Fabien Verdier is currently exhibiting her huge ink paintings in her inaugural solo exhibition in SE Asia at the Art Plural Gallery.
She is the only French artist who has ever mastered traditional ink painting, dedicating almost a decade of her life in China for an apprenticeship with master calligraphers in the 1980’s.
Fabienne Verdier transcends borders, bridging Asian philosophy with Western minimal abstraction which she has later revisited. Paying homage to early Flemish masters of the 15th Century, she transcribes the essence of her being onto the canvas with bright flashes of colours.
This exhibition has been highly recommended to me by a friend. It is running only until 9th March. I am going to go on the 5th in the afternoon. I know that this is an awkward time for a lot of our members but I thought I would post it up so you can go to in your own time. The gallery is open 11am -7pm, Monday to Saturday.
