|SinArts Gallery is delighted to invite you to Art The Hague 2018. We are looking forward to presenting work by two of masters of contemporary Chinese art of the past 30 years combined with a young emerging generation of artists we are very proud to represent.
Please get in touch for complimentary tickets to the art fair.
LIU Ye – Liu Ye is a contemporary Chinese painter best known for his colorful, stylized images. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Liu’s work does not focus on the political and economic changes in China, but rather seeks to depict his own playful imaginings and interests. At Art The Hague, we will be presenting a set of amazing mezzotint prints from his very first exhibition in Europe (Berlin) in 1993. What makes this set so special is that all 8 prints are artist proofs (pröbe). A unique set!
FANG Lijun – Fang Lijun is one of the most recognized painters and printmakers of contemporary China. Best known for his politically driven, cynical paintings which reflect on the history of 20th-century China. Most people know his fantastic painting of screaming or yawning heads, of heads swimming in clear blue water. However, Fang Lijun remains a printmaker by education and at Art The Hague we pay homage to the effortless talent in his deeply moving woodblockprints.
CHEN Hangfeng – Chen Hangfeng currently has an exhibition at our gallery. In his practice, Chen Hangfeng explores the ideas and effects of cross cultural influencing, sometimes very abrubt, but also the subtle nuances. He applies traditional technieques to explore contemporay questions.
CHEN Xi – Chen Xi was the first artist we presented when we started the gallery almost 3 years ago. His exquisit technique, his blatant focus, and his beautiful shapes make his work fit closely to what we love. At Art the Hague we will be presenting one of Chen Xi’s latest drawing, ink on handcrafted xuan (or rice) paper. The paper itself is an artwork, the drawing will suck you in.
MA Hui – Ma Hui is a Chinese Born Artist, living in Amsterdam and is famous for her knowledge of and expression in using ink on paper. Inspired by her childhood memories and personal attachment to her hometown, she expresses her emotion through the stroke of ink. This is the first time we will be showing her work, all in preparation for her solo show at the gallery from october 20th.
ZHOU Junsheng – first time we are able to present a young talent, now residing in the Netherlands. For him, photography is an action, much less than it is a medium. Look out for how he plays with light.Naoki FUKU – The instantaneous effect of black ink on paper, compounded by splashing acrylic and often physically molesting the paper allows the artist to represent a diversity of emotions. In “Studies of the Human Mind” Naoki searches for his own identity, trying to grasp it and feel how it is to have one. The resulting confrontation with human identity results in striking depictions of mental confusions and inner convulsions.
