Feng Xiao-Min: Inspired Resonance – Opera Gallery Presents Feng Xiao-Min’s Hong Kong Solo Exhibition

Opera Gallery, located on Wyndham Street, will host Feng Xiao-Min’s first Hong Kong solo exhibition from 18 January – 28 February 2019.  A new collection entitled ‘Inspired Resonance’ by the French-Chinese contemporary artist showcases colourful and meditative abstract landscape-inspired works.

The exhibition features a total of 27 of Feng’s large scale ethereal paintings dating from 2013 – 2018, set aside specially for the Opera Gallery exhibition with 20 of these pieces never seen before.

After studying fine art in China and spending 30 years in France, Feng’s work celebrates the fusion of Eastern aesthetics and Western techniques depicting his visions of landscapes from dusk to dawn.

No specific subject or location inspires Feng; instead he focuses on the powerful visual effect produced by the blending of colour and the spatial configuration of the whole image.

Taking inspiration from his training in traditional Chinese calligraphy, Feng uses acrylic on canvas and skilfully mimics the Chinese aesthetic of ink on paper, often being known to paint on the floor to control acrylic and water flow.

As part of the Opera Gallery showcase, Feng will exhibit an artwork honouring his peer Zao Wou-Ki. Feng and Zao, along with artist Chu Teh-Chu, have been instrumental to the French-Chinese art movement in Paris and assure a continuity of monumental colourful abstract works by Eastern artists on the French art scene.

Creatively blending the spiritual landscapes of the East, and the romantic colours of the West in their paintings, these artists have expanded the language of painting to show the Western world the creativity and excellence of Chinese artists and their origins.

Following his fine art studies in China, Feng enrolled in the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (National School of Fine Arts of Paris) and later taught at the same esteemed institute from 1997 to 2000. It was after this that Feng focused entirely on his own creations.

Feng was commissioned to produce an artwork for the 2017 BRICS Summit – the international relations conference – of which China is a member. Today, his artworks are frequently exhibited at international art fairs and biennales as well as displayed in various private and public collections, including galleries, museums and foundations around the globe.

For more information, you can find more details about it by reading the article through the link below, here is an extract:

Featured Chinese-French artists, Zao Wou-Ki (b. 1920), Chu Teh-Chun (b. 1920)and Feng Xiao-Min (b. 1959) are known for their modernist approach in integrating traditional Chinese brush-and-ink technique with Western abstract art. Over the course of their artistic career in France, the artists have acquired techniques passed on by European masters and have adopted manners of abstract expressionism and lyrical abstraction. The rhythmic nuances demonstrated in their bold sweeping strokes of colours are reminiscent of Chinese landscape paintings. While the message of the artwork may be elusive, viewers are left to bask in the immense beauty and strong emotional impact derived from the artwork’s depth, poetry and musicality. Combining Western abstraction with Eastern sensibilities, the artists collectively aim to expand the limits of painting, express nature in its fullness and give an authentic Chinese vision of the world.
