Hakgojae Gallery is pleased to present works by Tom ANHOLT (b. 1987, Bath, U.K.) in his solo exhibition, Fallen Flower at Hakgojae Gallery and Hakgojae OROOM (online.hakgojae.com) from October 27th (Wed) to November 21st (Sun), 2021. Tom ANHOLT is an internationally recognized painter. He has held solo exhibitions in various cities around the world including London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, etc., and received great attention. This exhibition is his second at Hakgojae Gallery, after two years since his first solo show in Asia at Hakgojae Cheongdam in 2019. Tom ANHOLT weaves an intricate narrative net by overlapping personal experiences and imagined stories with references from various art-historical sources. The title, Fallen Flower signifies the single blossom that has fallen from its stem. Through his unique artistic language, Tom ANHOLT realizes the narrative of a love story – romantic, yet unstable and at times, violent, even. 24 recent paintings are on view for this exhibition. The geometric picture screen, composed through cinematic sensibility is mystical.
