Katrine Levin Galleries showcases exceptional contemporary artists from places less discovered, focusing on Southern China and East Asia.
30 OCTOBER - 4 NOVEMBER
30 TOTTENHAM STREET, LONDON, W1T 4RJ
First U.K. show by the internationally acclaimed Chinese artist, Gao Xiang. Meet the artist and see his works.
Gao Xiang's paintings and works on paper balance between dreams and reality, East and West. They are an examination of the human spirit, felt in the timelessness of his landscapes and the imagery of animals, especially that of the horse. For Gao Xiang, the horse is an extension of his soul and a symbol of the universe and Chinese traditions.
Gao Xiang's acrylic glass installations follow the theme of his paintings while exploring the classical Chinese landscaping concept of "borrowed scenery". The transparency of the glass transforms the installation depending on the colour and texture of the background.
Gao Xiang's works are widely exhibited internationally and collected by museums in Asia and in Europe.
