Event Description : 
Great Banyan Art presents "Tales of Art" a group show of Narrative Art from across boundaries

The exhibition will showcase around 40 artworks from 15 countries across the world. To illustrate the diversity of narrative art, the exhibition draws upon an eclectic mix of emerging contemporary  artists  who  hail  from  USA,  Germany,  France,  Spain, Netherlands,  Turkey,  Poland,  Norway,  Ukraine,  Lithuania,  Korea,  China, Malaysia, Hong­Kong and Philippines.

As  a  whole,  Tales  of  Art suggests  that  the  ancient  art  of  telling  stories  in images  remains  a  vital  tradition  today  – and it does not matter which generation we belong to – aspire to the narrative. We love stories; we rejoice in anecdotes; we are raconteurs; and we like our art to step out from parables and myths to stories about our times – but, oh, we must have our stories!

In the exhibition, South Korea’s Sung Ha Ahn obsesses about found objects, including stubbed cigarettes in ashtrays blown up larger than life, while Jeong focuses on hyper-reality. Malaysia’s Ahmad Zakii Anwar, similarly, concentrates on photo-realism within urban settings. Lithuania’s Gabriele Sermuksnyte appraises contemporary popular culture with a sense of disbelief as those bored with material pleasures use luxury as a prop while paying lip-service to feminine stereotypes. From the UK, Alex Rennie offers a new perspective of familiarly glimpsed scenes.

China’s Kan Sun, Xiaodong Cui, WeixinGuo and Hongru Yao all have a softness built around the loneliness of the human condition, even amidst a group of friends, or sorority, or in relationships. The palettes are soft and the melancholy seeps through, but there is also dignity and poise. Among them, Xiaodong Cui alone brings the texture and warmth of landscape art to his figurative aesthetic. J Geraldine of the Philippines who works across different mediums references sacredness and ritual iconography without pointing to any one religion, a faith that has stood the test and challenge of time, as it were. Poland’s AgataZychlinska has a sense of the ‘modern’ and is satirical as an artist in response to works that recount artists from a century ago, though her sensibility belongs to the here and now. And in this exhibition photography is handed to us by Spain’s self-taught Viet Ha Tran who draws on the emotions of her female subjects.
