My Highlights From Art Basel in Hong Kong
I've always been attracted to pieces that incorporate light—sometimes actual light by electricity, sometimes the perception of light. I'm captivated by light, not only because it draws the attention of our eyes, but because on the one hand light represents hope and future, and on the other hand cannot exist without darkness, the unknown, fear, or as one of the pieces puts its so bluntly, temptation.
Collecting art for me is simply collecting things that I love. Its not about the value, or the future worth. One has to chose pieces that would give long last attraction between the art and the person. It could be the most complex, busy piece, or the most simple plain one—as long as the piece evokes something from within.
With that said, here are my highlights:Takeo Hanazawa, Study for the Temptation of St. Anthony, 2012 - Gallery Side 2
Mehmet Ali Uysal, Untitled Suspended Series, 2004-2013 - Pi ARTWORKS
