Tally Beck Contemporary is a Bangkok-based art consultancy that opened its New York gallery’s doors in October 2010. It aims to bring the newest and best Asian contemporary art to the rest of the world while introducing international expression into the emerging art scenes of Southeast Asia.
The artists the gallery brings to Scope this year will range from new talent to firmly established names in the Asian contemporary scene.Anne Liis a Chinese photographer, trained in Paris, whose photographs embody a crisp refinement and reveal the artist’s unique insights into humanity and formal concerns.Chen Ping,also from China, but currently based in Tasmania, plays with the border between abstraction and representation in his highly textured, monumental oils.Island6is an artists’ collective in Shanghai that collaborates on dynamic LED pieces that provide an electronically animated commentary on Orientalism.
Thai artistBe Takerng Pattanopasis noted for his intricate pen drawings that meticulously attempt to define three-dimensional space on paper. From Thailand’s northeastern Isaan region, painterSongwoot Kaevwisitmonumentalizes Thai traditional medicine with larger-than-life photorealism.
SCOPE will run from March 2-6, 2011 at 320 West Street (across from Pier 40 and between Houston and Spring Streets). Tally Beck Contemporary will host a cocktail reception at their booth, C28, on Saturday, March 5, 4 pm.
