PEAKS and VALLEYS - 千峰萬壑

NockArt Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of work from the third residency, entitled PEAKS and VALLEYS. It incorporates the paintings of three artists who visited Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) with Michael Nock in March 2015: Tim Allen, Steve Lopes and Dapeng Liu.

PEAKS and VALLEYS showcases the work of three very different artists who each had to adapt to new landscapes and push themselves beyond their comfort zones on the mountain. The result is three distinctive yet complimentary series of works that each tell their own 'story' of Huangshan.

NockArt畫廊向您榮譽呈現第三屆藝術家駐留項目成果畫作展 - 主題“千峰万壑”。本次展覽包括2015年3月與Michael Nock一同前往黃山寫生的三位藝術家的畫作:Tim Allen, Steve Lopes 以及 Dapeng Liu (劉大鵬)。

千峰万壑將展示三位風格迥異的藝術家遠在山區,在陌生環境中挑戰前所未有時的創作。三位藝術家最終以截然不同的作品各自訴說了不同的黃山故事,向黃山致敬。

Banned in Burma: Painting Under Censorship
Oct

to Nov 9

Banned in Burma: Painting Under Censorship

One of the first exhibitions of its kind, featuring works of leading Burmese artists who endured and resisted censorship under the military regime.

For 50 years Burmese painters labored under strict state censorship. This exhibition will feature paintings produced under military governments from 1962 to 2011 and in the aftermath of the March 2011 transition to civilian rule. Visitors will enjoy a rare glimpse into the cultural community and mindset of artists operating under the mechanics of censorship. For many painters, this will be the first international exhibition of their work.

At a time when contemporary Burmese art is poised to follow China, Vietnam and other developing Asian countries into the international art market, it is important to understand the straightjacket of state control that existed until very recently. International art institutions such as the Guggenheim, the Singapore Art Museum, and the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum are already collecting Burmese art, but there has yet to be a major exhibition in Hong Kong showcasing established and emerging voices in the Burmese art scene.

Paintings that drew the attention of the Censorship Board will be displayed alongside paintings that escaped scrutiny through use of euphemisms or abstraction. Censorship in Burma often centered on color and format rather than ideology, and painters who used more modern, semi-abstract and abstract depictions faced great challenges as the Board favored more traditional and realist works. These paintings reflect Burma's changing landscape and society, and offer a unique opportunity to view the artistic traditions of a once-closed land.
