From 8 February to 23 March, 2019—
Abstraction in Asia
From 1960 to Nowadays - China, Korea, Japan
Formerly located in the Drouot district, Sabine Vazieux has just opened a new space at 5bis rue du Louvre, in the center of Paris and close to the future Pinault Foundation.
On the occasion of its opening, the gallery will present an inaugural exhibition of Chinese, Japanese and Korean abstract artists, in which Vazieux specialises.
Paintings from 1960 to nowadays by various Asian artists will be exhibited. These artists share a close connection with nature while taking abstraction as a means to sublime it and give it an essence.
Despite originally coming from different countries, these artists do not only share this connection with nature, but also have in common Buddhist philosophy, as well as ties to their pictorial traditions, that allow them to create an original oriental abstraction, which has its own identity.
These artists, some considered as pioneers of abstraction in Asia, were rediscovered by Sabine Vazieux through her travels and research. They are mostly exhibited exclusively in her gallery while it is certainly an original idea and a rare opportunity to see them united in one exhibition.
