes of the East, and the romantic colours of the West in their paintings, the artists have expanded the language of painting, to show the Western world the creativity and excellence of Chinese artists and their origins.
Frequently exhibiting at international art fairs and biennales around the world, he was commissioned to produce work for the 2017 BRICS Summit, where the Chinese government play a vital role in talks for emerging national economies.Today, his artworks are displayed in various private and public collections, including galleries, museums and foundations, both in his home country of France and around the globe.
