Seek­ing In­ner Peace: Works in Ink by Xu Jing­wen and An­gel Hui

Chi­nese artists Xu Jing­wen and An­gel Hui’s works aim to cap­ture a sense of spir­i­tu­al­ity. Xu de­picts the spir­i­tual side of hu­mankind in his Plain Land­scape se­ries, im­mers­ing his au­di­ence in his large-scale cre­ations. Hui finds new ways to cel­e­brate tra­di­tion by comb­ing age-old con­cepts with the in­flu­ences of the present in the form of ready-made or dis­pos­able mod­ern ob­jects. Through Mar 8. Karin We­ber Gallery, G/F, 20 Aberdeen St., Cen­tral, 2544-5004. kar­in­we­ber­gallery.com.
