Art Expo Malaysia 2013 – Sculpture
Art Expo Malaysia is held at MATRADE Exhibition & Convention Centre again, from 19 to 22 September 2013.
You will be greeted by few booths showcasing sculptures and statues near the entrance. My favourite is the Spain both. The incredible series is by Jesus Curia (also showcased in Art Expo Malaysia 2012).
I regretted not allocating more time so that I can find better angle or can wait for the crowd to pass. To illustrate this point, here is one artwork by Curia.
Below is the same sculpture viewed from different angle.
I has under estimated the amount of ‘fun’ I could have in the exhibition.
We should spend more than 2 to 3 hours to cover the exhibits.
The artworks are selling in the range from about USD2,000 to USD100,000. The bronze sculpture behind the ‘Worldly Woman’ priced over USD50K.
The value of the artwork lies in the eyes of the admirer.
I like those artwork that communicate with the audience at emotional, spiritual or sub-conscious level.
It may look meaningless or ridiculous, but somehow it could strike a cord in your mind. The after effect could last for a very long time.
Entrance is free of charge to the expo. I highly recommend parents and teachers bring the children to Art Expo.
It is very helpful to inspire the young (uncontaminated) minds to the world of art. Less Internet gaming, more visual feast for the right brain. It might open up their mind and giving you a big smile.
