Michael Lau –- ‘Remember-disc’ * Time-Table (5.15)

 Title art for Michael Lau exhibition (lo res)

Urban vinyl pioneer Michael Lau will present a new body of work for his ‘Remember-disc’ – Time-Table solo during Art Basel HK weekend.  Opening with a private reception on May 15th at his pop-up gallery in Causeway Bay, the show is a reflection on the important lessons and qualities of life through visual interpretations of quotes that have impressed, move, and challenged  Lau over the years.  The new collection will feature 44 circular pieces tying into the ‘Remember-disc (this)’ portion of the title and a subtle recognition of his recent birthday.  Known in large part for his 3D work, Lau will also feature sculptural work in the form of ‘table’ –- once again as a way of considering time, in particular the short amount each of us is given to make a difference.

Michael Lau || ‘Remember-disc’ * Time-Table
May 15th – June 1st 2014

Jermaine Rogers – Make Your ‘Choices’ this Summer


During Easter weekend it might be heard to believe that not all bunnies lay multi-colored speckled eggs.  In fact, Jermaine Roger’s rabbits just might lay you out instead. First shown in proto form at last year’s SDCC, Jermaine’s Choices figure is on track for a summer release in vinyl. Digitally sculpted by Bigshot Toyworks, this one should be high up on collectors’ buy list.
