Inspirations reflects a journey, which begun several centuries ago in France and continues in contemporary China, through Huang Dan‘s captivation with the Impressionist movement, inspired by the characteristic of the 19th century art moment of utilising small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition and emphasis on light to depict the subject matter at hand.

Paying homage to and expanding the key notions of impressionism, in these new works, the artist is stripping away extraneity and further reducing colour and form to focus on the essential – much akin to her key inspiration and master of impressionism, Claude Monet, who was part of the first major Impressionist exhibition of 1874 with his painting, Sunrise (1873). Huang’s latest works featured in this solo exhibition affirm her continuous explorations of this formal minimalist approach: “a process from much, to half, to less… to none,” reveals Huang Dan.

OPENING RECEPTION | Thursday 17 May, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
