Victor Wong, Far Side of the Moon 0002, A.I. Ink on Paper, 89 x 62 cm, 2019
3812 Gallery is delighted to exhibit a selection of artworks by the next generation of Chinese contemporary ink artists, Chloe Ho and Victor Wong.
Following Chloe Ho’s critically acclaimed first London exhibition, Unconfined Illumination, held in autumn 2019 at 3812 Gallery London, we are incredibly proud to announce that the Ashmolean Museum and the New Hall Art Collection both acquired artworks for their permanent collections. To celebrate, we are exhibiting a collection of Ho’s lyrical and captivating ink paintings which have never before been shown in the London Gallery. This exhibition also presents a selection of Victor Wong’s artificial intelligence ink paintings, a collaboration between the artist and his A.I. partner, Gemini. The robot that Wong has programmed uses the ancient medium of Shui Mo (water and ink) to paint the unique landscapes of the unexplored dark side of the Moon, thus heading into uncharted artistic territory and prompting a wider discussion on A.I. artworks and the definition of art.
“More than Ink” was first conceived by Calvin Hui, Co-founder and Artistic Director of 3812 Gallery, in 2018 as part of the inauguration of Ink Now, the multi-faceted platform presenting the development of contemporary ink with the slogan “More than Art Fair, More than Ink”. Since 2011, 3812 Gallery has been committed to promoting Chinese contemporary art with a focus on ink. With the expansion from Hong Kong to London’s St. James’s district, 3812 Gallery is raising the global awareness of Chinese ink art and initiating academic exchange on an international level.
‘At the beginning of 2020, we aim to foster the dialogues and discussion over the future development of ink art through More than Ink, and to continually explore the boundaries of ink art throughout the year.’ Hui suggested.
