Art Projects Gallery is delighted to present “Sublime Landscapes” by Ariane Monod. The solo exhibition, which is the Swiss artist’s first in Hong Kong, features her latest series of abstract landscape paintings. Ariane will also have a live painting performance on-site at Art Projects Gallery on the 2nd and 3rd April prior to the opening reception of her solo exhibition on 4th April.

Ariane’s visually stunning landscapes convey an ephemeral quality that slowly unfolds and evolves as the viewer traverses along the paintings’ scroll-like panoramic format. They are abstracted visual assemblages of the artist’s dreams and memories, portraying an inner landscape in which the viewers can enter to form new interpretations based on their personal experiences and imagination.

Ariane paints with natural color pigments with various mixed media in successive layers on aluminum plates, skillfully manipulating the material densities, textures and color saturations, to create a sense of fluidity and atmospheric subtleties that visually reveal the transformative passage of time within the evanescent landscapes.

Born in 1975, Ariane is based in Geneva, Switzerland. She has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Switzerland and Japan. Apart from her paintings, she is also well known for her on-site temporary mural painting performances that further exemplify the concept of impermanence in her work.
