Recap: 重看 04/15/2010
 
Following our previous exhibition presenting numbers of artists in Showcase 2010.
We are preparing our space for one week only showcase 'Recap' opening this Saturday.
Recap will revisit our collections of Contemporary Chinese painting  which are still on the rise despite the economic situation (as you could see in the recent  Sotheby's result).  With the pop art being back on rise again, simultaneously along side with popularity demand for realism art, Recap will cover the diverse genre of the arts created by Chinese artists;  Wang Yang, Ma Yue, Li Kai Liang, Xie Chang Yong, Yao Jun Zhong.

The exhibition is opening tomorrow from 3pm onwards.

This Singapore artist, a very prolific one, indeed came up with more adventurous works than the last time.
These images has been updated before the exhibition opening already, but they are ready to be view in the gallery now. 
Last time we updated with new works, it was three 'From Beyond the Unknown' series, but the ones on display are actually different.  As a matter of fact, he ended up delivering us another new painting out of his 'Action Painting' series prior to our opening.
You know what to expect of Andre Tan, and you know you won't be disappointed.
His creative process never seem to ease down, and we just can't wait to see more of his paintings..!

Out of Japan, and through her experiences living in overseas.
It is quite clear that she has been influenced from such experience, and western cultures. For this showcase, she calls the three collection "Hide and Seek"

Kyi Wynn, an artist from Myanmar has had his artworks exhibited number of times overseas.
In fact, this is not his first appearance in Singapore.
He has already been featured in Art Season in 2005, as part of Myanmar Modern Group Exhibition.

This time around in Showcase 2010, we feature some of his newer works. Of French President Sarkozy, and USA President Obama, as well as combination of two distinctive Dutch artists; Vincent van Gogh and Piet Mondrian.
 As well as his previous works, he's artworks are composed of juxtaposition of modern society elements.  The composition of elements do not appeal strongly as one wouldn't perceive the artist's opinion straight away, hence it is observably possible; the interpretation and, how one connects such elements are left up to viewers. However one thing that is clear is that viewer can see the calmness in the artworks as artist's wish for peace.
Compared to many of western or even some eastern contemporary artworks that speaks out loud against society, Kyi Wynn's artworks are not very aggressive as such.  However, given the fact that art contexts are somehow oppressed in Myanmar, that buyers actually do go visit artist personally to purchase the artworks, because they cannot be exhibited in public places that grants access to everyone, and possibly could influence in any way, one can clearly see that Kyi Wynn subtly speaks out through his works.

"Nguyen Hung Trinh has loved painting since he was young.  He has spent a long time trying to create somehting specific, a new way to paint and has finally achieved it by painting using one finger and a palette knife.  His style is combination of three techniques: abstract, surrealist and expressionist."

....is as we have already quoted previously in our blog.


The two painting by the Vietnamese artist, Nguyen Hung Trinh, in our gallery, is of two women, and a man.  What you get to see when you look at the painting is rather striking movement of colors.  With his unique method of application of colors, instead of muddling them all together into gray, he let the colors interact on their own on the canvas with his own trace.
To judge whether the paintings are the happy paintings, or sad paintings, is just like any other work, will be up to audiences.  Subtle expression of subjects, and almost violent movement of the color will lead audiences to comprehend the artworks with many emotions.

Just an insight into what we do in the gallery prior to the exhibition opening. This carpentry doesn't happen everyday, though we are somehow capable we'd say, and despite the sluggish weather today, we somehow managed to stretch artworks from Myanmar in the end.

The artworks that came in yesterday, is from Burmese artist. This will be his first appearance in our gallery.
Along with Burmese art we've got yesterday, we also got paintings from a Japanese artist today;  mostly of portraiture paintings.

The more we get of artworks, the more exciting we are for the exhibition to open.  I think it is going to be literally a colorful exhibition, in terms of diversity of artworks and as well as the mish mash of different cultures...!
 
 
We would like to give you another peep into our upcoming Shocase 2010 this Friday.

Nguyen Hung Trinh is from Vietnam and here's some info extract about him from  http://my.opera.com/Nixking/blog/show.dml/3032633


Nguyen Hung Trinh has loved painting since he was young. He has spent a long time trying to create something specific, a new way to paint and has finally achieved it by painting using one finger and a palette knife . His style is combination of three techniques: abstract, surrealist and expressionist.

"My work, first of all, is about a journey inward.
I don’t like to portray reality. What I prefer to do, by my own artworks, is to look for something I met in a dream, something I found accidentally at the corner of my heart. I try to paint, intuitively, a lyrical feeling or a metaphysical thought.
For me, to paint is an attempt to catch up with something that is not only fragile but also unknown. I discover and create my own soul at the same time. I recognize my innermost being through the colors and the figures on the canvas. Imitating the best known phrase by Descartes, I would like to say: I paint, therefore, I am.
The journey inward, therefore, is also a journey outward."
