ABOUT ARTIST

A graduate of the China Academy of Art, Chen Dongfan works primarily in painting but has also employed installation and video, along with other formats. Chen takes colour itself to reflect adroitly on issues of form and as a means of finding balance amid disorder. In the artist’s opinion, the work exists organically as a means via which both to explore and to describe things themselves indeterminate. Here the artist’s relationship to the work is not one merely of expression, but rather to engage himself more as a medium, the work and to scrutinize one another and working together in mutual refinement.

Works by Chen Dongfan, a contemporary artist working from both Hangzhou, China and New York, and our newest addition to AG Gallery, appear spontaneous and are immersive and captivating. His pieces, often painted with thick strokes and presented in large-scale, appear to be an explosion of emotion and youthful vibrance. A collage of colors and characters, signs and scenes. He seems to combines both urban grit with childlike innocence to create a sensation that all at once feels surreal yet organic. Rather than his usual large-scale works, the pieces featured in Dongfan’s upcoming solo exhibition, Met You, will be a series of smaller paintings; of portraits and abstract visual poetry.

Art In Boxes, Post Exclusive -Closing on March 30, 2015-

Canine Universe by Raphael Balme

Canine Universe by Raphael Balme

It is March and our Art In Boxes exhibit of the post-exclusive part is nearly over! For those unfamiliar, Art In Boxes, which began during the holiday season, showcases many artists from all over the world who offers works (such a prints, zines, jewelry, and more) that would make wonderful gifts. Out of the wide variety of chosen artists we started with, many are gone but do not fret–! There are still a few left.

To start, we have Japanese artist Kazuhiro Nagi; this experimental artist created his stunning piece “Mattina” (or “Morning” in Italian) by using wafers, meant for wrapping powdered medicine, to create an explosion of bright color.
Also hailing from Japan is Kentaro Horiuchi. His psychedelic paintings use bright colors and tiny swirling detail to transport you into the unique landscape of his creations.
Within the dark and austere pages of Raphael Balme’s art-zine “Canine Universe”, you will find a dream-like world both quiet and vicious. Featured are full-page prints of Balme’s painted illustrations accompanied by handwritten commentary.
One might think of temporary tattoos as childlike, but these beautiful wearable works of art by Pepper Ink Collection are actually quite elegant. Artists offer many different designs from vintage florals and insects to more modern designs such as a geometric skull.
Villa Sorgenfrei World offers delicate, beautiful charms capture the feeling of a warm summer meadow by literally capturing wildflowers and other specimens that one might find there in tiny handblown glass baubles.
Work by these artists is still available at AG Gallery for a limited time so please come to check them out before it is too late!

Andrea Lauren -Now On View-

Andrea Lauren is a textile designer and print maker who’s charming works are a delight to witness! Using a multitude of traditional media, Lauren’s pieces may be contemporary, but still hold a feeling of old-world sentiment. Though Lauren is originally from England, these works are somewhat reminiscent of Eastern European folk stories and children’s books, both in content and style. Almost as fun as the final products is the process itself of making each print. Among the printmaking methods the artist uses to create her works are silk-screening and linoleum cut stamps.

Though these processes of printmaking allow the artist to make several of a similar image, the method of doing everything by hand from cutting to inking to printing itself means that each print will actually be slightly different. Further more, these prints are only available in limited run, and once they are gone, they’re gone for good!

To see some of these limited edition Andrea Lauren prints (of both silk-screen and linoleam) please visit the AG Gallery.

KENTARO HORIUCHI -Now On View-

Raised in Osaka, Japanese artist Kentaro Horiuchi’s works are vivid and bold. His brightly colored creations seem to exist on another plane, pouring onto the canvas from deep within the artist’s own stream of consciousness. Each piece has painstaking, minute details, and yet when all combined together creates an image that is larger than life.

While sporadic as they may seem, Horiuchi has an excellent command of color and design. The vibrant colors used by the artist create a cerebral, even psychedelic landscape for the viewer to explore. By gazing into these works of art, you too can be transported to Horiuchi’s world.

 

His works are on view at AG Gallery through ending of March, 2015. To learn more about Kentaro Horiuchi please visit his website at https://sites.google.com/site/khterritory/
