FEATURED ARTIST: LAU CHIN HUNG - HONG KONG
Lau Chin Hung reflects a surreal spirituality in his work. His iconic "floating cabbage in the sky" motif is similar to the idea of "the beginning of chaos" in Chinese Taoist belief. The "chaos" refers to the state from which the universe emerged, a state of wholeness and oneness with nature. It also represents the artist's own view of his fundamental cultural roots after residing overseas for over three decades. In its unexpected positioning in his paintings, the cabbage introduces the idea of "dream vs. non-dream", "reality vs. surreality".
Lau Chin Hung was raised in Hong Kong. He received a scholarship to study Fine Arts in France in 1977, graduating from l'Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 1982. In 1986 he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Plastic Arts from Université Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne. He has held solo exhibitions in Europe, Taipei and Hong Kong and has recently achieved success at Sotheby's and Christie's.

FEATURED ARTIST: KARINE GUILLERMIN YAMA - FRANCE
Karine Guillermin Yama's pen and coloured pencil works are a meditation, a point in time and space where dreams and reality intersect in a multitude of lines and details. Her works offer the viewer a story where dreams are confused with reality, where one can get lost in the contours of a leaf or flower. Recalling the childlike sophistication of Henri Rousseau's tropical tableaux, Guillermin Yama's intricate renderings seem restless and expansive yet at their core there is a sense of the regimented, of order.
Born in 1975 in Villeurbanne, France, Guillermin Yama divides her time between France and Japan, a detail that is reflected in the language of her work. The artist has exhibited in several solo and group shows both in Japan and France and at art fairs in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

CURRENT EXHIBITION: KOREAN VOICES | ON NATURE AND BEAUTY26 May - 30 Jun, 2016
This highly anticipated exhibition presents the fluid and abstract representations of the full-figured woman as seen through the eyes of one of China’s leading “post-contemporary” abstract artists. Pang Yongjie draws on mid-eighth century ideals of beauty to bring the viewer a light and effortless depiction of corpulent women in flowing robes and ruby lips whose quietude reflects a deeper understanding of the self. The artist’s works have been widely exhibited in China and across Asia, the USA, and Europe.
