máo lì zĭ: Solo Exhibition
PARKVIEW ART Hong Kong is proud to present máo lì zǐ – Solo Exhibition. The exhibition will feature Chinese artist Mao Lizi’s series of abstract works from 1980 – 2017.
Out of all the Chinese abstract painters, artist Mao Lizi can be said as one of the first that truly embodied what it means to create abstract paintings as a Chinese artist. However, he was not always an abstract painter. As one of the founding members of the Stars Group that emerged right after the end of the Cultural Revolution, he and his peers were set to change the perspective of the Chinese people. As a country that was still living in the traumatic experiences that were caused by the political pressures of that time, the artists of Stars Group championed individuality and freedom of speech.
Mao Lizi’s style has changed dramatically over the years, from his previous hyper-realistic paintings to the now abstract splashes of color. Mao Lizi’s career seems to have gone from one extreme to the other. However, one thing that did not change was his constant urge to break his own boundaries, he was able to abandon old paths in order to face new challenges. And for that, Mao Lizi is a Chinese master of abstraction.

Preludes: Gloria Wong solo exhibition
PARKVIEW ART Hong Kong is proud to present Hong Kong artist Gloria Wong’s second solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Preludes, the exhibition will present 33+1 new works from the artist.
Gloria fixated herself on a deceptively simple subject, one that is difficult to capture without an acute sensitivity. Any measure of success can only be achieved through a unique dialogue with the subject, a relationship that has been developed lovingly and gradually over a significant period of time. In this way, Gloria’s flowers in her first solo show revealed themselves in all their poetic beauty. They were not conventional flowers, but flowers stripped of any kind of easy rhetoric; their beauty shown through their absolute being, be it their decadence of bloom, fragility of decay, the starkness of their loneliness. In other words, these were flowers in their essence; their souls revealed to all who looked at her work.
In this new series, Gloria now presents us with something more subtle, in many ways even more vague and inscrutable. A visionary artist walking courageously along the winding abstract path created by nature itself. Gloria says she avoids using her rational brain in the creative process. She allows her third eye to reign and run free, as the final arbiter of choice and decision-making… In this way Gloria’s art emanates from the source of her artistic vision without obstruction or compromise.
Opening: 9 February 2017 from 18.30 to 21.30
10 February 2017 - 11 March 2017

GUTAI: The Eternal Avant-garde
The Gutai group, officially known as Gutai Bijutsu Kyokai, is the first radical, post-war artistic group in Japan.
With the aim to go beyond abstraction and pursue enthusiastically the possibilities of pure creativity, they emphasized that Gutai art does not alter matter but rather speaks of the delicate interaction between spirit and matter that ultimately enables art to tell a story. The group was founded in 1954 and lasted till 1972
PARKVIEW ART Hong Kong will be showcasing a number of Gutai artists including founder Jiro Yoshihara, members Shozo Shimamoto, Kazuo Shiraga, Sadamasa Motonaga, Atsuko Tanaka, Saburo Murakami, and lesser known members such as Yasuo Sumi, Yozo Ukita, and Norio Imai. The selection of works will attempt to show each individual artist’s essence in their creativity and expression.
John Franzen: Each Line One Breath
PARKVIEW ART Hong Kong is pleased to present German artist John Franzen’s debut show in Asia, Each Line One Breath.
Starting with a single straight line, each subsequent line seeks to imitate its predecessor. The pattern that evolves is unique to each piece just as each breath, and therefore each line, will vary slightly. Depending on the artist’s constitution, each work obtains an individual motion, which distinguishes it from the others. Concentration and the repetitive act of inhaling and exhaling between each line allows the whole to evolve naturally into logarithmic-like patterns and layers.
Franzen’s works explores issues regarding the human spiritual nature and origin. The line being the fundamental component of a drawing and the breath is the life giving force for a human being. Franzen tries to remove all superfluous things and leave behind only the most fundamental existential components of the drawing and the drawer.
During Franzen’s stay in Hong Kong, he will complete a new work in the gallery.
ONLY NOW: Gloria Wong solo exhibition
PARKVIEW ART Hong Kong is pleased to present Hong Kong artist Gloria Wong in her debut solo exhibition Only Now.
Gloria’s body of work represents beauty in its simplest, purest form. For her, the strength and beauty of flowers are best conveyed through black and white images, resulting in minimalist compositions that are reminiscent of Chinese ink paintings.
Through all the stages of its life cycle, Gloria’s keen eye captures the very essence of a flower from growth through decay using only an iPhone in her kitchen, illuminating her subjects simply with natural light – her instincts and aesthetic are simple yet powerful.
As much a creative process as it is meditative, taking photos of flowers is part of Gloria’s morning ritual, one that allows her to find peace in a bustling urban life. Yet it also represents something else to her. She notes: “Flowers are like a woman living through her many beautiful stages of life.” To Gloria, her work is as much an ode to beauty and nature as it is to herself.

Fernandez Arman, the main practitioner of Nouveau Realisme (New Realism) possessed a distinctive style. He had the courage and aesthetic vision to give artistic dignity to everyday objects, pushing the boundaries of art by utilizing debris and organic waste as medium. Alongside Arman, the exhibition also include works by Daniel Spoerri and Jacques Mahè de la Villeglé, who are part of the Nouveau Realisme movement. Bernard Aubertin will also be featured, as he conducted his own artistic research, thanks to the influence of one of the founding members of Nouveau Realisme, Yves Klein.
The four artists are witnesses of the complex and fascinating era of 1960s, which gave rise to their special artistic expressions.
