Please note: Aside from 4th April, rest of the exhibition period is only available by appointment.
Due to the recent novel coronavirus outbreak, Art Basel Hong Kong has been officially cancelled this year. However, we are delighted to announce that in addition to participating on the Art Basel Online Viewing platform we will also showcase the work in our Aberdeen gallery under the title, Contemporary Forms of Ink Painting, starting on April 4th, coinciding with HK Art Gallery Association's South Island ArtDay.
For a long time, contemporary ink art was limited to the Asian continent. However, through the diligent work from these artists, contemporary ink art has found its way to the West and has since influenced many artists. While rooted in ink tradition, these artists strive to revolutionise the classical format and reinvented traditional ink art, be it through the use of innovative media, choice of subject matter, presentation or composition. Artists showcasing here include the prestigious Chinese diaspora Walasse Ting, internationally acclaimed Zhang Yu, Nan Qi and Lan Zhenghui from Mainland China, Hong Kong sculptor Kum Chi-keung and the emerging female artist Zhang Yirong.
These artists collectively stand at the forefront of a movement to take traditional ink painting into a new era, pushing the boundaries of what defines and determines contemporary ink art.
