Song Ling: Beauty and the Beast - Art Collector

Song Ling, Beauty the beast 17, 2012. Acrylic on canvas, 122 x 91cm

Since returning to the Australian art scene in 2005, Song Ling has produced big, bold, canvases filled with screen-dot images drawn from his Asian heritage. The works were making some strong statements about societal changes and cross-cultural exchange, but on another level, they were also colourful and charming. In his fourth exhibition at Niagara Galleries, that will change. The 16 new paintings in Beauty and the Beast reveal a darker side. Black and white faces hidden beneath garish masks question our expectations of beauty and glamour.

Opening: 6-8pm Tuesday 10 July
Exhibition closes: 28 July 2012
Location: Niagara Galleries, 245 Punt Road Richmond, Victoria 3121
