Tim Sullivan- White Shadows
13 Sep 2014 - 19 Oct 2014
*This exhibition will be held at our second gallery, EDITIONS at Park House, 21 Orchard Blvd, Singapore.
EDITIONS by Collectors Contemporary is proud to present a new solo exhibition by contemporary San Francisco based artist Tim Sullivan.
In White Shadows, Sullivan continues to explore his long-held fascination with the west coast of America. Large-scale monochromatic oil paintings of Hollywood's blonde bombshells juxtaposed with colourful still-life photographs of flowers, Sullivan plays with notions of illusion and active looking by presenting his works as manipulated negative images.
Tim Sullivan is represented by Collectors Contemporary.
ALEXANDER LEE - The Botanist
16 Oct 2014 - 29 Nov 2014
Opening Reception: 16 October 2014 [7 - 9pm]
Exhibition runs until 29 November 2014
The opening reception and exhibition will be held at Collectors Contemporary.
Collectors Contemporary is proud to present THE BOTANIST: a new solo show by contemporary artist Alexander Lee.
Born in California to Hakka parents, Lee grew up in Tahiti, French Polynesia. He earned his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York; his MFA from Columbia University, New York; and an MPS from New York University. Lee worked as Studio Manager to Matthew Barney, before gaining recognition for his own unique practice. He is based in New York and Tahiti, and has exhibited to critical acclaim throughout Europe and the United States. The Botanist will bring the work of Alexander Lee to Singapore for the first time.
Lee draws on his rich cultural heritage to explore individual and collective narratives in a multimedia practice that includes drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and performance. A storyteller, Lee amalgamates personal memory, popular culture and history into a rich symbolic visual language. In The Botanist, Lee continues his investigation into cultural narratives, and issues of migration, colonialism and cultural hybridization. Through the plant motif of the breadfruit (uru), the artist conveys themes of sustenance, life, and transformation.
Leeís practice could not be more relevant to Singapore and a contemporary moment defined by globalisation and cultural hybridity. In the artistís work the breadfruit becomes symbolic of knowledge, learning, discovery, creativity and the international travel of ideas and cultural meaning.
