An unusual, elegant "embossed relief" print on heavy grayish-tan earth-tone hand-made paper that appears almost like tooled leather, or parchment, featuring in the design organic forms such as leaves, signed at lower right in Chinese characters and in Roman letters by the artist, HA BICK CHUEN (1925-2009) (also known as XIA BIQUAN). The work, dated 1975 adjacent to the signature, is numbered at lower left 26/50. It measures 28" by 23 3/4" (31 1/4" by 26 1/2" in hardrock maple box style frame with Plexi). The self-taught artist exhibited for decades, beginning in the 1970's, in Asia, Europe and the United States. He became quite well known for his sculptures (one of which brought $9,000 at Sotheby's) and his love of collage and assemblage. The artist's enormous archive of photographs he took himself, and a near obsession with the printed visual image, which he avidly collected, is considered an important resource in Hong Kong, where it is now stored and undergoing cataloguing. He often incorporated imagery featuring leaves, and ropes, as is seen here. The leaves appear almost like fossils seen in rocks. See the net for much information on this highly talented yet underrated artist. Affordable prices for his print work, in light of his relatively recent death, suggests that a full appreciation of his considerable talents has not yet occurred. Allow for a few reflections in the Plexi.
