HdM Gallery is a leading contemporary gallery with a special focus on Contemporary Chinese Art. Founded on a passion for Chinese art, the first HdM GALLERY was opened in Beijing in 2009. Exhibiting regularly at prominent fairs such as Art Brussels, Photo London and Art Basel Hong Kong, HdM introduces contemporary Chinese artists to a worldwide client base and broadens perceptions, understanding and appreciation of these engaging contemporary works.

In ASIA NOW 2019, HdM Gallery presents a group show entitled “Small is Beautiful” with works by Yun Yongye, Qian Jiahua, T’ang Haywen, Wang Yi, Zhu Rixin and Ye Linghan. The work of these artists demonstrates the vitality and breadth of the new generation of Chinese contemporary art and shows that while Chinese artists are often seen to be working in large formats that are proportional to the size of exhibition spaces in their home country, they are equally deft at working in smaller, more compact formats.

Yun Yongye has recently joined the gallery and makes his international debut at Asia Now. His works display an astonishing accuracy and precision with oil and pencil, and are often humorous and satirical. 

Wang Yi’s practice is closely related to the new abstract movement in China initiated by Ding Yi. His works rely on chromatic variations and geometrical shapes to create an illusion of movement and depth within the canvas.

Qian Jiahua works mainly with acrylic, producing geometric abstract works where large patches of color are demarcated by thin contrasting lines.

An interdisciplinary artist, Ye Linghan’s paintings create a primeval universe with luxurious fauna where a conscience-less man evolves freely.

The work of Zhu Rixin illustrates the renewal of figurative painting. He uses landscape architecture theory to illustrate maps of the world, painting or drawing imaginary geological phenomena and human conflicts that create a collision between natural powers and fictional boundaries. 

T’ang Haywen works with ink and watercolor on paper. His abstract works feature gracious brushstrokes in vibrant colors that recall the strokes of Chinese calligraphy. A contemporary of Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun, he is now recognized as one of the pioneers of Chinese abstraction.
