|Opera Gallery presents French painter André Brasilier: On Idle Shores|
Opera Gallery will present the first major solo exhibition of celebrated French painter André Brasilier. On Idle Shores illustrates the artist’s most notable themes as a wanderer and observer of life’s subtle simplicities.
The show will take place from 7 to 31 May as part of this year’s Le French May — one of the largest cultural events in Asia celebrating French heritage and organised by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau.
André Brasilier’s life on canvas has spanned over 60 years. His career began in the 1950s at the École des BeauxArts and has since included major retrospective exhibitions in France, Japan, and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. With a prolific oeuvre and a style eluding classification, Brasilier is among France’s most important and distinguished living contemporary artists. With their quintessentially romantic backgrounds, Brasilier’s paintings reflect the contemplative selfawareness that renders his work universally accessible and fundamentally humanist.
This exhibition marks the third and final destination for the artist’s touring exhibition with Opera Gallery, which has taken place over the course of three months in three gallery locations: Seoul (March 2015), Dubai (April 2015) and now Hong Kong.Please login or register to see the full article
