Venue: Oi Ling Antiques
“The Poetry of Colors” Exhibition will be presented at Oi Ling Antiques from 22 March to 22 April 2018, showcasing more than 40 abstract paintings by Philippe Caretti, a Swiss artist.
The Poetry of Colors is reminiscent of the action painting, or gestural abstraction, of the mid-20th century. But one of the collection’s distinctive element is Caretti’s unique and unusual choice of tools: syringes. The paint is first drawn into the syringe, and afterwards, skillfully expelled to form the envisaged lines, swirls, dots, blotches, or patterns. Caretti spent 4 years on creating his inaugural collection, with an unusual tool: syringes. The collection is divided into 4 stanzas, namely “Communion”, “Taking Form”, “Coming Together” and “The Garden of Eden”.
