Dubai, UAE, June 4, 2013: Pro Art Gallery, the gallery that celebrates innovative art and collectibles, is proud to announce its next exhibition titled ‘‘Full Spectrum’’, which is a showcase of the collaboration of the works of Hong Kong-based handbag designer, Piecco Pang (PP4E) and New York-based painter, Antoinette Wysocki. The exhibition will open on Wednesday 5th June 2013 at 7 P.M, and will run till 5th July 2013 at Pro Art Gallery located at the Palm Strip Shopping Mall on Beach Road, Jumeirah 1.
The “Full Spectrum” was conceptualised when Piecco Pang presented by Catherine Gaudeau met with Tatiana Faure, Owner and Founder of Pro Art Gallery, in Dubai. The concept to present and sell the paintings and handbags of the same print together was born.
Piecco Pang first met Antoinette Wysocki at her Art opening in Hong Kong and a strong creative connection was formed. Deciding to hone in on their love for fashion, function and art, they agreed to collaborate their visions of colliding art and fashion creating limited edition handbags, designed by Pang, that feature abstract paintings created by Wysocki.
“Full Spectrum” is a brilliant platform that debuts the collaboration between the two artists who come together to show their art and to create ready to wear art pieces in the form of evening clutches, which are one of kind pieces just like the Painting they were birthed from.
“This is the first time Pro Art Gallery is showcasing such a wonderful combination of not only artists, but two diverse art forms. The collections are set to make a huge mark in the art world in the UAE and we foresee a tremendous amount of interest in this unique exhibition.” said Tatiana Faure.
From the Article of the “Financial Times” (May 10, 2013) ‘Does Art really sell product ?’ from Vanessa Friedman, the collaboration between Piecco Pang and Antoinette Wysocki is given as an example, where there are many famous collaborations between Luxury Firms and Artists such as the corporate Vuitton / Yayoi Kusama collaboration a few months ago. Art has even inspired Art fashion: Yves Saint Laurent had that Mondrian Collection, Elsa Schiaparelli worked with Salvador Dali… Everybody remembers the Vuitton/ Takashi Murakami collaboration.
Biographies of featured Artist and Designer of “Full Spectrum”
Antoinette Wysocki is an expressionistic painter who employs mixed media on organic materials. Wysocki has removed herself from the confines of only stretched canvas and turned equal attention to working on rag. Paper allows the artist to play with absorption rates and its characteristic malleable quality retains the immediacy of drawing – which has always been the touchstone for Wysocki’s painting. The artist has developed a process of combining various materials, chance, control and analysis in her pieces. In each of her works, Wysocki creates a balance between the media and absorption rate of the surface, so that the various materials interact, binding or refracting from each other and the paper/linen itself. Each work starts with gestures and washes, and then moves into controlled brush strokes with detail. When the painting reaches a comfortable finished point, it is then time to indulge in the materials. The goal is to balance raw, sometimes untouched surface in some areas with highly saturated colour in others, sometimes consciously, others by chance. One misused layer of material can alter the piece beyond repair, inspire to the next step or become the focus of the piece itself. Wysocki has shown internationally including: New York, London and Hong Kong.
