Opera Gallery Hong Kong is thrilled to present a new collective exhibition that celebrates the history and heritage of Asian art, reflecting each artists’ state of mind, addressing the themes of national identity, nature and humanity.
Through abstract art in Asia, the exhibition will launch a dialogue that connects the past and present, traditional and modern designs, as well as Eastern and Western influences. Ancient Middle Eastern calligraphy, traditional Chinese ink wash painting, Korean scroll painting and paper-making, all of which are present in this show, were created through time-honoured practices of traditional Asian art.
‘Asia Abstract’ will boast a collection that fuses traditional methods with modern skills. Moving beyond language, abstract art is used for expressing the self, originality and creative impulses, providing contemplative space for expression that does not rely on language or translation.
