Opera Gallery is thrilled to inaugurate the solo exhibition of Chinese artist, Zhuang Hong-Yi.
Known for his “color-changing” acrylic paintings, Zhuang masters the 3-dimensional world of flowers, drawing inspiration from nature’s most beautiful symbols, depicting roses, irises and tulip petals in his signature style. His works represent beauty, sophistication and a high level of perfection with a clear presence of Chinese influence represented in his use of colors, themes, shapes and choice of materials.
Born and raised in Sichuan, China and currently based in between his Rotterdam and Beijing studios, Zhuang has achieved international acclaim for his bold, sculptural paintings that have been shown in over 30 solo exhibitions and important group shows at major venues worldwide including the Found Museum, Beijing, China; the Groninger Museum, The Netherlands; and in Venice, Italy in conjunction with the 55th Venice Biennale of 2013.
The compositions in this series of works are powerful demonstration of a daring, yet surprising, mix of bright colors, allowing the wild outdoors to enter the gallery domain and shift the exhibition space into one mesmerising celebration of life.
The interactive experience offered to the viewer makes his work pure and fascinating, inviting us to play active part in the shifting process of the colors, experiencing dynamic results at each viewing point.
Inspired by Chinese folk art, its materials and how they are used, Zhuang works with rice paper providing him with an inexhaustible source of inspiration from which he gathers new ideas.
Sharing his time between east and west he often uses references to western movements such as impressionism forming a bridge between his birth place in china to his current life in the Netherland.
