Hang Art is pleased to present our annual exhibition Front Lines 6.0 introducing Lexygius Sanchez Calip and Melissa Mohammadi.

In attempts to address the concept and theory of uncertainty, Calip focuses on the experimentation and exploration of the “idea” rather than the finished outcome. Interested in the unpredictable results of working intuitively, his practice is reflective of this process of discovery. Encouraging unexpected dialogues between time and memory, Calip aims for his work to shine light on the over-looked fact that life in random.

Inspired by 15th and 16th century mille-fleur tapestries and Persian manuscript paintings, Mohammadi is interested in both their flattened landscape and the tactile space that is meditative, immersive and rigorously decorative. Enticed by the seductive qualities of gold, vellum and ink found in manuscript paintings, Mohammadi’s work is similarly inviting with her combination of fluid washes and powdery pastels.

Join us on Saturday 5 August 3-5pm for the artist reception!
