Sands China recently unveiled the second exhibition of its new Sands Gallery at the Grand Suites at Four Seasons, with 101 Bowls – An Art Exhibition Featuring Water Poon’s Art & Romy Cheung’s Fashion.
With a theme of “Full of Content, Full of Love,” the exhibition was created as a labour of love by renowned Chinese artist Water Poon and his wife, fashion designer Romy Cheung. It showcases over 40 bowls painted by Poon, alongside one-of-a-kind folk-art costumes designed by Cheung, some of which feature traditional Nantong blue calico from Jiangsu province, incorporating modern design into traditional materials to demonstrate the power of guochao, or the rising China cultural tide.
Inspired by the mantle and alms bowl of a Buddhist monk, the bowls and clothing on display showcase the truth, goodness and beauty of nature. In particular, some of the ceramic bowls were crafted with Poon painting them with elements related to the 24 Chinese solar terms and the idea of positivity in life.
The exhibition is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to the diversification of art and culture, providing a platform for promoting extensive exchange and cooperation among local and international art talent. 101 Bowls – An Art Exhibition Featuring Water Poon’s Art & Romy Cheung’s Fashion at Sands Gallery is open to the public 11 a.m.-7 p.m. daily April 28-May 29, 2022.
