ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD
Galerie Koo, Hong Kong 2-25 May, 2019
Originally, gold is a rare, precious, divine material, reserved for worship and emblem of wealth. These qualities have continued, even though gold has become a tool for consumption. This exhibition presents a series of paintings where the subtle intervention of gold suggests a simple question: does gold sublimate painting? In other words, does it retain its original meaning by elevating the work from noble to pure, or does it act as a mere ornament of improvement?
