”HEALING BEAUTY” – Mike Dargas – solo show
LOCATION: Opera Gallery, W Place, 52 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.
“Healing Beauty” is the first solo exhibition in Asia by German artist Mike Dargas. This exhibition showcases the larger-than-life oil on canvas paintings of the artist. The paintings resemble photographs from a distance, though on a closer look, the intricacies of the line drawings and color are evident.
The style of the artist is a fusion of classical painting style with the elegance of the modern age. The work of the artist is somewhat anonymous, dealing with human emotions.Within these paintings, Dargas intends to capture what he calls “snapshots” of emotions, creating a sense of intimacy with the subject for the viewer to an almost sexually provocative extent.
