About the Fair

TEFAF Maastricht 2017 Stand533
MECC Maastricht, Forum 100, 6229 GV Maastricht, the Netherlands
In line with the Galleries’ mission of encouraging dialogue between art and artists from Asia and beyond Asia, the stand will feature a selection of work from three artists who have been chosen for their significance in art and its unwritten art history: Robert Motherwell (b. 1915, Washington, USA –d. 1991, Massachusetts, USA), Su Xiaobai (b. 1949, Wuhan, China), and Zhu Jinshi (b. 1954, Beijing, China). By placing the works of Su, and Zhu alongside those of Motherwell, the Galleries aims to further discussion on the differences and similarities between Chinese and Western understanding of the development of art.
These artists represent some of the disparate and varied international origins of abstract art. Believing in the importance of the experimentation and exploration of various modes of meditative and automatic art-making, Motherwell, Su, and Zhu are brought together by an unconscious engagement of similar processes in the production of art.
