It is with great excitement that The Cat Street Gallery presents the hotly anticipated solo exhibition Eurasia, showcasing the latest body of work by the hugely talented French artist, Pascal Dombis.

Returning to Hong Kong with his second exposition at the gallery, Pascal’s latest series of hypnotic works pack a powerful sensory punch, pairing intensive technological processes with a fascination for exploring a visual paradox.

Pascal executes his unique approach to interpreting the complexities of visual environments with continual originality. Whether creating lenticulars, light drawings, video works or installation, the paradoxical imagery which faces the viewer creates a strange feeling - one of intrigue, uncertainty and a strange satisfaction. For it is in the ever-shifting qualities of the layered convoluted shapes and symbols within the works that make the viewer truly aware that it is he or she that alters what he or she sees.

It is thrilling for us to represent such an artist here, particularly in Asia as it is a place key to this series of works - where a philosophical meeting of ‘East’ and ‘West’ results in a powerful aesthetic. This is highly detailed work built on a huge conceptual scale - charting an allegorical journey across a ‘continuous continent’ - cemented by the ideas of great philosophers like Nietzsche and great artist like Beuys. Pascal displays an unmistakable talent and vision for a new way of seeing: finding a coexistence between order and chaos in a post-modern world.

Powered by self-designed algorithms or through harnessing a multitude of images from the internet and Google, Pascal’s climactic yet unpredictable ‘immense digital tapestries’ have set his artwork apart form any other. Acquired by both international museums and private collectors alike, Pascal Dombis has an unwavering effect on those who see his pieces and read into the questions posed. We greatly look forward to bringing such an exciting body of work to Asia, and invite everyone to come and see this unmissable exhibition for themselves.
