Spanish Art Exhibition (III)
Third Programme of the Spanish Ar t exhibition: Life through inner-self contemplation
(Lola Abellan, Michelle Conception)
After appreciation on modern landscape and personal landmark, our third programme brings audiences to inner-self reflections by presenting Lola Abella and Michelle Concepcion.
With the theme of organic curves and composition, Lola leads us to a journey of color and spatial harmony. Her depiction of flower-like subjects is a balance between the western floral arrangement where colour richness dominates, and the Japanese ikebana mood where emptiness and deliberate spatial void symbolizes beauty. Audiences’ contemplation is encouraged and also guided through her use of light outlines in the semi-abstract paintings.
Michelle has even stepped further to open up her canvas and artistic space for audiences’ interpretation and participation. She has intentionally evoked extensive understandings through enhancing visual meditation elements: soft, dreamy shapes which floats in deep space, extraordinary illusion of textures, intricate interplay of luminescence and darkness, volume and transparency. While what she emphasizes is contemplation rather than arousing emotions, Michelle has also controlled on a balance of visual elements – the colour, the patterning, and the spatial arrangements.
Appreciation of life involves our discovery of different perspectives and elements throughout our life journey. We sincerely hope that this summer exhibition series from an enjoyment of modern landscapes, through memories of personal stories, to our inner-self contemplation brings to you tastes of inspiration and pleasure.
