When in Hong Kong
Those of you in Hong Kong, stop by Blindspot Gallery tonight to celebrate the opening of artist Ho Siu Nam, South’s new show. Incorporating the element of painting, this new series of work is based on a collection of black and white photographs of Tin Shui Wai, one of the largest new cities in Hong Kong, where the artist lives. Highlighting the randomness of existence, the artist picks the color of each block in the painting by throwing a dice. He goes on to paint the repetitive, uniformly sized blocks on the photographs using the paintbrushes left by his late father.
Ho Siu Nam, South: Every Daily is celebrated with an opening reception tonight at Blindspot Gallery and runs through Sept 28, 2013.
