SCAD Hong Kong presents the first large-scale solo exhibition by artist Angel Otero in Hong Kong, which premiered at the SCAD Museum of Art in February. "Material Discovery" features a selection of new and recent paintings. A rising star in the contemporary art world, Otero is known for his process-based approach to painting, specifically his practice of creating "oil skins" that are made from paint poured onto glass and peeled off in dry sheets. These skins are then grafted onto the artist’s canvas to create assemblage works composed of additional materials such as resin, spray paint and silicone. The resulting works are simultaneously collage and décollage and present a dynamic, fresh approach to contemporary painting.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Gallery hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday
