This Autumn, Artspace K proudly presents “Realism Art • Food”, a group exhibition of 6 outstanding artists from November 3, 2022 to January 29, 2023. We are delighted to have invited Liang Chin-Chia, Ouyang Guo-Jian, Huang Kuen-Po, Li Cheng-Guei, Wu Chun Yin Aries and Steven Tang, presenting 37 realistic paintings on our daily foods and utensils.
Ms. K.C. Chen, Chairman of Artspace K said, “Food is our paramount necessity”. It is not only an integral part of our lives, but for centuries, food is also a popular motif in artistic creations. Tracing back to the Roman period, wheat and grapes played a role in ancient Roman art for being not merely the main source of food, but also a vital element of religion, mythology and banquets. In the renowned Renaissance painting “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci, the meticulously depicted meal is a common theme in still-life paintings. For pop art which incorporates popular cultural elements, Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Can series once again proves that edibles have long integrated into various art forms.
The curator of “Realism Art • Food” exhibition, Lee Yu-Han noted: Revolving around our daily foods and utensils, the 44 artworks presented at this exhibition reflect the warmth and nostalgia unique to food through masterful techniques and nuanced observations. We hope visitors can savour the moment of these paintings, including the beauty of realism art and the “taste” of food. The artists have applied different painting mediums, including oil paint, marker pen and coloured pencil for their creations on canvas and paper. While observing the variety in the brushstrokes and textures, visitors can taste their feelings for life as well as take a glimpse of their inner world, reflecting and exploring the beauty of everyday life.
