Since 1970, Art Basel’s goal has been to connect the world’s premier galleries and their patrons, as well serving as a meeting point for the international art world.
The reputation for showing high quality work has attracted leading international galleries and collectors, offering visitors the most important art from around the world.
During the Art Basel Amalart & Fancy Art, in collaboration with Art & Context 101 Gallery, presents:
COLORS OF CHINA
June 17th – August 17th
Lee Feng – Liu Yiyuan – HO Kan – Hsiao Chin –Lu ZhiYi
Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern, originated in or is practiced in China or by Chinese artists.
The Chinese way of appreciating a painting is often expressed by the words du hua, “to read a painting.”
This is the aim of the traditional Chinese painter: to capture not only the outer appearance of a subject but its inner essence as well—its energy, life force, spirit.
To accomplish his goal, the Chinese painter more often than not rejected the use of color.
Like the photographer who prefers to work in black and white, the Chinese artist regarded color as distraction. He also rejected the changeable qualities of light and shadow as a means of modeling, along with opaque pigments to conceal mistakes. Instead, he relied on line—the indelible mark of the inked brush.
Amalart would like to extend a big “thank you” to all our friends, supporters, artists, and staff who made and attended the opening of the Collective Exhibition “Colors of China“.
Thank you so much to everyone who came and watched the live streaming on our Facebook Fan Page.
It was a great weekend!
