Duane Hanson’s Hyperreal Sculptures at Serpentine Sackler Gallery
29/05/2015
Duane Hanson’s Hyperreal Sculptures at Serpentine Sackler Gallery“Duane Hanson” at London’s Serpentine Sackler Gallery is the first survey show in London since 1997 of the late American sculptor Duane Hanson who throughout his forty-year career created lifelike sculptures portraying ordinary, everyday working-class Americans as well as overlooked members of society — “those that do not stand out.” “I’m mostly interested in the human form as subject matter and means of expression for my sculpture,” Hanson said in 1981. “I'm not duplicating life, I'm making a statement about human values. I show the empty-headedness, the fatigue, the aging, the frustration. These people can't keep up with the competition. They’re left out, psychologically handicapped.” “Duane Hanson” features key works from the Hanson’s oeuvre that showcase his incredible talent for transforming what the Serpentine describes as “the banalities and trivialities of everyday life into iconographic material.” Highlights of the exhibition include “Man with Hand Cart” (1975), “Housepainter” (1984/1988), and “Queenie II” (1988). Hanson was thrust into the spotlight in 1965 when his sculpture of a young pregnant girl on a table covered in a white linen sheet, provocatively titled “Abortion,” caused widespread outrage. He continued to create sculptures that dealt with social misery and violence until the late 60s when he shifted to portraying everyday people, beginning with “Football Players” in 1968. According to Julia Peyton-Jones, director, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-director, Serpentine Galleries, “Duane Hanson’s iconic sculptures of ordinary people will literally stop visitors in their tracks this summer. Beyond the stunning realism, the power of Hanson’s work lies in his unwavering focus on and sympathy for the human condition.”  Accompanying the exhibition is a presentation of 10 original Polaroid photographs, given by the Duane Hanson Estate, which feature a mixture of the original models used to inform a number of Hanson’s most notable pieces, and the pieces themselves installed in the artist’s studio. “Duane Hanson” is at London’s Serpentine Sackler Gallery from June 2-September 13, 2015.

New Editions by Julian Opie at Alan Cristea Gallery, London
29/05/2015
New Editions by Julian Opie at Alan Cristea Gallery, London“Julian Opie: 2012 – 2015” at London’s Alan Cristea Gallery presents new works by the renowned British artist alongside some of his most exciting prints and animations from the last three years. Showing across the gallery’s two spaces at 31 and 34 Cork Street, the exhibition features Opie’s recent editions that have been inspired by different views of the town and countryside. Highlights of the exhibition include “Walking in the rain.” (2015), a new pair of screenprints depicting figures in London and Seoul; a new series of lenticulars, “Nature 2.” (2015), which depict forest trees, boats, sheep, and fish in shallow rock pools; and for the first time a new series of aluminium wall hangings, “Nature 1.” (2015), featuring images of boats, sheep, carp, and pebbles. According to Alan Cristea, owner and managing director of Alan Cristea Gallery, Opie has achieved his status as an artist of contemporary life “through reminding us to look at what is around us, by highlighting the essential qualities of what we are looking at... He has taught me how to look and, in doing so, has reminded me of the mundane miracle of life.” Opie explains: “Everything you see is a trick of the light. Light bouncing into your eye, light casting shadows, creating depth, shapes, colors. Remove the light and it’s all gone. We use vision as a means of survival and it’s essential to take it for granted in order to function, but awareness allows us to look at looking and by extension look at ourselves and be aware of our presence.” “Julian Opie: 2012 – 2015” is at Alan Cristea Gallery from June 5 to July 18.

Lifestyle Pick: The Finer Things at Auctions (May 29-Jun 4)
29/05/2015
Lifestyle Pick: The Finer Things at Auctions (May 29-Jun 4)The finer things at auctions this week include exquisite Chinese snuff bottles at Sotheby’s 10th instalment of the Snuff Bottles from the Mary and George Bloch Collection sale in Hong Kong on Jun 1. Comprising 214 lots spanning the diverse range of Qing dynasty craftsmanship, the bottles count among the finest ones ever made for the Imperial court and scholarly elite. One such alluring piece is an enameled ‘Garden Scene’ snuff bottle, bearing the blue-enamel mark and period of Qianlong (est. $206,400 - 232,200). For watch collectors, several Patek Philippe models are on offer at Christie’s Important Watches auction in Hong Kong on Jun 3. A particularly interesting timepiece is a very fine and extremely rare titanium limited edition aviation-inspired wristwatch, signed MB&F, circa 2012, which comprises a mechanical jeweled movement with horizontally-set mainspring barrels that are visible through the top and bottom (est. $110,000 - $150,000). Over at Christie’s, in Hong Kong on Jun 2, is the Magnificent Jewels with Jewelry and Jadeite from the Family Collection of K'ung Hsiang-Hsi sale, which boasts several precious gems, including jadeite bangles of naturally vivid colors and high translucency, as well as a 3.0-carat fancy intense blue diamond ring (est. $2.3 million - $3.6 million). Meanwhile, perennially-collectible items made by Russian jeweler Fabergé are on offer at Sotheby’s Russian Works of Art, Fabergé & Icons sale in London on Jun 2. Lots range from the affordable — such as a sapphire pendant claw-set within an openwork rose-cut diamond-set scroll frame and circular-cut diamonds (est. $5,958 - $7,448) — to investment-grade, like a silver-mounted hardstone timepiece, circa 1890, that features a military trophy including the cuirass and helmet of an officer of His Majesty Alexander III's Life-Guard Cuirassier Regiment (est. $148,960 - $223,440).
