Aspire- Wayne Warren, China Art Projects – project space, Hong Kong, September 2015

Wayne Warren plays with words and values. Notions of greed as contained in the dual words ‘want’ and ‘need’ are embedded in the mundane. Our values are distorted when materialism and the puerile is elevated to ‘god-like’ status. Warrens work highlights the consumer’s fixation with materialism and challenges the market valuation of physical goods. Warren graduated in 1972 from Exeter University, London, with a bachelor’s degree in Art and Education Psychology. He has held solo and group exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Japan, Europe and the United States since 1976 and his work is held in government, corporate and private collections internationally.

Hong Kong is experiencing an interesting time in its history. A barren and rocky island at the extremity of the Qing Empire in 1842 when it was forcibly annexed by the British Empire, Hong Kong has grown into a major world finance and business center. Such rapid social and civil change must have left a profound impression on the thinking and cultural development of this society. The Cat Street Gallery and China Art Projects have invited 18 Hong Kong artists to address these questions in a unique body of work for this ‘Back to the Future’ exhibition.

Gao Ping, China Art Projects – project space, Hong Kong, September 2015

Gao Ping trained in the art powerhouse of the Oil Painting Department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing,she now combines her acrylic and oil painting practice with her delicate ink on paper works, inspired by the traditions of the Song and Ming Dynasty masters. A paradox lies at the heart of Gao Ping’s art practice: the longer you look at works which initially seem frail, delicate, and even tentative, with their tiny figures or domestic objects floating in a vast emptiness, the more emotive weight they attain. They deserve the long look, and repay you for it with a growing sense of stillness, and an awareness of how beautifully observed they are.

Gao Ping, Seva Frangos Art, Perth Australia

Gao Ping finds her ink work both sad and “calm in heart”. In these works, created with traditional inks on silk or rice paper, objects float in a vast empty space, creating a dynamic relationship between the forms themselves and the space they inhabit. Her deep knowledge and understanding of traditional painting is evident in the ‘rightness’ of her placement and the confidence of her mark-making. She says that tiny things are sometimes more important than the large and obvious, and her work creates an ongoing narrative grounded in her idiosyncratic observations of people, places and events.

Soho Lane Installation, Tony Scott, Soho 189 Hong Kong

Scott’s work has been indelibly shaped by his experiences of a changing China over that time. Found objects picked up in Beijing’s Panjiayuan “dirt market” are employed in witty constructions which merge the autobiographical – memory and corporeal experience – with the metaphysical. His ‘Modern Medical Machine’ installations comprised of sinister apparatus, often in combination with the traditional acupuncture figures he has found in the markets, suggest the fragility of human biology and its vulnerability in the face of disease and invasive medical interventions.
