Vasily Kandinsky

When I first read Kandinsky’s theory, I have to read through several times using my imagination to understand his peculiar language, where geometrical, physical, aesthetic and spiritual concepts coexist naturally. His interpretation on drawing is the development from point to a moving point to line and multiple lines interact on the “basic plane” to produce composition. His theory is fascinating. and there are a lot of the quotes in his book inspire my early drawing. “The element of time can be recognized to a far greater extent in the case of line than in that of point – extension being a temporal concept.”

I particularly love his metaphor with drawing is like dancing, which the whole body and every finger draw lines with very clear expression.

Ya-Chu Kang – The Dirt Carpet

Ya-chu Kang is a Taipei-based artist. Her artwork explores the concept of how the body and physical perception relate to materials. She is a very productive artist working with installation, sculpture, paper collage, video art and drawing. I particularly like one of her series of work – The Dirt Carpet. That was one of her cultural research projects, the work is site specific using the local dust, pigment or charcoal dust stencil on floor and invite the audience to walk around. The materials she chose from specific place already carries the cultural and original meaning, the impermanent placement of the pigment is aesthetic. 
I am interested in how perceived environment affect art making. My latest work “The Refinement” is my first site specific work, the visible material found on the studio floor is my medium, by removing the dirt and creating a reversed pattern  invites the audience to give another careful look at our dull environment.

London Art Fair

In just two days we have transformed our showroom into an art gallery to welcome visitors interested in the rhythmically meditative artwork of Catherine Pickop and to demonstrate our Augmented Reality application for art galleries.

Catherine is an independent artist from Hong Kong who has recently finished a Degree in Fine Art where she explored repetition, stillness, and rhythm. She exhibited the previous weekend at the artrooms exhibition representing over 70 artists from all over the globe. and you can see her work on her website or visit our showroom.

Tekuchi sponsored the Hong Kong School Art School in 2018 by making an Augmented Reality mobile and tablet app (AR-T) for the graduation show of the RMIT Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art). It was truly our pleasure to assist the young aspiring artists with a platform to promote themselves.
