Baroque Deconstruction

Keita Sagaki (b.1984 in Ishikawa, Japan). In his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Fabrik Gallery will showcase 7 new drawings on paper inspired by some of the most celebrated Baroque masters including Vermeer, Caravaggio, Brueghel, and Rembrandt – the “Baroque Deconstruction” body of work took Keita Sagaki nearly a year to draw.


Some of the featured works are “Boy with a Basket of Fruit” by Caravaggio, “Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window” by Vermeer and “Flowers in a Blue Painted Vase” by Brueghel. “If you look closely and within, a world of countless manga characters unfolds which ornate my works, bringing into life the old masters in a fresh and distinct practice, and concept.”

Artist Spotlight - Xu Songbo

Xu Songbo was born in 1971 in Nanyang, Henan province. Since his childhood, Xu has been studying the Tang Dynasty. This long-held admiration for the Tang has led the artist on a quest to use his paintbrush to recount the story of the great Tang Dynasty's many characters and spirits.

 

According to Xu, to truly understand the spirit and culture of the Tang, one must experience the lifestyle of the era, which is why he took up the practice of archery - a skill crucial to the creation of his artwork.

Xu Songbo received a BA from the Fine Arts Department of Henan University and an MA from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts. He is currently a Vice Professor at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts.
