Oeno Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings by Andrew Lui beginning September 15. Opening reception is on September 15 from 4–6PM.
Andrew Lui is known for his use of gestural lines in vivid colours that bring to life themes of voyage and historical drama. Born in Guangzhou, China, Lui came to Toronto in the 1970s where he studied at the Ontario College of Art. While studying later in Italy, the artist found inspiration in Paolo Uccello’s the Battle of San Romano (c.1456). These early Renaissance paintings continue to inform Lui’s dynamic, abstracted images of galloping horses and riders.
Lui’s work is held in private, corporate and public collections including the Musée d’art contemporain in Montreal, Musée de Dijon, France, L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bruxelles, Pallazo Strozzi in Florence, the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery and others.
