This exhibition presents paintings, sculptures, photography, and installation works featuring Japanese-born artist Hiroshi Senju, Iranian artist Golnaz Fathi, Mexican artist Ricardo Mazal, Indian-born artist Sohan Qadri, and more.
Hiroshi Senju is a Nihonga painter known for his large scale waterfall paintings, using traditional Japanese painting techniques employing pigments derived from natural materials and applying them to a specially designed mulberry paper. He was born in 1958 in Suginami, Tokyo, Japan. He received MFA from Tokyo University of the Arts. He received Honourable Mention Award at the Venice Biennale in 1995.
Golnaz Fathi is an Iranian contemporary artist who lives and works in Tehran and Paris. She was born in 1972 in Tehran and studied graphic design at Islamic Azad University, receiving a BA in 1995. She has developed her own abstract style derived from the practice of traditional calligraphy.
Born in 1950 in Mexico City, Ricardo Mazal lives and works in Santa Fe and New York City. He pursues ‘the spiritual in art’, through projects like “A Trilogy of Burials” (2009-10), a series incorporating abstract paintings, digital photographs, and multimedia images that reflect on the issue of mortality as addressed by different cultures.
Sohan Quadric was a yogi, poet, and painter from India who lived in Copenhagen. He was born in 1932 in Punjab, India. His paintings resulted from deep meditation and reflected the culture of India through luminous, dye-infused works.
The group show is being presented through January 22, 2018 at Sundaram Tagore, Singapore.
