Event Details

iPRECIATION will hold a solo exhibition titled Wonderful World of Color by Tse Yim On《謝炎安的彩⾊美好世界》featuring around 15 works between 2011 – 2018 by Hong Kong contemporary artist Tse Yim On 謝炎安, on July 18 2018 to August 5 2018 at the Gallery by the Harbour, Harbour City, Hong Kong. Featured works include acrylic paintings on canvas from Tse’s Mongkok Library series, Hong Kong Seals Series in 2011, 2012 as well as latest paintings.

In late 2012, Tse gained significant recognition for his Mongkok Library series when it previewed in Hong Kong. Not only was his choice of colour combination refreshing to the local crowd, the familiar subject matters also spoke to them. Tse’s colourful repertoire continues to evolve in this solo exhibition. A portion of Hong Kong Seals Series that will be exhibited reveals a specific and striking shade of red and blue that Tse has used. Particularly inspired by the 1970s era when Tse was born, he considers subject matters such as cultural figures, visual style during the time, landmarks like public housing, even imagined memories as a child, as foundation for his creation. Tse manipulates these images of collective memories and reassembles them to mimic a Seal Carving composition. In his own way, Tse uses his highly colored lens of cartoonic visuals and pop culture aesthetics to express a one-of-a-kind visual narrative in Hong Kong.

Born in Hong Kong, in 1974, Tse is a contemporary artist who is known for his bold and fanatically colored tongue-in-cheek works. Like the majority of Generation X in Hong Kong, Tse grew up in an environment culturally influenced by local and foreign popular culture, particularly Japanese animation, games and manga; apparent in the caricatured characters and bold text that appear in his paintings. Working primarily with acrylic on canvas, Tse’s vividly colored paintings depict familiar imagery derived from Hong Kong and speaks strongly of identity and culture from the perspective of a Hong Kong citizen through his uniquely quirky perspective.

About iPRECIATION

 

Established in 1999, iPRECIATION is a fine art company that showcases the best of modern and contemporary Asian Art. As a herald of the visual arts, iPRECIATION is committed to put forth platforms and propel significant and promising artists to the forefront through successful staging of large-scale exhibitions.

 

Since its inception, iPRECIATION has given prominence to contemporary Asian art through the installation of quality artworks in public and commercial spaces not only in Singapore but also globally. iPRECIATION, with its proficiency in Chinese, South East Asian and Singapore art, has complemented its gallery business with professional art consultancy services to both individuals and corporations.

 

Artists currently represented include: Nobel Laureate in Literature Gao Xingjian, Taiwanese Master Sculptor Ju Ming, innovative Hong Kong ink artist Irene Chou, Singapore pioneer contemporary ink artist Zhuang Shengtao, acclaimed Chinese calligrapher and ink artist Wang Dongling, pioneer of Singapore contemporary art Tang Da Wu, foremost abstract painter and Cultural Medallion Milenko Prvacki, and groundbreaking Singaporean performance artist Lee Wen. Over the years, iPRECIATION has been promoting promising talents such as the meticulous China based painter Zhang Jian Jun and Jin Jie, the daring commentator of Hong Kong’s contemporary culture, Tse Yim On, and Singaporean artists Oh Chai Hoo, Baet Yeok Kuan and Tay Bak Chiang.

 

The Living World Series by Ju Ming has become a permanent feature at two new modern office buildings, CapitaGreen building at 138 Market Street and The Metropolis business center at 9 North Buona Vista Drive. At CapitaGreen, a series of ten painted bronze sculptures depicts the everyday man in their daily urban lives. At The Metropolis, the corporate environment is livened up with a cluster of twelve Gentlemen bronze sculptures. The Living World Series portrays a spectrum of social phenomenon departing from his iconic Taichi Series since the 1980s. In 2017, Lining Up, a set of ten life-sized sculptures from the Living World Series by Ju Ming has been permanently installed at the main entrance of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre portraying the lively spirit of people waiting eagerly to enter the centre.

 

In 2015, Ju Ming’s Taichi Series enjoyed a four-month long outdoor exhibition at the Singapore Botanic Gardens; and his Living World Series completed a traveling exhibition to four major Chinese cities of Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian and Shanghai. In 2016, iPRECIATION presented the inaugural outdoor exhibition Envision: Sculptures @ the Garden City 2016, featuring fourteen sets of monumental sculptures by eleven Asian artists from China, Indonesia, Singapore and Taiwan, namely Baet Yeok Kuan, Chen Sai Hua Kuan, Gu Wenda, Ju Ming, Kumari Nahappan, Lim Soo Ngee, Shen Lieyi, Sri Astari Rasjid, Yuyu Yang, Zhan Wang and Zhang Huan. The exhibition was held in the heart of Singapore’s historical and cultural centre in the Civic District, Fullerton Hotel and Marina Bay precinct.

 

Ms Helina Chan, the Managing Director of iPRECIATION, is the recipient of the coveted New Tourism Entrepreneur Award 2005 by Singapore Tourism Board, which recognizes the entrepreneur whose company has made major contributions to Singapore’s tourism industry. iPRECIATION aims to build an artistic foundation through its presentation of a diversity of small to large-scale exhibitions that meets the visual inclinations of its patrons; forming and nurturing a creative focal point in Asia, where individuals can convene and express their artistic sensibilities through art.
