Since its opening in 2011, 3812 Gallery sees itself as a catalyst for the contemporary expression of the uniqueness of Eastern culture. In the last nine years, the gallery has evolved into an art enterprise owing to its diverse approach to the promotion of Chinese contemporary art, its close relationship with artists, scholars and collectors, and most importantly, the understanding that art development and heritage preservation take more than a few white walls in the age of globalisation.
3812 Gallery has published three issues of Collect since 2017, an art journal aiming to provide a captivating and informative channel to art appreciation, a continuation of profound discussions that often take place within gallery walls and less often outside of them.

We are delighted to present the renowned contemporary Chinese ink painter Wei Ligang's musings on Chloe Ho's contemporary ink works. Extracted from two essays, the first written in 2014 following Chloe's apprenticeship at Wei's studio in Beijing during the winter of 2013, and the second published in the 2017 exhibition catalogue Ascendence, Wei Ligang reflects on particular paintings by Chloe as well as on her painting style and presence.
