JPS Gallery: The Speagle's

When you think of ‘family’, what comes to mind? Perhaps it is the gingerbread house your family built last Christmas or the comforting embrace of your spouse after a long day at work.American artist Paul Hunter Speagle is set to make a triumphant return to Hong Kong with a new solo exhibition titled The Speagle’s. This unique showcase invites you to enter the artist’s home and meet his endearing family. In a refreshing departure from the ‘perfect family’ facade we often see, Speagle presents a realistic and unfiltered portrayal of the daily encounters within his home.These are experiences that many of us can relate to yet purposely keep hidden from the public eye. Whether it is family disputes or the rising pile of kitchen table bills, this exhibition serves as a beacon of truth and clarity in a world of idealised depictions of family life.

The exhibition unfolds in three stages, each a pivotal phase in the artist’s journey to bringing this unique experience to life. Inspired by his wife’s advice to “paint your life and us,” visitors will first step foot in a room adorned with trinkets of love and objects that hold special meaning to the Speagle family. The next room will be the artist’s studio, a space where visitors can witness how Speagle’s creations not only encapsulate the memories he shares with his family but serve as a means for him to navigate life’s complexities in his pursuit of self-growth, a journey that we all can learn from and be inspired by.

Oil Street Art Space: People Mountain, People Sea

Renowned London based multi-disciplinary artist and set designer Gary Card presents his first major solo show in Hong Kong’s Oil Street Art Space as part of the gallery’s “Oi! Spotlight” 2024 programme taking place from Wednesday 20th March 2024 to Sunday 28th July 2024.

The show entitled “People Mountain, People Sea'' is an exploration of Gary Card’s visually joyful language through a re-imagined blending of eastern and western iconography. Referencing the popular chinglish idiom, the show takes on elements of duality, of re-interpreted meanings and the potential for new inspiration to arise from one culture to another, creating an experience that encourages one to re-discover the familiar with fresh eyes.

Spread across the gallery’s outdoor and indoor spaces, the exhibition channels Card’s desire to capture this vibrancy of Hong Kong through large scale sculpture, paintings and video work all presented through Gary Card’s finely honed spatial sensibilities as a celebrated set designer.

In an approach that the artist refers to as “barnacles of time”, sculptures and paintings have become encrusted with objects both familiar and abstract. This seemingly unconscious layering of history, styles and forms observed in Card’s artworks sits in direct parallel to his observance and interpretation of Hong Kong’s rich physical and cultural landscape.

When: 20th March - 28th July 2024
