Healing Beauty – Mike Dargas’ First Solo Show in Asia
19 January, 2018 - 9 February, 2018
In his first ever solo exhibition in Asia, Mike Dargas opens in Hong Kong at Opera Gallery. In this series of works, ‘Healing Beauty’, he comes to the forefront in his exploration of fragility and the feminine aspects of identity. The composition of Dargas’ portraiture presents an underlying interest in the covering or coating of the skin or the figure, by liquid or other materials. The lifelike element can be seen within the pose of the sitters, often in movement, with drips suspended in time. Thus, the paintings resemble the photographic medium capturing the ephemeral beauty. The exhibition is open from 10am to 7pm on Monday to Saturday and noon to 6pm on Sunday and Public Holidays.
