Sunset at Pacific Vortex


On 22 February Ivorypress presents the first solo exhibition of Chinese artist Michael Chow (Shanghai, 1939) at the gallery.

Several years ago, amorphous accumulations of discarded plastic began to appear in Michael Chow’s paintings. These unruly shapes that seem to have a life of their own are the artist’s representation of the Pacific Vortex. For this exhibition he has harnessed the vocabulary of abstract painting to confront one of the world’s most pressing ecological problems.
