Guan Wei: The Enchantment - Art Collector

Guan Wei, The Enchantment, 2012. Courtesy: the artist and Arc One Gallery, Melbourne

There is fine and gentle nature to Guan Wei and his artistic practice. The gentleness manifests in his own questioning and enquiry of his creative world. The Enchantment, a series of twelve paintings, and Up in the Clouds, a series of five bronze sculptures, retain the humour, wisdom and cross-cultural exploration that have become characteristic of his oeuvre.

The Enchantment, the artist as magician plays his hand to the allure and power of art. In this imagined new world, the Big Guy is the central figure in the paintings. He features as the modern day alchemist, masterfully playing out and watching over scenes of his enchanted universe.
