ARTWORKS FROM THE TWILIGHT Drifting between dream and nightmare, desire and drama. Moon Art Fair Hamburg 2021
MOON ART FAIR HAMBURG is an international, curated art fair founded in 2020 that focuses on curatorial balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art. MAF innovates the standard fair model by creating a hybrid concept selecting a curatorial team to identify, and curate a selection of galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations, in dialogue with an architecturally designed venue: TheWestin Hamburg/ Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.
The summer edition of Moon Art Fair Hamburg takes place in TheWestin Hamburg/ Elbphilharmonie from 18-20 June 2021 with leading galleries and artists from across North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Africa. The exhibitors will present Modern and contemporary works by emerging and established artists, among them Yuan Ru Gallery (Taipei)
Yuan Ru Gallery has hosted many landmark exhibitions, and has accumulated experience in various forms of exhibitions at home and abroad, including Hong Kong Art Central in 2017 and 2018, "Personal Structure-Open Boundaries" hosted by European Cultural Center during the 58th Venice Art Biennale in 2019, 2019 INK ASIA in Hong Kong, 2020 Art Wynwood in Miami, 2020 Hybrid Art Fair in Madrid, and since 2018 has never been absent from the Taiwan art and cultural event, “Art Taipei.” Adhering to an expansive view of art and accepting all types of contemporary artistic expressions, Yuan Ru Gallery provides an outlet for the world to appreciate the beauty of Taiwan art.
Julie Hsieh is a Taiwanese-American artist. Throughout her life, she immersed herself in various forms of art and creativity, from the art of vocal performance, to the art of medicine, and finally to visual arts. Julie’s artwork is largely abstract, inspired by her diverse backgrounds in music and medicine, as well as Mother Nature and the environment. She uses multiple mediums such as acrylic, oil, pastels, charcoal, watercolor and ink, not limiting herself to just one medium. For her, art is an escape from the routine, sameness and predictability. Julie feels that “Art is an expression of our humanity with unlimited potential to connect people from different backgrounds and nationalities. Art transcends many boundaries and has the powerful capacity to heal, empathize, connect and inspire. The sky is truly the limit to this amazing field of art and I feel fortunate to be riding on the wings of art’s journey.”
Chien-Hsing Lien is born in 1962 in Keelung, Taiwan. He graduated from the Western Painting Section of the Art Department of the Chinese Culture University, Taiwan. In 1984, he was selected for the first annual Republic of China Modern Painting Outlook Exhibition. In 1987, he joined the group exhibition of the award-winners of the Shiy De-jinn Award. In 1989, he joined a large-scale exhibition of the Taipei Painting Association organized by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. Lien Chien-Hsing first came to prominence in the 80s with his superb Realistic technique. In the 90s, using different pictures, he has created Realistic works recalling images from his childhood, heavy with personal coloring. His works subtly reveal a feeling of pessimism, combined with a subconscious, mysterious shadow to become a unique kind of "magical realism".
