André Brasilier in Hong Kong
13 June, 2019 - 28 July, 2019Free
French artist André Brasilier’s solo exhibition ‘André Brasilier in Hong Kong’ opens at Opera Gallery on 13 June. Celebrating his 90th birthday this year, Brasilier will be showcasing a selection of works that document his momentous career. Taking inspiration from his love for the equestrian world and his wife and muse, Chantal Brasilier, his pieces focus on natural beauty and Fauvist landscapes.
All crafted with either the use of oil on canvas or watercolours, the artist blends a range of Abstraction and Expressionism leading to a distinct personal style of schematised nature. Brasilier’s paintings depict a peaceful, comfortable world, free from care, in a very simple, stylish manner and bathed in accommodating sunlight.
Painting for over 65 years, Brasilier’s work has been sold and exhibited at various galleries and museums around the world, gaining him a large international following. As part of the Opera Gallery showcase, the exhibition features paintings dating from 1958, along with 21 of Brasilier’s newer works from 2018.
