Determination.Freedom – Collision No.3 by Ren Sihong, Oil on canvas, 120.5 x 220.4cm, 2019.

The gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Ren Sihong, one of the most prominent Chinese artists who were born in the 1960s and have flourished since the late 1980s, significantly shaping China’s contemporary art history. The exhibition showcases the artist’s works created in the last three years, the ‘Black and White’ series which started in 2017, ‘Value of Colors’, started in 2018, and ‘Spirit of Flowers’, started early this year during the pandemic period. Stepping away from his previous style, Ren has adopted an expressionist and abstract way of painting his recent works and hopes to enlighten the viewers through this intriguing energy.

Founded in the heart of Tokyo in 1967, Whitestone Gallery has been one of a small number of pioneering galleries in Japan. Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong is the first overseas operation of the gallery. With an extensive survey on East Asian post-war period artists and art movements, the gallery hopes to create a new dialogue between contemporary and modern art in Asia, and add more diversity to the multicultural art scene in Hong Kong.
