'THE MYSTICS' is Standing’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, and presents a unique showcase of works, charting the progression over the last six years of his practice. Moving from early paintings to more recent pieces, all explore his fascination with the darker recesses of humanity and the natural world.

Born in Zimbabwe, based in Sydney and now more recently in Honk Kong, Standing’s iconic and haunting paintings have developed along a complex path of progression. Driven by an innate compulsion to paint, Standing explores tension felt by a personal search for identity, embodied by complexities felt by a mass consciousness – one which has been left with toxic traces of colonialism.
