Aung Ko: Infinite Red, 2014

Aung Ko: Infinite Red, 2014

The square painting reflects a somewhat distorted perspective, not an unusual element on Aung Ko’s works.
In a simple landscape carrying rather neutral colours, an extremely long roof structure heads from the right lower part of the canvas towards the focus-point, escalating even through a white stone fence. Before taking a 9o°C turn in the direction of the background to disappear behind the horizon, the line assembles into a small square structure supporting itself a complex roof construction. Some green bushes appear here and there cooling the burning atmosphere of reds and light oranges, but it is the shade under the architectural element that promises a true rest. The quiet and calm emanating from the work surely smooths a too vibrant space!

aung co : catch the colours

Aung Co is a renaissance man — he is a director of independent short films, a potter, a performance artist, and installation artist. Aung Co’s 2004 solo show made him the most promising artist of his generation. The combination of his pottery and paintings impressed every visitor.

Since that exhibition, serious collectors and some museums have collected his work. Within a few years he grew prolific. He is perhaps the best-travelled of the Myanmar artists.

His recent paintings are pictures of anonymous women pictures, based on old hand-painted photographs. He says, ‘I want to catch the colours of  a moment in history.’

Based on an interview with Nance Cunningham in January 2011, in Yangon. For more art conversations, click on the ‘art conversation’ tag at the top of this post.

Insert Title Here : 10-15 Dec 2010

Never trapped in the moment. Continually changing and seeking. Continually challenging and redefining. Continually shifting and questioning. We all slip along time into the future, revising our conceptions and refining our perceptions.

This exhibition of contemporary art is an invition to re-interpretation. On display is a selection of paintings and multi-media works to explore — new aesthetics, emerging meanings, new generation — to bring you to diverse vantage points from which to re-evaluate your impressions.

Come to the exhibit and free your mind into the art as the artists have freed their inspiration. Some will reveal meanings, some will confound. You may choose to assign a title — but you may find yourself taking it away again, refining, questioning, seeking.

Featuring thirty artists working in a variety of media, on display from 10 – 15 December 2010, from 10 to 18:00 at Pansodan Gallery, No. 286 Pansodan Street, upper block, Yangon
