Space Invaders by Stephen Thorpe
Denny Dimin Hong Kong presents its first virtual exhibition with Hong Kong-based British artist Stephen Thorpe. The exhibition will feature all new works reflecting on an intense period of self-isolation brought about by Covid-19.
Thorpe is known for his interior-based paintings, which are informed by a longstanding interest in psychoanalysis, sociology, folklore, symbolism and the reality of myth. His painted architectural spaces can be understood as a manifestation of the psyche arrived at through an ongoing and in-depth self-analysis of the personal and collective unconscious. The rooms are the mind. Thorpe describes this as unmapped psychological territories manifesting, and the act of painting as a process of visualizing and harnessing the internal coexistence of order and chaos.
