Asian Art Revisited

Monday 25 September 2017 – Saturday 14 October 2017

This selection of works aims to illustrate a few basic tenets of Asian art from Marjorie’s perspective:

Good brush techniques transcend beyond Chinese paintings

That craft, rituals and folk art have an impact on the choice of colour for artists in Asia

That black and white are considered ‘colours’ in Southeast Asian art

That Asian artists see vertical and horizontal compositions as basis of strong and stable paintings

That Asian artists consider paper and canvas as equally important mediums
