13 January – 8 February 2022
Whitestone Gallery H Queen’s
(31 December 2022, Hong Kong) Whitestone Gallery H Queen’s is delighted to present “Intermixture Vol.3”, a sequel to Intermixture and Intermixture Vol.2 in 2017 and 2021 respectively. Featured in the exhibition are artists Katsuyoshi Inokuma, Ahhi Choi and Masayuki Tsubota. Intermixture Vol. 3 continues to demonstrate the ideas and concepts of the previous Intermixture exhibitions; these four artists are letting materials and textures, colors and forms work together to create unprecedented expressions, and blurring the boundaries between paintings and sculptures.

Ahhi Choi(Japan, b. 1983)
Ahhi Choi was born in Hyogo Prefecture Japan in 1983. The curvilinear movement in the work of Choi is both buoyant and ecstatic, expressing the innate sense of adventure the artist possesses. He was recognized after exhibiting in New York in 2014 and has since exhibited internationally including France, Italy, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Choi’s work can be perceived as a reflection of his subconscious mind. Upon graduation in Los Angeles, he travelled through the United States. During his trip, Choi explored the expansive network of National Parks, from Death Valley to the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone. It was during this stateside excursion that the artist developed an intimate bond with the grandeur and majesty of nature. In addition to painting, the artist has extensively engaged in other artistic creations, including design of shoes, fabrics, wine labels, cell phone cases, CD covers, etc.

Masayuki Tsubota (Japan, b.1976)
After receiving his B.A. and B.F.A. from the Osaka University of Arts in 2001, Masayuki Tsubota (1976-) created a series of sculptures with wood and aluminum, he delicately shaves and polishes the medium with vibrant colors to create a unifying effect. These underlying connotations are what give his sculptures numerous dimensions. The abstract textures and patterns in his work urge the viewers to reflect on themselves, in order to re-experience seemingly familiar visuals, “déjà vu” in a different way. Tsubota believes colors always exist around us in a trans-phenomenal way, they penetrate our dreams, affecting our consciousness and unconsciousness. In this fast-paced informative era, we often eliminate the needs for colors; perhaps we left something important without noticing it.

Katsuyoshi Inokuma (Japan, b. 1951)
Inokuma continued to pursue his artistic creativity in his hometown after studying at the art colleges. Although he only became an artist after his 40’s, Inokuma soon won the Aoki Shigeru Memorial Award in 1996 and semi-grand prize at Fukushima Prefectural Art Exhibition in 1998. Creating textures by using coffee powder and sanding down the surface, he brings the exquisite concurrence of comfort and sharpness into his work. Above all, Inokuma’s ultramarine blue works, “Inokuma Blue Series” is highly admired both domestically and internationally and cause strong resonance with its viewers.
