On Thursday 16th April, Asian Art in London attended the private view of award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle, at Rossi & Rossi gallery, Mayfair.
Doyle is commonly recognised for his work in films such as ‘In the Mood for Love‘ (2000, dir. Wong Kar-Wai) and ‘Chungking Express‘ (1994, dir. Wong Kar-Wai.) However this exhibition, titled, ‘No Glass Twice as Big as it Needs to Be,’ showcased Doyle’s other artistic qualities; the exhibition includes paintings, mixed-media collages, and video installations.
In the galleries press release they comment that: “For Doyle, the process of creating collages is therapeutic; it allows him to re-energise after long days of filming.” This can be seen in his paint splattered floral works (seen below) as well as his more humorous mixed-media collages that include historic Chinese artefacts contrasted with more commonplace images.
Rossi & Rossi add: “No Glass is a celebration of the pictorial surface through the restrictions imposed upon it by its physical frames.” Once again reinforcing the fact that this contrasting artistic side is separate from Doyle’s directing and cinematography work.
The exhibition runs until 15th May 2015.
