iPRECIATION is proud to present a solo exhibition by Han Sai Por 韩少芙, titled Dance with the Wind「隨風起舞」. This exhibition will feature Han’s latest series of acrylic paintings and sculptures.Inspired by the natural cycle of life, her artworks depict the elegant beauty of nature and embody the philosophical thought of how ‘nature works in mysterious ways’. All of her paintings predominantly consist of bold black and white strokes of acrylic paint, with a few works containing other colours like dark blue and red. Han’s decision to dominate most of her canvas paintings with a black and white colour scheme allows her to create a dynamic visual perception of nature in both its abstract and solid form. The sculptures, meticulously carved out of Han white marble stone slabs （漢白玉）and stainless steel, are shaped according to the flora and fauna present in our everyday lives. Every detail, from the smooth edge to the curves and lines present in each of her sculptures, reflects the sheer amount of time, labour and effort Han had invested in perfecting them. Han’s minimalistic approach in her artworks translates the profoundness behind her artistic thought when she was in the process of developing her paintings and sculptures. The gallery space, thus, becomes a temporal space for audiences to immerse, interact and appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of nature brought by Han Sai Por’s artworks.
