by
Posted 8/27/12

Hong Kong Collector Culture Robin Peckham considers the HK scene with Mimi Brown, Alan Lau, and Lawrence Chu When Artinfo released the China-focused edition of an article featuring the most influential young players in the art world, the preponderance of Hong Kong-based figures, occupying twelve of thirty positions, was unexpected. Despite the meteoric growth of the art fair ArtHK as a pan-Asian platform, the success of international auction firms Christie’s and Sotheby’s in the... [more]

  Artists:  Where do they work? How much do they work? What do they earn?   The ArtSlant Team ran some analyses of these issues using the 2006-2008 PUMS microdata sample from the US Census 2006-2008 and 2005-2010 American Community Survey (ACS). These statistics apply only to conditions within the USA. While the results are not surprising, there are some interesting things to note.    ARTISTS LOCATION IN USA BY STATE In terms of location, artists in the USA are congregating in the largest US centers of California (Los Angeles and...

Li Songsong: On Our China Watchlist  
by
3/28/12 Posted 3/28/12

(Image: Li Songsong, Pigs, 2011, Oil on Canvas,160 x 160 cm; © Courtesy of The Pace Gallery, Beijing) Li Songsong (b. 1973, Beijing, China) Li Songsong is interested in the power of images. Working exclusively from archive photos found in books, newspapers and the internet, his paintings place familiar scenes out of context, rendering their meaning as null and alien, misfit within collective consciousness. Through the act of painting, Li replicates the conceptual processes of photographic... [more]

Leong Ka Tai: On Our China Watchlist  
by
3/16/12 Posted 3/16/12

(Image: Leong Ka Tai, Matzu Pilgrimmage, Taiwan; © Leong Ka Tai) Leong Ka Tai (b. 1946, Hong Kong) My approach in photography is quite flexible. I can just as well use an elaborate lighting setup as using none. To be quite frank, although there was a time in my life when I indulge in technique for technique's sake, now I tend to be a minimalist. The most important thing is to establish a rapport with your subjects. You have to grab their attention and gain their trust from the beginning. Onc... [more]

As a child during the Cultural Revolution, he produced propaganda drawings for the local newspaper in a province near Shanghai. His intricate autobiographical work combines the realism of references to both the Chinese and Western cu... [more]

(Image: Wilson Shieh, Island Country Love Songs Vol.6,  2011, Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 60 cm; © Wilson Shieh) Wilson Shieh (b. 1970, Hong Kong) Chinese artist Wilson Shieh paints and draws in the gongbi, or fine-line, style of Ming dynasty painters of the seventeenth century, but his subject matter is humorously, stylishly, and politically contemporary. Ian Findlay wrote in Asian Art News in 2001, “There is a timeless quality to Shieh’s images that seems to spring from another age and i... [more]

(Image: Zheng Chongbin, Fluctuating White No. 2, 38 in. x 35 in., 2011; © Zheng Chongbin) Zheng Chongbin (b. Shanghai, China) I work in the medium of ink and wash, in which the notion of chromatic relativity is embedded in black and white. What perhaps differentiates my take on space from others is that the visual shifting of space is more prioritized. One can hint at things or they can be more emphatic. The work alternates the material elasticity between solids and voids. Between black a... [more]
