Made over two trips to China and Hong Kong in 2019, Francis Hamel’s exhibition is a deeply affectionate response to a country whose strange and beautiful landscapes gave the artist dramatic new perspectives for his art. Fusing the high, ethereal viewpoints of traditional Chinese landscapes with an ingrained Western eye for topography and light, the artist creates striking analogies between the towering mountains of Huangshan and the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and Shanghai, the enduring presence of the natural world even in the busiest cities. The exhibition includes work from Hong Kong, Yunnan, Guilin, Yangshuo, Shanghai, Wuyishan & Hangzhou.
