Contemporary Masters from Britain opens at the Yantai Art Museum in China today. There was a symposium and official opening ceremony for lecturers and contemporary painters from across China followed by a Private View which was attended by hundreds of people.
I think this is a great start to the 4 museum show across China which Robert Priseman has curated and co-ordinated; his vision and commitment to painting is amazing – thanks Robert for including my painting in this exciting venture.
Between the 7th July 2017 and 10th January 2018, 80 works of art drawn from the Priseman Seabrook Collection will go on display in 4 Chinese art museums for the very first time. The Priseman Seabrook Collection is an official collection partner of Art UK
The host institutions are the Yantai Art Museum, Yantai, Artall Gallery, Nanjing, Jiangsu Art Gallery, Nanjing and the Tianjin Academy of Fine Art, Tianji
…what is compelling about painting, is what is out of the control, what is beyond intention: the sensuous, viscous quality of paint.”
