Hannah Benassi is a Scottish abstract painter based in Edinburgh. Since graduating in Fine Art (2019) with a First-Class BA Honors Degree from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Benassi continued her creative studies at GSA and Glasgow University where she received a distinction in Contemporary Curatorial Practice (2020). Benassi has been awarded the Farquhar Reid Trust prize and was nominated as Saatchi Arts Rising Star (2019). With her practice based in Scotland, her work has been exhibited across the UK and Portugal and continues to exhibit her paintings internationally. Recent exhibitions that showcased Benassi’s work from 2021 onwards includes, ‘MARS BLUEBERRIES’ with PADA Studios (Barreiro), ‘Abstract Zeitgeist’ with Rafiki Gallery (Edinburgh) and ‘Beyond Boundaries’ with TATHA Gallery (Newport-On-Tay).

Hannah Benassi’s work explores the visual layering of materials through painting. Her work uses mostly acrylic paint and surfaces that combine printed collages, clay, oil pastels and paper to create structural forms on a soft surface. Hanna shows subtle thin layers of paint, scratch-filled surfaces and patchwork structures in abstract images. She was inspired by the changing tones and shadows of daylight and the organic nature of man-made landscapes.

ARCH REVIEW | Making Complicity

When the painting is really close to us, the first thing that appears to our eyes is this Le cimetière marin[1] written by Valéry in 1922. The curators Hu Yihang and Zhang Tingzhi, together with artist Guo Yujian, divided the exhibition “Dangerous Complicity” in the gallery into three chapters with words and symbols: imagination, a plateau, and a theatre.

ARCH INTERVIEW | Guo Yujian

Since then, I have tried to let daydream-like imagination seep into the picture, and those earlier, more symbolic images have also been naturally diluted. Perhaps, it is precisely because of the temperament that seems to be infiltrated by the picture and some image contents that are contrary to reality that cause the association like a dream.

ARCH REVIEW | Gaze in the Dim Glow

“The Task of Alchemy”, Pocono Zhao Yu’s solo exhibition at Arch Gallery, presents a subtle sense of time traveling. As the title of the exhibition alludes to, it is as if the smelting and mysterious deeds of some spiritual objects. Within the whisper that fluttering outside of time, this enormous task is under the invisible dome of time.

ARCH 采访 | 薛若哲

“绘画没有办法不诚恳,这是一种无法伪装的媒介。我对绘画的诚恳和机械的、拾得的图像产生的化学反应感兴趣,尤其是当网络图像和铜板线腐蚀这种必须要经过转化才能成型的绘制方式相遇,就形成了有意思的关系。”

ARCH 采访 | 朱湘闽

朱湘闽的作品在愉悦的状态中,凸显了轻盈、弥散的线条与形态,层叠的不同色块和材料之间强调了艺术家自身的意识与感知。画面中直观的力量感,是艺术家对“矛盾和悖论在身体里形成完整的统一“的思考,形象间释放的情绪在思想的过滤与分解后,营造了更有流动性的感官体验。

ARCH 采访 | 谢燚

他的作品长期以来从“劳动”这个常用的词汇出发,不断向现实世界里以“语言”为基础的权利追问。“我只希望我认为重要的东西能被大家知道,那就是”具体的劳动“在现实世界中是如何”做功“的。”
