ABOUT THE SHOW:

Young Soy Gallery in association with Goods of Desire are proud to showcase the works of Hong Kong based artists Ross Turpin, Tyler Jackson Pritchard, and Gedvile Bunikyte in The Bridge to Triumph. This exhibition showcases a transition from figurative to abstract.

Ross Turpin uses a few main colors: red, turquoise, white and black to paint faces with dark underlying tones. Tyler Jackson Pritchard paints the outlines of faces, covered by more abstract lines and geometric shapes. In contrast to Turpin and Pritchard, Gedvile Bunikyte’s art is abstract, without even the suggestion of a face or figure. The transition from figurative to abstract suggests a parallel transition from internal struggle to triumph. It provides a dialogue from close-minded to clear headed, from artist to viewer, and from viewer to themself.

THE BRIDGE TO TRIUMPH

10-26 December, 2020

PMQ SG03-G07, G/F Block, 35 Aberdeen St,Sheung Wan

This exhibition on visual forms of expression comes at a crucial point in a year that has repeatedly fueled isolation and forced self-reflection. We hope that engaging with these works enables the audience to further continue this reflection and work towards lucidity, and ultimately their own triumph.

ARTISTS

GEDVILE BUNIKYTE

mixed media artist

Gedvile Grace Bunikyte is one of those thirsty for knowledge and cognition, who devoted her life to crack the code of logos, nature and being. She builds her knowledge in philosophy, physics, psychology, spirituality, and mysticism. The way she expresses her reasoning is wordless, symbolic and abstract, as she has created her own language in drawings – language which is similar to that of Aristotle’s only because it is presented on a piece of paper by using writing utensils.

Her works are minimalistic and yet astonishing due to the abstraction and conceptualisation that, if to put into a words, would be hard to understand but possible for most people to feel. Brilliant Tolstoy’s observation, “an artist is a man who can draw and paint everything.” [2] Notwithstanding that, it is possible to catch the notion of her work, you can see light symbols of nature here and there, and the titles speak for themselves too. Still her work is not in any way constricting or veiled in obstacles, but rather it empowers the imagination and intellect of spectators.check out her work!

ROSS TURPIN

MIXED MEDIA ARTIST

Born in South Africa, Ross Turpin paints to demonstrate the culmination of his recent personal evolution. Ross uses mixed media to create figurative and abstract art inspired by recurring visions.

TYLER JACKSON PRITCHARD

mixed media artist

Tyler Jackson Pritchard is a multidisciplinary artist focusing in painting and photography creating a new vernacular that bridges the gap between abstraction and representational art. His work expresses external/internal struggle and the underlying constructs and forms that result. Jackson’s paintings teem with a raw yet reserved energy. His diversity of subject matter, genres, and techniques parallels the multiplicity and complexity of themes he explores through his work such as grief, catharsis, conquest and elation. He uses his most recognizable motif of continuous intersecting lines as a linguistic evolution, with a full range of tonality. With seemingly haphazard layers of overlapping strokes, he evokes a mysterious intricacy of how the individual processes imagery or events; the fury, meditative, complexity, clarity, masochism and benevolence appear random yet methodical.
