To our followers and future followers: We have some exciting updates regarding Ye Hongxing! We have the pleasure to announce that Beijing-based female artist Ye Hongxing currently has an exhibition in San Diego, California, with works from an artist residency she recently completed at the Lux Art Institute. After working in the studio for a month, she is now showcasing the results of her experience at the Institute until November 1, 2014.The exhibition is dedicated to her unique large-scale collages on canvas, for which she is famous for using stickers and crystals. Representing fantastical figures, religious imagery, and tropical flora and fauna, she succeeds in juxtaposing traditional Chinese items and kitsch images, as can be seen in the pictures above. The impressive amount of brightly-colored sequins and glass beads creates a multilayered world that blurs the boundaries between the real and imaginary.Therefore, we are very proud to be also showcasing some of her recent works at Art+ Shanghai Gallery! Titled The Fantasy Factory, her successful solo show is running until October 26, 2014, at our gallery space in the heart of Shanghai’s powerful North Bund arts district. To support her work, feel free to like or reblog this post on Tumblr!
Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.
Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th
MO Cornelisse is a Dutch artist from the Netherlands working in ceramics. Her work includes her signature melting vases in white with gold leaf. She takes three-dimensional geometric forms and arranges them into various big and small waves in a series entitled Wall Objects. Her white porcelain dolls take the innocuous child’s toy and adds sometimes morbid, sometimes grotesque details, such as a fallen face, a sunken head, mouse ears, or a blockhead. Her artist statement is “to show there are more to ceramics than we used to see.” via artsy.net
