Limbo by Ale’gore” is an exhibition of artworks that cut across the full spectrum of style, genre and medium, each provides pricing options that are reasonable both to seasoned and new collectors.

The title Limbo is chosen to reflect the transient state between drawing and painting. It carries a connotation of uncertainty befitting the uncertainty in art, for example in defining a drawing and a painting. While drawings are generally accepted as finished artwork and exhibited extensively alongside paintings in the contemporary art scene, the fact remains that drawings are remarkable. It is essentially the very first creative spark, the raw representation of an idea that is then nurtured and developed by the artist into something more define. For this collective of artists, this exhibition celebrates ideas, from its conception and evolution to become the full fruition of that initial spark. The range of artwork has the raw quality without shying away from being a finished product.

You are invited to enter the artists’ minds and share their passion. It’s a strong motivator to those who love art and care about exploring the thoughts of the artists.

Artelier Gallery will host the opening on Wednesday, April 2nd and an art talk on the 2nd week, Wednesday April 23rd. It will be open to public on the April 2nd for 40 days. Officiator for this event will be the artist, Mr Ahmad Zakii Anwar.
