DESCRIPTION

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.

The solo exhibition, which is the Swiss </p><p>artists first in Hong Kong, features her latest series of abstract landscape paintings. Ariane will also have a live painting </p><p>performance on-site at Art Projects Gallery on the 2nd and 3rd April prior to the opening reception of her solo exhibition on 4th </p><p>April.</p><p>Arianes visually stunning landscapes convey an ephemeral quality that slowly unfolds and evolves as the viewer traverses </p><p>along the paintings scroll-like panoramic format. They are abstracted visual assemblages of the artists dreams and memories, </p><p>portraying an inner landscape in which the viewers can enter to form new interpretations based on their personal experiences </p><p>and imagination. </p><p>Ariane paints with natural color pigments with various mixed media in successive layers on aluminum plates, skillfully manipulating </p><p>the material densities, textures and color saturations, to create a sense of fluidity and atmospheric subtleties that visually reveal </p><p>the transformative passage of time within the evanescent landscapes.</p><p>Born in 1975, Ariane is based in Geneva, Switzerland. She has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions in </p><p>Switzerland and Japan.
