Opening - Art Beyond Limits @ Opera Gallery

Some big names will soon be on display on Orchard Road. Five monumental sculptures by Marc Quinn, Manolo Valdés, Mr. Brainwash and Laurence Jenkell will be propped upt in front of the Mandarin Gallery from Sep 17 –Oct 18, while more of their works will be on display at Opera Gallery in ION, along with works by Picasso, Matisse, Warhol and Damien Hirst, as part of the Art Beyond Limits exhibition. Marc Quinn rose to prominence in the 1990’s after his work “Self”, a sculpture of his head made with nine pints of his own blood, was displayed in Charles Saatchi’s collection of works by the Young British Artists. Opera Gallery will present several paintings from his In the Night Garden series (orchids and other flowers in an hyper realist style) , along with sculptures from his Syren series with Kate Moss in various pauses. There is also a fascinating Iris round painting.
