> DESCRIPTION

Red Elation Gallery is pleased to present “Second Nature” – a group exhibition by Hong Kong and Japanese artists Kei Harada, Jane Hung, Karen Louie, Kazuki Mizuguchi, Yasushi Yamada and Hideaki Yamamoto. While using a natural element as a point of observation, the featured works express the artists’ personal experiences and explore a new perceptive relationship between human life and its origins. Human intervention in nature is not necessarily about dominance; the artists present their works in a delicate and poetic way to arouse everyone’s original thoughts amid the hustle and bustle of life, creating a symbiosis between man and nature.

“This world” by Japanese artist Kazuki Mizuguchi uses a traditional Japanese painting material – mineral pigment - to depict the beauty of flowers on the lake. The peaceful and beautiful world in the painting is separated from the hustle and bustle of life. The artist dissolves his own body and emotions into the air to show the nuances of nature and turns the moment into eternity. Kei Harada’s “Red Swinging” presents the commonality of humans and plants. He constructs a poetic painting regardless of the human subject or object. Yasushi Yamada‘s oil painting “huuji, raiji” is a collage of his past memories and experiences on canvas. He shows a fleeting passing away with an out of focus image.

Local artist Jane Hung uses painting and printmaking as her media, Her work “Manjusaka” starts from a drop of water and a drop of ink, each flowing freely on the canvas. With constant permutations of fruit and roots, they circle each other, some continuing to split and some continuing to fade away. Karen Louie extends interesting ideas from extraordinary life to her artwork. “Everyone Got a Halo - Notes of my Backyard” tells a story about interesting things that happened when she was gardening recently in her abundant backyard at home.
