Alisan Fine Arts is excited to announce its participation in Art Basel 2024, where we will celebrate our gallery's legacy and present a variety of artworks by renowned Chinese artists, both modern and contemporary. Our booth will feature the works of 11 influential artists who have been long-standing collaborators with us, including emerging female interdisciplinary artist, Chu Chu. With a focus on abstraction, this year we will showcase the captivating works of Chao Chung-Hsiang, Chuang Che, Gao Xingjian, Hsiao Chin, Lui Shou-Kwan, and Wucius Wong’s geometric landscape. Apart from the abstract works, colourfully expressive works of Walasse Ting, Xu Lei's surreal gongbi paintings, and Ju Ming's Taichi sculpture will also be exhibited. Within our booth, a dedicated Kabinett section will highlight the often-overlooked sculptor from Hong Kong, Antonio Mak Hin-Yeung, with a curated selection of his bronze sculptures and sketches.

For our main booth, highlights include works from modern masters, such as, Chao Chung-Hsiang’s Black Splash 9, a rare early work that embodies Chao’s venture into abstract expressionism and action painting; Chuang Che’s Composition 1981, which is an abstract-expressionist work with his distinctive lyrical, calligraphic momentum; Gao Xingjian’s A Free Spirit, a semi-abstract piece that poetically depict the existential dilemma of human being existence; Hsiao Chin’s La Cascata-30, a rare masterful sublimation of the movement of a waterfall with the artist’s brushstrokes and splashing of colours; Ju Ming’s Taichi Series-00580, an emblematic work from his Taichi series; Lui Shou-Kwan’s Nature, A64-13, a large abstract landscape work that has never been shown to the public before; Walasse Ting’s large triptych Four Oriental Beauties with a Yellow Horse and Two Parrots, celebrating life with the artist’s unique blend of fluorescent acrylic and ink brushstrokes; Wucius Wong’s landscape Autumn Mountain reimagined through a lens of geometric abstraction; and Xu Lei’s Moving Water in Spring, where the artist creates a serene bank-side landscape in his signature gongbi style in blue. In terms of female artist, we showcase Chu Chu’s Cities-Across the Water, which is a great example testifying her prowess to integrate photography and calligraphy into her creations.

For Kabinett, we will dedicate this section to Antonio Mak Hin-Yeung, one of the most important but underappreciated sculptors in Hong Kong, due to his premature passing. With his sculptures revealing a sense of frailty of human existence by seemingly layering sheets of bronze upon each other, a selection of such pieces, such as Sleeping State and Torso with Slant Cut, will be presented, along with his drawings and sketches, in order to provide a holistic overview of his short but important artistic life.
