I am not the greatest fan of Chinese art, althought i have learned to appreciate some of the artists and their works. One of the last to admire was the artist Ah Xian whose works were exhibited in the “stijl zalen” of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. They blended like they were meant to have been made for this location. Specially the “GOUDLEER” and Chinese rooms were a feast to the eye. Now i have acquired the exhibition catalogue for this exhibition. It is the one that sold out almost instantly. available at www.ftn-books.com

Chinese artist Ah Xian lives and works in Sydney where for nearly two decades he has explored aspects of the human form using ancient Chinese craft methods including porcelain, lacquer, jase, bronze, and even concrete. The artist often uses busts of his own family members including his wife, brother, and father onto which he imprints traditional designs with a vivid cobalt blue glaze. via Colossal.
