Keith Macgregor, The Way We Were, pop-up at Usagi

The Way We Were is a photographic journey down memory lane through the vast collection of work by the iconic Keith Macgregor that throws you back to Hong Kong during its prime: namely the 70s and 80’s.

The exhibition bursts with nostalgic street scenes steeped in colonial and local culture, city panoramas and images of life on the sea in full colour and black & white.

Importantly, this also marks the first exhibition showing a selection of Macgregor’s latest series titled ‘Neon Fantasies’; a passion project where the artist imagines a reverse reality where the city multiplies in illuminated neon signs.

The Way We Were expresses a city abound in colour, diversity and optimism, a documentation and flashback to a time where the ‘Hong Kong Dream’ was forged and people went ‘all in’ on the game of life.

Jun

to Jul 1

'Philosopher's Tree' by Michael Kenna

Michael Kenna is one of today’s most important and influential black & white landscape photographers. This exhibition, curated by Blue Lotus Gallery, focuses on a subject most dear to Kenna: trees. Good trees grow slowly, and those with strong resilience situated in good conditions can live for thousands of years. Each tree has its own story to tell. The viewing pleasure of Kenna’s work is likewise connected to a change of pace, close focusing, and a meditation of sorts. One cannot help but wonder, if these trees could talk, what would they tell us? 

This exhibition is curated by Blue Lotus Gallery as a pop-up at Usagi gallery off Hollywood Road,

Blue Lotus artists Michael Wolf and Tugo Cheng were invited to show work at Cheung Chau Wave Art and Culture Festival 2017. 

Using a map which directs visitors to each site dotted around the island, one can explore various forms of art; photography street performance, video, painting, sculpture and music, all negotiating the theme of life by water.  The range stretches from island & water ecology to fishing culture including human birth.

Blue Lotus Gallery is proud to announce the collaboration of two of our artists:

Michael Wolf will show for the first time his brand new series of work: 'Fish'.
Wolf is well known for exploring Hong Kong's identity through various projects mainly exploring its urban culture and cityscapes. This time Wolf turns his attention to objects that are quintessential to Hong Kong's food culture: dried fish. Each specimen is displayed in oversized prints floating in mid-air accentuating its translucent nature while revealing its smallest details.

Tugo Cheng very appropriately will show his award winning 'Coastal Geometries' series documenting fishing culture in Fujian. The unique forms and geometries turn the seascape into an array of minimalist compositions of abstract lines and shapes.

Blue Lotus Gallery is excited to announce a solo exhibition '' The Glass Facade'' by Lee Du Ploy. 

+++

The new year marks a new beginning so we set our new year’s resolutions: we hope to be thinner, make lots of money and enjoy our lives as best as we can. Basically we are looking for happiness but unfortunately this quest can be challenging at times.

Mental illness can be caused by genetic heritage or the wrong chemistry in the brain. But often it is thrown upon us as a reaction to deep trauma and pure tragedy. Bad things happen. We can't protect ourselves from the hardship that life intends to dump on us. And we all react very differently. This is what intrigues Lee do Ploy the most. Through his paintings of portraits we meet some exceptional troubled human beings and we learn an invaluable lesson: that however different we make assume ourselves to be, we are remarkably alike.

Since his arrival in 1995, Hong Kong never stopped to fascinate photographer Michael Wolf.

For over twenty years Michael Wolf has captured the hyper-density of the city of Hong Kong through his large-scale photographs of its high-rise architecture (‘architecture of density’).

With his latest body of work, Wolf zooms into the beehive like structures and explores it’s less glamorous counter part; the back alleys. The back alleys, originally referred to as ‘scavenger lanes’, are not what would appeal to most urban dwellers. At best, one might rush through it, merely as a shortcut, trying to avoid the pungent smell of waste, while turning a blind eye to rats scurrying away.   However these dark narrow lanes host a vast variety objects and activities as we learn through Wolf’s photography.
