Ah Xian: Axiom

Date
5 November - 26 February 2017

From beauty to melancholia to serenity, Ah Xian's human forms are the embodiment of universal truths and states of being. Spanning media including porcelain, bronze and concrete, these artworks link across humanity and across civilisations with their reference to ancient arts presented on contemporary forms.

The work of Ah Xian unites the collection streams of Asian art, porcelain, and contemporary Australian art that are prominent in the Hamilton Gallery collection.
