About This Exhibition

Sundaram Tagore Gallery in hong kong is pleased to present works by its Asian artists in an exhibition entitled: In Your Mind's Eye. The exhibition opens with a cocktail reception on Thursday, October 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and runs through November 8. The show includes works from seven of the gallery's most influential Asian artists.

Gallerist Sundaram Tagore said, "We are excited to present works that are very unique – they are from our Asian artists, representing Korea, Japan, India, and Uzbekistan. Seen together, they weave a very dynamic dialogue and address issues of east and west."

Tagore added that, "The works have powerful aesthetics but most importantly all the artists have roots deep in Eastern culture. The works are compelling because Asia's culture is enormously diverse and influential, particularly at this time in history."

Korean painter Hosook Kang uses dense images of flying cranes, referencing redemption, which is a significant theme that runs through Korean and Japanese symbology. Hiroshi Senju's work referencing water is powerful and evocative. Nathan Slate Joseph's work on galvanized steel references materials found in urban centers in Asia.

The exhibition is especially exciting, as the gallery just launched its third location in Hong Kong in May, and thus has a special resonance. "To exhibit the work of artists of Asian origins is exciting because that region isproducing some of the most interesting work right now. Artists with roots there are a part of a special time in the contemporary art scene right now."

A complete list of the artists includes: Natvar Bhavsar, Nathan Slate Joseph, Hosook Kang, Sohan Qadri, Anil Revri, Hiroshi Senju and Robert Masao Yasuda.

City Reviews: In your Mind's Eye; Sundaram Tagore Gallery October 28, 2008

"...Less-colour-saturated but no less intuitive are the pieces by Natvar Bhavsar, who sprinkles pigment delicately on his canvases in an echo of Jackson Pollock, although the works' understated quality reflects a gentle Asian sensibility that's the opposite of the American painter's frenetic, ego-driven style..."
