In the exhibition Twisted & Tangled, Eric Niebuhr gathers his inspiration from everyday scenes across Hong Kong streets. Twisted & Tangled showcases a selection of his latest works and the behind-the-scenes painted studies. The artist plays between the line of figurative and abstract form. It challenges with a familiar sense of perception but leaves indefinite readings in the viewers’ mind.
The subject matter used in Eric Niebuhr’s paintings – which are based on gouache and computer-aided studies of photo-based and digital sources – can be traced back to the artist’s primary source of inspiration. He uses acrylic with a combination of mediums to create puddled areas of paint, amorphous passages, and flat shapes. The abstract qualities that the source and the paint material offer, introduce viewers to a world of unpredictability and create a visual entanglement – twisted & tangled.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
