It is the most joyous time of the year again! To celebrate Christmas, a time when the air is filled with festivity and everyone is busy wishing their loved ones happiness, State-of-the-Arts Gallery would like to wish you a merry Christmas by presenting our Winter Special Exhibition – Colours of Love – by renowned Turkish artist Coplu. This new series of work draws upon love and romance with images of hearts in the paintings, through the paintings, the artist expresses his hope and dream for humankind and a bright future.

It is not hard for beholders to spot the certain symbols that reoccur in Coplu’s work; they reflect the cultural and artistic choices that have been made by the artist in a process of selection over the passage of time. In his paintings, clouds represent dreams, hearts stand for love, and balloons equal freedom. These symbols and his style have become so recognizable across the globe that he would not even need a signature on his canvas. Colours of Love is the artist’s latest creation that features a rainbow heart in each of the paintings. His rainbow hearts shine in the night-time setting of his paintings, calmingly floating on the sea, the land and in the sky. Coplu believes nature is a kind of art that has the capacity to take away human’s negativity and give back love in return.

Just like the beautiful rainbow that appears after the gloomy rain, human hearts could be soothed with love after the sorrow and adversity one has to encounter in life. Coplu’s paintings represent the hopes and dreams that we, human, can find our inner peace and the capacity to love and be loved in a world that is made of ups and downs.

Since his first exhibition in 1984, Coplu has become a well-loved and widely collected artist, exhibiting throughout Europe, North America and Asia. With his use of bright colors and thick patches of acrylic paint, the artist invites beholders to emerge in the peaceful and cheerful space he creates on the canvas during Christmas.

《心•虹》

土耳其當代藝術家Coplu個人畫展

為慶祝聖誕節及新一年的來臨,State-of-the-Arts畫廊將透過溫馨赤子情的藝術向大家傳遞祝賀的訊息和願望。在這個普天同慶的日子,讓我們一同欣賞畫廊和海港城•美術館聯手為大家呈獻的跨年畫展「心•虹」。屆時將會展出土耳其藝術家Coplu的全新作品。畫作溫馨浪漫,畫布上滿是色彩和美麗的心形圖案,代表了畫家對世界和未來的展望和夢想。

Coplu的作品包含著豐富的象徵意義。畫家經過多年時間洗禮,Coplu於其藝術創作旅程中選擇了以雲、心和氣球等事物作為主角,讓它們重複出現於畫布上。在Coplu的藝術世界裡,浮雲代表夢想,心形象徵愛,氣球則盛載著自由。這些圖案成為Coplu獨特的個人風格,不但為作品注入其獨特個性,更讓他在全球各地廣受歡迎。心•虹是Coplu所創作的最新系列,每幅作品中的彩虹色的心,在靜夜的時刻中照亮世界,安然地飄於海上、地面和天空中。Coplu深信大自然也是藝術的一種,能舒緩人類的不安,同時給予我們愛。Coplu的畫作盛載著他的希望,使人們能於充滿起跌的世界中找到內心的平靜,尋回我們愛人與被愛的本能。

Coplu於1984年開始首次個人展覽,隨後作品被世界各地廣泛收藏和熱愛,曾於歐洲,北美和亞洲展出。他這次透過鮮明色彩和豐富質感,在「海港城•美術館」將為大家獻上一個歡欣和溫馨的聖誕節。

開幕酒會將於2011年12月21日(星期三)於海港城舉行。畫家Coplu亦將出席。歡迎電郵elizabeth@sotagallery.com.hk查詢。
