Ben Brown Fine Arts is proud to present Yoan Capote: Territorial Waters, Yoan Capote’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong and third solo exhibition with the gallery. The gallery space will be transformed by an installation of Capote’s iconic ‘fishhook paintings’ from his renowned Isla series. These paintings present varying convergences of sea and sky, thousands of tiny fishhooks piercing the canvases to create rhythmic waters amidst thickly impastoed surfaces with bands of sky ranging from blood red to midnight blue. The exhibition will also include two suspended curved canvases that create a 360- degree immersive seascape.
