Hiroshi Senju unveils his first new works since 2015...
Hiroshi Senju has just completed a dynamic series of Waterfall paintings, his first since 2015, which are now being exhibited across a three-city exhibition. They will be showing at Sundaram Tagore's New York galleries (Chelsea and Madison Avenue) and will then travel to London for the opening the gallery's new space at Cromwell Place in London, followed by another exhibition at their Singapore gallery at Gillman Barracks.  "For this group of waterfalls Senju began his creative process on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The pristine beauty of Hawaii has inspired Senju’s work in the past, but it was the rugged, almost prehistoric landscape of Oahu’s northern side that struck a chord. “There are places where you can feel the energy of the beginning,” he says. “Here, I can feel the echo, the vibration of the Earth and the energy of Earth’s creation.” The artist has a profound connection to and love of nature. He has been conveying in paint its power and ability to inspire awe for more than 30 years....

Yayoi Kusama's official message to the world....
Prolific Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, released an official statement today via one of her galleries, OTA Fine Arts, a gallery with spaces in Tokyo, Singapore and Shanghai. Today, with the world facing COVID-19, I feel the necessity to address it with this message. A MESSAGE FROM YAYOI KUSAMA TO THE WHOLE WORLD Though it glistens just out of reach, I continue to pray for hope to shine through Its glimmer lighting our way This long awaited great cosmic glow Now that we find ourselves on the dark side of the world The gods will be there to strengthen the hope we have spread throughout the universe For those left behind, each person’s story and that of their loved ones It is time to seek a hymn of love for our souls In the midst of this historic menace, a brief burst of light points to the future Let us joyfully sing this song of a splendid future Let's go Embraced in deep love and the efforts of people all over the world Now is the time to overcome, to bring peace We gathered for love and I hope to fulfil that desire The time has come to fight and overcome our unhappiness To COVID-19 that stands in our way I say Disappear from this earth We shall fight We shall fight this terrible monster Now is the time for people all over the world to stand up My deep gratitude goes to all those who are already fighting. Revolutionist of the world by the Art From Yayoi Kusama...

“Anonymous Society for Magick” at Blindspot Gallery, curated by Ying Kwok...
“Anonymous Society for Magick” featuring Chen Wei, Hao Jinban, Lam Tung Pang, Wang Tuo and Trevor Yeung. “Anonymous Society for Magick” is a group exhibition opening at Blindspot Gallery on the 14th of April in Hong Kong featuring works of various media by Chen Wei, Hao Jingban, Lam Tung Pang, Wang Tuo, and Trevor Yeung. Curator Ying Kwok borrows the concept of Magick from early nineteenth century occultist and ceremonial magician Aleister Crowley’s definition of Magick as the ‘science of understanding oneself and one’s conditions,’ in a comparative study of how artists apply that understanding to their own artistic practices. Chen Wei meticulously stages scenes of urban amazement and theatrical distraction, working across photography and mixed media installations. The ensemble includes a neon light installation Drifting Along (Hong Kong) (2020), which offers a diagnosis of the contemporary social conditions in China and Hong Kong....

#ArtInMyCity - Support Local Artists, Galleries & Designers...
#ARTINMYCITY The world has changed drastically over the last few months, but despite this, we continue to be hopeful! This is an opportunity for us to re-think how we've been connecting previously and to see if there are alternatives to maintaining and growing our respective art eco-systems.  In order to ensure the continued existence of our cultural scene, it’s crucial that we take active steps to ensure its survival. With cultural events postponed or cancelled for months to come, it's up to us to support creative talents and cultural communities during this extremely challenging time.  With international travel and movement drastically reduced, access to art and design across international borders will become increasingly difficult, not to mention more costly. We have already begun to see price surcharges climb for shipping and logistics, which will undoubtedly affect art 'consumimg' habits.   As a first step, we have made some changes on our site to ensure that you can discover artworks and artists in your city, from the comfort of your home. We have added the option to filter products by 'item location', so you will be able to shop and support artists, designers and galleries in your city! Let’s support our local arts communities, every little helps. To contribute, use #ArtInMyCity to start sharing your experiences with art - whether it's a throwback to an exhibition you caught months ago, or if it's an artist whose works you came across in a local show, exhibition, or an artwork in your home.  Stay tuned for more details on #ArtInMyCity!    ...

Blanketed in white - CANVAS HOUSE by Figment & Ministry of Design...
“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past”, says Ministry of Design's founder, Colin Seah. With Canvas House, Figment and MOD bring the two worlds of future and past together in a striking white-washed manner, with a converted conservation house in Singapore, which recently opened in February 2020. Ministry of Design explores history and our relationship with the past, present and future through the concept of layers in Canvas House at Blair Road. Blurring the boundaries between space and object, MOD conceptually blanketed Canvas House with a layer of white that provides a canvas for the future, whilst revealing historical preservation in concentrated spots. The house rhythmically reveals parts of its past, with Shadows of old timber as well as Layers of revealed brick and intricate details of re-purposed and upcycled furniture. At the same time, MOD invites visitors to imagine a future with Dream, a text-based neon piece that the studio created, with a quote by Thomas Jefferson that encapsulates MOD’s approach to Canvas House. The quote summarizes the attitude of the house; Colin explains, “it is a neutral white canvas for the future to be dreamt upon, rather than a wholesale homage to the past.”...

Largest solo exhibition of Genevieve Chua works opens at STPI Gallery...
A new show by Singaporean painter Genevieve Chua opens at STPI from the 22nd of February, 2020, featuring the largest exhibition of the artist's works to date. Recognised for her abstract approach to painting, Chua has been tapped as one of the most promising artists from Singapore in the last decade. Her use of geometric shapes and a monochromatic palette create complex, intricate works with patterns that evoke qualities of near-abstraction and optical art. An element of awareness in her practice adds playfulness to her exploration of visual perception and how the viewer interacts with her works.  ...

Richard Streitmatter-Tran at de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong...
de Sarthe recently opened their new show; its second solo exhibition for the Vietnam-based contemporary artist Richard Streitmatter-Tran, titled, We No Longer See the Stars. Featuring a new series of paintings, sculptures, and interactive installations, the exhibition stages a commentary on the global tension and social unrest consequent to ongoing disputes across the world. We No Longer See the Stars opens on 18 January and runs through 7 March 2020. In Bless the Beasts and the Children (2019-20), freestanding portraits of people of various ethnicities dressed in black are propped throughout the gallery. As visitors weave through the space, they are forced to confront the unwavering gaze of the painted subjects. Titled after the 1971 film, in which a group of youth struggle in a pyrrhic battle against preordained defeat, the series speaks to the universal tenacity of human will in the face of conflict. Positioned in a front-facing formation, the figures stand in a field of echoed silence....
