Spotting the Trend of Abstract Art in Asia at Art Stage Singapore
From the sculpted folds of burlap in Japanese Gutai artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa’s Work 130931 (1963), to the smooth, lacquered finish of Su Xiaobai’s Peaceful Skyblue (2014), this selection of artworks demonstrates the deep engagement artists across Asia have had with the theme of abstraction. Whether as an exercise in transforming traditional mediums, or as a reaction against representational conventions, these artists challenge the norm and break away from the often Western-centric, linear art historical narrative of abstraction.
