Contemporary by Angela Li is proud to present Body Fragments, the fourth Hong Kong solo exhibition of Beijing-based German artist Martin Wehmer, in conjunction with the launch of his new book MJB麻將布 and the first edition of Central West Hong Kong, an art initiative by a collective of galleries in the Central West District. Wehmer has been painting in his signature heavy impasto style for more than three decades, a technique he has mastered through premeditated brush and palette-knife strokes. Highly expressive with painterly gestures whilst stripping down “the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak”, Wehmer adopts an ideology by Hans Hofmann and develops a one-of-a-kind artistic language of his own, while integrating his personal experience of living in China as a foreigner onto his canvases. Body Fragments is on view from September 24 to October 31.
