Art Stage Jakarta 2017
Wei-Ling Gallery is delighted to announce their participation in the 2nd edition of Art Stage Jakarta 2017. This also marks the gallery’s 7th time overall participating in Art Stage, following Art Stage Singapore earlier in January this year.
The gallery will be exhibiting a selection of artworks from three contemporary Malaysian artists namely, Fauzan Omar, Hamidi Hadi and Juhari Said.
Fauzan Omar is an established artist renowned for his layered paintings and process oriented works. Nature has been his main subject matter throughout his practice. He commits himself to studying the constant cycle of natural processes; such as diversity, growth, decay, blossom and erosion. Fauzan’s choice of medium has ranged anywhere from acrylic paintings on canvas, to site-specific installations. Presently, Fauzan is working on sustainable development through the arts in response to the ever-changing climate and continuous environmental destruction. His recent works aim to stimulate positive change, initiate dialogue, generate awareness and appreciation of the importance of conservation.
Hamidi Hadi is regarded as one of the most prominent abstract artists of his generation in Malaysia. Industrial paints such as polyurethane, enamel paint and resin have been Hamidi’s choice of media, and his canvases radiate abstract yet poetic qualities and portray ethereal emotions. The artist’s inspiration is his love of, and passion for, painting. Sometimes the idea comes to him subconsciously in flashes of colours and visuals during his everyday life experiences: what he feels, sees, thinks, reads and collects is then researched and further developed.
With his open and exploratory approach to art, leading Malaysian printmaker Juhari Said continues to experiment with different techniques and materials to elevate the art of printmaking. He is constantly looking for meaning and purpose, trying to make sense of modern-life issues. He integrates the viewer in a critical discourse, questioning social and political concepts, and showing the possibility of ambiguity in life.
