Zheng Chongbin: Layering Views 
Morita Shiryu: Dragon Knows Dragon

This exhibition entitled Layering Views, showcases Zheng's newest light-and-space installation conceived especially for Gallery149, abstract works from his most recent series, and a selection of key earlier ink paintings dating back to the late-1980s. Zheng's latest ink-and-acrylic innovations continue to investigate abstraction and perception. The exhibition offers the opportunity to observe the ways in which Zheng Chongbin has reconceptualized and transformed the role of ink as a medium.

Twenty one works by Morita Shiryu are showcased in this exhibition presented in collaboration with the Bokujin-Kai. The majority of the pieces are from the 1960s and have never been shown in Hong Kong before. The works in particular the ones that use the same character allow viewers to compare and contrast the variations within his oeuvre. Morita pushed the boundaries of East Asian calligraphy, thus making significant contributions to intercultural discourse between artists in Japan and the West.

Exhibition: 2019.03.30-04.19
