Christi Tasker’s Best of Art Basel Hong Kong 2023

For those of you who have followed me for a while, you know I love art! And the best part is – I curate art for clients, hospitality, and other marketing projects.

In the process, I am often inspired to paint or create art myself. Please visit my art shop to see the art that I have available. Here is all available Art, and this link contains only Christi Tasker Original Artwork and my mom, Pamela Reeves Original Artwork.

Description

Questioning social norms and relationships and developing an approach to one’s own identity and sexuality are at the center of Scheirl’s life art. In her*his works, the intertwining of biography and art, the question of one’s own identity, and crossing boundaries of gender and genre are options.

The artist, who achieved international fame in the late 1980s for her*his experimental film and video works, recently made highly regarded contributions to the documenta 14 in Kassel and Athens and the Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale. Together with Jakob Lena Knebl she*he represented the Austrian Pavilion at the 2022 Venice Biennale

Zhu Jinshi

Description

Zhu Jinshi is a pioneer of Chinese abstract art and installation art. Though abstract, Zhu’s work is rooted in metaphor. Experience—fleeting and internal—is embodied in the inert substance to which it is committed and in which it finds an imaginative and deeply expressive equivalent.

Several of Zhu’s signature abstract thick paintings will be on view, including Who Is Guan Yunchang. This work is the key piece among all 2 x 2 metre works. The series takes the classical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms as a hidden background to construct an abstract multi-dimensional space.

Description

Since 2008, Pascale Marthine Tayou has used chalkboards or chalk sticks in his works. For the artist, it is about objects with a symbolic value related to the formation. An education that should direct us and guide us in our destiny. Sometimes the notions learned can paralyze us and prevent us from choosing other ways. Rather than using chalk sticks to write “Knowledge”, as it happens at school, Pascale Marthine Tayou uses this material to assemble potential “knowledge”. He, therefore, uses the chalk stick as a constructive element of the work, aware that there is not only a written message but a multitude of encounters and possibilities. The artwork is made up of multicolored chalks glued together so as to compose a sort of tapestry. The pattern incidentally recalls certain West African tapestries, including the color range. Without a doubt, a composition style inspired by tradition, but also a piece of art made up of objects which usually serve to draw one. Chalk permits ephemeral marking; it is also an educational tool. The true richness here is not so much the painting as the symbol it is bringing up: education and school.

Pauline Show

Float 2023
Description

Shaw is a multidisciplinary artist recognized for her large-scale felted tapestries that catechize how identity, memory, and territory are cultivated and tended. To reconcile fragments of her memory with the erasure of traditions Shaw has experienced as a first-generation Taiwanese American, she investigates her cultural inheritance, familial influences, and personal history against the backdrop of centuries-old artistic traditions passed down through generations.

Informed by global genealogies of craft, Shaw employs wet and needle felting techniques that combine hand-dyed wool with silk, bamboo, and viscose to create abstracted tapestries with meticulous detail.

Drawing from scientific, cultural, and natural histories, she layers her compositions with representational elements such as snakes, birds, and flowers amongst patterned backgrounds. These elements carry mythologies and symbolic meaning, as they are borrowed from paper cutouts found in Chinese folk art and ancient Chinese textiles currently housed in various institutional collections across the United States. In turn, the seemingly arbitrary backgrounds are sourced from a modern form of memory capture — MRI brain scans.

By braiding the expansive corpus of ancient Chinese mythology and decorative arts with science and the limits of the body, Shaw suggests strengthening the fragility of diasporic narratives and the instabilities of identity. In doing so, Shaw offers anchor points for her own identity and that of her culture so that it can be further clarified and defined.

Peng Yu彭 于

Long-lasting Leisure, 1990

Yu Peng was born along Taipei’s Waishuang Creek, Taiwan, in 1955 and passed away in Taipei in 2014. Compared to the people who suffered from separation and displacement in the earlier era, whom Pai Hsien-Yung depicted in his novel Taipei People, Yu grew up in the comparatively more stable post-war era.

Yu’s lifelong art career could be divided into three stages: the early stage from 1980 to 1997, the middle stage from 1998 to 2004, and the late stage from 2004 to 2014. Yu created mostly drawings and watercolor works in the early stage.

Besides stylistic influences from Chen Yi-Keng, Yu was also inspired by both Taiwanese and overseas artists that he had read about in magazines such as The Lion Art Monthly and Artist. During the middle stage, he was invited by Cheng Tsai-Tung in 1997 to stay in Shanghai for three years. In addition to first-hand experience of the glamorous Shanghai, Yu also traveled through different parts of China, which inspired the depth and diverse features seen in his ink landscapes and paintings of people.

Landscapes of Desire: Figure Series is an iconic series from this stage in Yu’s career. Yu began to suffer from medical conditions in 2005 until he passed away in 2014, he frequently traveled between China and Taiwan to partake in many art projects and exhibitions.

Yu was well known for his ink paintings; however, his earlier sketches and pastel drawings also offered great insights into his masterful ink creations. These earlier works reveal how he had successfully transformed the lines and strokes from Western drawings into exciting ink expressions created later in his career. Yu’s oil paintings, prints, calligraphies, and hand-painted ceramic artworks are also innovative and unique.

Philip Taaffe

Mosiac 2022
Description

Philip Taaffe was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1955 and studied at the Cooper Union in New York. His first solo exhibition was in New York in 1982. Taaffe has traveled widely in the Middle East, India, South America, and Morocco. He also lived and worked in Naples from 1988-91. He has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the Carnegie International, two Sydney Biennials, and three Whitney Biennials.

Taaffe’s work is in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid.

In 2000, the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern organized a retrospective of Taaffe’s work, and in 2004, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in San Marino, Italy presented Carte annuvolate (Cloud Papers), a survey of paintings and drawings based on the artist’s explorations with floating pigments and the paper marbling process.

In 2008, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg organized a major retrospective of Taaffe’s work entitled The Life of Forms in Art: Paintings 1980-2008, which a publication by Hatje Cantz accompanied.

In 2011, the Irish Museum of Modern Art presented Anima Mundi, a survey of thirty paintings from 2000-2010. Some of Taaffe’s most recent solo exhibitions were at Luhring Augustine in 2013 (Chelsea) and 2015 (Bushwick).

In 2018, Lund Humphries published a monograph on Taaffe that examines his entire career over the past four decades. Philip Taaffe presently works and lives in West Cornwall, Connecticut.

Sonia Boyce

On My Way: Rave in the Park, 2022 – 2022

Description

On My Way: Rave in the Park belongs to Sonia Boyce’s Devotional project, which has collaborated with the public to gather the names and memorabilia of black British women in music since 1999.

While journeying across towns and cities, Boyce often takes street photographs of fly-posters advertising concerts, music festivals, and album releases of performers who make up the Devotional collection. In the public realm, this form of itinerant and unauthorized messaging – what some might call wild posting – lays claim to the ubiquitous presence of these popular performers in our everyday lives.

As part of Jordan Wolfson’s presentation at Art Basel Hong Kong, the artist will debut new wall-mounted plywood and aluminum panel works featuring images related to pop and vernacular culture, some of which Wolfson generated with advanced AI technologies.

As with his pioneering incorporation of animatronics, VR, and holographic displays into his works, Wolfson’s use of AI image generators represents another cutting-edge technology he has transformed into a tool for exploring the complex tensions that arise in contemporary society today. In addition, the gallery will present Red Sculpture, a new work that further engages with the formal and conceptual ideas of his past sculptural works.

The gallery will also present significant work by gallery artists, including Ruth Asawa, Katherine Bernhardt, Marlene Dumas, Marcel Dzama, Yayoi Kusama, Oscar Murillo, Sigmar Polke, Bridget Riley, Thomas Ruff, Dana Schutz, Josh Smith, Al Taylor, Luc Tuymans, among others.
