GUAN WEI

GUAN WEI's large-scale work Revisionary is in the Art Gallery of New South Wales' new exhibition In one drop of water.

Drawing on rich and diverse works of art, primarily from the AGNSW collection, this exhibition explores the poetic, symbolic and social significance of water in Asian art. Revisionary is dominated by an aqueous bright blue plane, symbolising both the heavens and the ocean. The artist has referred to this work as representing a form of last judgement.

The exhibition continues until December 2020.
