Art Central – Art Central Hong Kong

I was a little disappointed in this one, this year, as many of the exhibits were exactly the same as last year’s. It was nice to see some things again, such as Kate MccGwire’s feather sculptures, but I had been hoping for something new. As always in HK, it began with bling: a moving sculpture made of crystal, commissioned by Svarowski. It was much photographed.

The artist I cam across for the first time was Marc Quinn, and I was really interested in what kind of printmaking techniques he used. I liked his embossed works “The Frozen Wave”, and the combination of embossing with ink layers.

I was particularly interested in his photographic prints of raw meat, and wondered about trying to produce something in this style using photopolymer.
