Sin Sin Fine Art proudly presents a solo exhibition of Louis CANE, entitled “LOUIS CANE – Window of The Light”, in collaboration with Gallery Yamaki Fine Art (Japan) to introduce his works in Hong Kong for the first time.
Louis CANE (1943-, Born in Beaulieu-Sur-Mer, France) has been a leading figure in bringing a revolution in French contemporary art since joining the artistic movement “Support/Surface” movement that flourished in France in the late 1960s. Based on his theory; “What we generally see when we see a picture is no more than the surface of it, which is only the substance of oil on linen cloth”, he has produced works with canvases cut out so as to expose their structures and backsides.
Since 1969, Louis Cane has been widely exhibited all over the world – France, Germany, Italy, USA, Japan and more. In 1994, Musée de l’Orangerie, Jardin des Tuileries, Paris held a solo exhibition of Louis Cane. He also has an extensive public collections by MOMA in New York, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Louisiana Museum in Denmark, Art Institute in Philadelphia, Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Musee d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne in France.
This exhibition will mainly feature Louis Cane’s recent works in which only parts of the wire support were colored with resin, hence the background wall and the support’s frame can be seen through. As he mentions “the way to discover colors is hidden in the air”, his latest works are more color-conscious with supports like ‘window’, as if from a distance the delicate colors through light appear to be floating in the air.
