FEATURED ARTIST: KOSO SATO - JAPAN
An eclectic artist, Koso Sato's (b.1948) work combines neo-cubism, the hues of Fauvism and the lines of expressionism with elements of metaphysical art and surrealism. His personal style brings together the multi-faceted nature of Western art influenced by modern Japanese painting. Derived from years of sketching and filtering abstract simplicity, Sato’s work reaches out to the viewer through its profound use colour and creative expressions of texture. For the artist, the gradual evolution of his art has been formed by continuous reflection and understanding of shape itself. Over time, his use of “romantic” colours have evolved from a slightly sentimental passion to calm, introverted depth.
FEATURED ARTIST: KOSO SATO - SOUTH KOREA
Yoo Sun-Tai (b.1957) developed his singular style of three-dimensional painting while living in Paris. Yoo is taken with ordinary objects such as books, typewriters and clocks, seeing in them metaphors for life whose meanings are dependent upon personal imagination and interpretation. His paintings conjure up a surrealist poetic world, of otherworldly three-dimensional landscapes and impossible laws of gravity. As part of his metaphoric language, Yoo utilizes Korean characters in his work, adding them at the end of the painting process to create texture and also to bind the images with the words in metaphorical parlance.
FEATURED ARTIST: PAWEL KUCZYNSKI - POLAND
Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski (b.1976) uses satire to portray today’s social, political and cultural reality. His cleverly crafted illustrations seem humorous at first glance, but upon closer inspection, they reveal some of the serious issues facing today’s world. Working in coloured pencil and mixed media, Kuczynski’s work revolves around issues of poverty, war, political integrity and wage disparity, prompting the viewer to pause and ponder. His aim is to get you thinking long before the significance of his message is deciphered. In that way, he challenges us to re-examine our preconceived notions, or even those we ignore, and to offer us a chance to reassess our thinking.
NOW AT FABRIK GALLERY
CURRENT EXHIBITION: “Reflections”17 March, 2017 - 30 April, 2017A joint exhibition by Pang Yongjie and Xu Songbo
Fabrik Gallery presents the works of two of China’s leading contemporary artists, Pang Yongjie and Xu Songbo. Drawing on the aesthetic of mid-eighth century Tang dynasty norms of beauty, Pang extols the female physique, its beauty expressed in the artist’s signature style of abstract forms. Xu revisits the Tang dynasty’s love of horsemanship, creating highly detailed compositions that capture the majesty of equestrianism across the plains of ancient Chang’an.
