Shifting Landscapes @ de Sarthe Gallery

Exhibition: Shifting Landscapes Space: de Sarthe Gallery Hong Kong Artists: Andrew Luk, Chu Teh-Chun Exhibition Period: 11 April - 27 Jun 2020 de Sarthe Gallery is to present Shifting Landscapes, a presentation of artwork by contemporary Hong Kong-based artist Andrew Luk (b.1988) and the Post-war master Chu Teh-Chun (1920-2014). Andrew Luk's large-scale installation Haunted, Salvaged is a giant suspended mobile with disfigured orb-like objects hanging from steel branches that stretch outwards above a sea of expanding spray foam, with cement totems rise from a an eight-by-five-meter bed of stainless steel mesh. The installation is a floating, fictitious representation of an urban landscape filled with anthropogenic contamination. The installation binds the natural and the man-made together, owing to the artist’s realization that not only is humanity a part of the natural world, the entities and forces of humanity are as well. On the other side of the gallery, Chu Teh-Chun’s broad expressive brush strokes elicit vast unexplored landscapes that are illustrated through a deeply rooted consideration of the traditions of Chinese painting and calligraphy. Nature unfurls within Chu Teh-Chun's canvases by distorting the viewer's expectation of horizon and perspective. His poetic expression of natural expanse uncovers realms of the abstract form and in doing so conjures an alternative interpretation of the medium and its capabilities. His artwork is immersed in the core of nature and landscape while remaining true to abstraction. [Extracted from website] For more information
