Random is Beautiful presents a series of portraits by Hong Kong artist KR. The exhibition opens on August 6, 2010, at Above Second Gallery, 31 Eastern Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong.
The artist’s statement suggests an interest in physiognomy, though the resulting works don’t quite prove a refined portrait technique. Still, there is a certain charm to KS’ painting, and an earnest interest in the subject. The presented works are admittedly personal, he says “In fact, drawing is a very subjective technique, because how you really want to express depends on yourself.” While true, this turns the portrait into something a touch nebulous. In short, Random is Beautiful gives space to KS’ vision of the face… not a bad vision, just one that skips between the lines of several disciplines.
