The Eternal Return
14th March - 30th March 2016
The Cat Street Gallery is proud to exhibit Marc Standing second solo show in Hong Kong 'The Eternal Return’ after a hugely successful show in 2014.
‘The Eternal Return’ presents a strong symbolism of the mask. The sculptural works are inspired by fertility and harvest deities as well as mythological creatures with strong motifs stemming from his interest in the collecting of objects, of cabinets of curiosity, the old world, colonialism, and our mortality. The paintings have a dreamlike surreal quality to them. They are drawing inspiration from both African and Mexican imagery without the means of appropriation.
