Leo Gallery is proud to present Supernova, the debut Hong Kong solo exhibition of emerging Chinese artist, Kai Chen. Featuring a new series of abstract paintings.

To Chen, the expression of abstract art is inseparable from Romanticism. In Supernova, everything is transformed into stardust, wandering between the “moonlight and snow”, converging with clear and chaotic traces, veiling the countless lights and annihilation of stars after they explode. The visual acceptance of colors triggers a poetic sense which similar to dreams, you can easily associate the symbolic images with the milky way, the shade of summer and a garden full of flowers. In “Day/Night” and “Untitled (Supernova I, II)” series, Chen uses classic liner brushes, stippling techniques and colour dots to condense a state of infinite and energy:

“For me, the power of stippling and brushstrokes lies in its tension. The similar brushstrokes vary greatly due to the strength of the hands, the shape, size, and texture of the dots. The countless bright colour dots are the same, but yet they are different, as they condense into a strong visual tension onto the dark canvas.” – Kai Chen
