淡 Daam

This group exhibition presents three Korean artists Suh Seung-Won, Kim Keun-Tai and Kim Deok-Han as a continuation of The Korean Contemporary Art Exhibition that took place at PMQ earlier this year. The versatility of the word “淡” or “daam” (which can be used to describe the colour, taste or a state of mind) is explored and applied to the works of the three artists, as they convey a sense of Korean identity and tranquil minds. This exhibition is on the 8th floor of the gallery.

When: Wednesday, 1 May to Sunday, 19 May, 11am to 7pm (gallery closed Mondays and Public Holidays)
Where: Whitestone Gallery, 7-8/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong

Qin Qi: Fragrance Of The Night

Qin Qi’s debut solo exhibition in Hong Kong presents large-scale oil paintings with themes of colonialism and distant cultures.

The classical aesthetics and storytelling are broken up through unrelated objects that take on new symbolism and associations.

Garth Weiser

Garth Weiser’s layered paintings are dense and dimensional. His approach explores the potential of painting and surface, which results in engaging detailed works consisting of layers of frenzied lines, slashes, curves. It takes seeing the works up close to be able to visually pick apart the layers and uncover the explosive gestures that make up the pieces.

When: Wednesday, 15 May to Thursday, 27 June, 11am to 7pm (gallery closed Sundays and Mondays)
Where: Simon Lee Gallery, 304, 3/F, The Pedder Building, 12 Pedder Street, Central, Hong Kong
