The Dark Art of Tim Hon Hung Lee

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Tim Lee’s large-scale ink drawings and paintings on rice paper are, at a first glance, tightly bound with the visual aesthetics of Chinese painting, while simultaneously referencing elements of traditional European art. The conflation of these visual cultures is unsurprising: Lee is a British artist of Chinese descent. But the work does not just amount to a reverential homage to these past cultures.

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 23, 2014
Japan-born, London-based artist Christian Hidaka's paintings generally focus on three types of space: deserts, mountains and caves. His images tend to "alienate themselves from traditional modes of landscape depiction: without a homely place of reference the viewer is left to wander in an alien world to explore possibility rather than impossibility."
