Due to great responses, this exhibition will be extended to 23 December 2022.

Hong Kong art gallery Art Supermarket is pleased to present Exquisite Taste and Rich: The Artwork of Collaboration and Symbol, the solo exhibition by our new artist Michael Andrew Law (Hong Kong).

Contemporary is the generation of comments and reviews on the past, thus contemporary art is the best tool and platform. Michael Andrew Law (Born. Law Cheuk-Yui) is one of the most original and passionate artists in Hong Kong, with his vibrant and recognisable paintings with the juxtaposition of their visual elements of popular culture.

For Law, painting is a medium that works as a commentary on contemporary culture. Combining Pop Art, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, Law uses a humorous way to connect popular culture from low art to high art, commercial art to fine art, and past to present.

The paintings contain various cultural icons and symbolic value in historical art history — Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, David of Michelangelo, and Katsushika Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, as well as popular icons in contemporary art history such as Jeff Koons’s balloon dog, KAWS, Andy Warhol’s Campbell soup, Yayoi Kusama’s pumpkins and Banksy’s Girl with Balloon, along with Hollywood stars and celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Hedy Lamarr.

Law also incorporates everyday objects like advertising images of global brands such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, famous food, comics, cartoon characters such as Mr Monopoly, Scrooge McDuck, Snoopy and Mickey Mouse, as well as expenditure trends including luxury brands, and reinterpreted NFT by hand paint the famous NFT art, and Millennials’ culture such as taking selfies.

Law dedicates to explore the symbols of Exquisite Taste and the Rich in our society through these visual elements, by creating a dialogue over the definition of Exquisite Taste in nowadays culture, also the visual elements representing Exquisite Taste and high class, and income and value through modern expression, etc.

Whilst some might take the same symbols as meaningless, banal and superficial at the same instant. Besides paying homage to Lichtenstein’s Ben-Day dots, Law uses seemingly unrelated images using cinematic techniques like montage and superimposition to create a harmonious, semi-abstract and yet playful scenery. They are painted utilizing classical painting trained techniques and glazing techniques, and next to those are bright graffiti words. Law’s colourful dynamic line strokes created energy and motion effects for viewers, as well as used paint splatter to enrich images texture, presenting a certain level of art paint techniques.

Law studied classical painting theories and techniques with Italian American classical painter Dan Anderson. His paintings are expressions of contrasts, of opposites that attract whether in symbology or artistic language. The reinterpretation of familiar Western Pop Art iconography, which is rendered through the mastery of classical painting makes Law a powerful contemporary storyteller.

This October, Law’s work will be installed at Jao Tsung-I Academy Museum in Hong Kong. The exhibition is a series of paintings part of Law’s Art History Dialogues body of works.

We look forward to welcoming you at Art Supermarket.

當代之意為對過去的文化經過觀察消化之後作出評論,因此當代藝術是最好的評論工具和紀錄平
台。羅卓睿是香港最充滿熱情及原創性的藝術家之一。他的畫作充滿造型藝術的活力和辨識度,
並結合流行文化的視覺元素,現於Art Supermarket畫廊展出。
對於羅卓睿來說,繪畫是一種對當代文化進行評論的媒介。羅卓睿將波普藝術、超現實主義和抽
象表現主義相結合,以幽默的方式將流行文化從低級藝術到高級藝術、商業藝術到美術、從過去
到現在連繫在一起。
這些畫作包含了歷史藝術史上的各種文化偶像和象徵等無形價值——例如達芬奇的蒙娜麗莎以至
並重新詮釋NFT手繪著名的NFT藝術,以及自拍等千禧一代的文化。
羅卓睿通過這些視覺元素來探索社會中品味和富人的象徵,通過對當今文化中品味的定義,以及
代表品味和高級、收入和價值的視覺元素進行對話。
雖然有些人可能同時將相同的象徵符號視為無意義、平庸和膚淺。除了向 Lichtenstein 的 Ben-
Day 圓點致敬之外,羅卓睿還使用看似無關的圖像,使用蒙太奇和疊加等電影技術來營造和諧、
半抽象而又有趣的場景。
畫作是利用古典繪畫訓練技術和上光技術繪製的,旁邊是明亮的塗鴉文字。羅卓睿的多姿多彩的
動態線條筆觸為觀者創造了能量和動感效果,並利用油漆飛濺豐富了畫面質感,呈現出一定程度
的藝術繪畫技巧。
羅卓睿從意大利裔美國古典畫家丹·安德森學習古典繪畫理論和技巧。他的畫是對比的表達,無論
是在符號學還是藝術語言上都吸引著對立面。對熟悉的西方波普藝術肖像的重新詮釋,通過對古
典繪畫的掌握,使他成為一個出色的當代故事講述者。
今年十月,羅卓睿的作品將在饒宗頤文化博物館展覽。該展覽是羅卓睿的藝術史對話作品系列的
一系列繪畫作品展示。
