de Sarthe USA
With a new approach to collecting and viewing art. Vincent de Sarthe opened an event art space that balances a passion for collecting along with an insight to the art market and its trends. The space is a continuation of DE SARTHE Hong Kong’s internationally recognized artists program as well as an ever-evolving roster of artists from around the world. The space will not function with set exhibitions but instead will implement a free form style of curation allowing it to form and grow organically.
de Sarthe USA opening preview (July 29, 2022)
DE SARTHE first presentation with Mak2 aka Mak Ying Tung 2 (Hong Kong) and Zhong Wei (Beijing) who focus on what it means to be human in the years to come as societal pressures encourage people to participate in the metaverse and adopt it as the new normal. Mak2 reverses the migration process by creating her works in the metaverse and pulling them back into the physical world which in some ways acknowledges the transformation while defying its inevitability. Zhong Wei’s approach in his detailed paintings acts more as voyeur to this phenomenon as he pours countless hours, days and even weeks absorbing digital information and data to then release it onto the canvas in an attempt to take a snapshot of the chaos that is the internet today.
The backroom exhibits works by oil on canvas artist Ma Sibo who perfectly captures light and emotion as well as Rick Levinson who is debuting a new series based off of James Joyce’s novel ‘Finnigens Wake'. Finishing the back room shows a collection of works on paper by Los Angeles based artist Zak Smith. Smith’s works are included in several public collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as The Saatchi Gallery, London.
