3812 London Gallery

3812 Gallery is delighted to announce that its annual exhibition Mind-Scape, now in its fifth edition, debuts at 3812 London from 21 June – 17 August 2019. Since its first show in 2013, Mind-Scape is a series of exhibitions with an astute perspective of academic history. With the official opening of 3812 London Gallery last year, Mind-Scape also marks its debut in the new gallery space. There are works from eight artists in this exhibition which demonstrate a huge diversity of style and contemporary approach. Using a range of disciplines from Chinese ink and coffee on paper to acrylic and oil on canvas, the artists who make up Mind-Scape V are: Sophie CHANG, Chloe HO, LI Lei, LIU Guofu, QU Leilei, WANG Huangsheng, WANG Jieyin and XUE Song.

“What is in the painting reflects what is in the heart. The heart is our awareness that embodies all the knowledge and emotions in both our subconscious and conscious mind. The heart and the paintings are hand in glove, where the heart is the source of the paintings which in turn is the materialisation of the heart. Safekeeping the heart, the paintings are waiting to be unlocked and discovered.”— Li Lei

Notably, through the modernisation of China and the constant engagement between the East and West over the last century, the definition of “Eastern” is eschewing the unilateral insider-outsider division. It embraces the truths of Universalism, epitomising the Eastern values and spirituality which manifest in the interplay between social, cultural and artistic spheres. Calvin Hui, Co-founder and Artistic Director of 3812 Gallery said: ‘The exhibition reflects 3812’s dedication to fostering cultural understanding of Chinese contemporary art with “Eastern Origin and Contemporary Expression”. Hosting Mind-Scape V at 3812’s London Gallery marks a significant moment in the gallery’s life: it is the gallery’s effort to bring ink art and its development under the spotlight of globalization, building on previous intellectual subjects while assessing and affirming the core values and aesthetic acumen of 3812 Gallery. In the meanwhile, we present our full and diverse offering and the stable of talent to London’s contemporary art scene as well as bringing in Eastern culture.’ He also said, ‘Mind-Scape brings together a group of artists who not only have expanded the horizon of contemporary Chinese art practice, but also developed their unique and universal language in understanding the “mind” of ancient wisdoms and “art” as self-expression. Their works are both forward-looking and grounded in Chinese traditions, planting the seeds for the development of Chinese art in a global context.’
