EMERGENTISM, in philosophy, defined as a property that an object or a system express more properties or behavior than the sum of the properties of the individual parts. Such emergent properties can be found everywhere in nature. Each grain of sand is hard and crystallized, however, a pile of sand emergents a properties of softness and yellowish in colour. Each individual has his/her own characters but there have totally different characters in a society of individuals.
In this exhibition, EMERGENTISM, we found a group of artists who turned away from the trends of themes or composition on the canvas. They concentrated their mind on the smallest possible elements in their works. Through a meditation-like mind of execution with immense hardship and tedious work, their works emerge a new property of expression that beyond the sum of the properties of their individual elements. It is their exploration into such secret beauty of creation and the hardshipness that the artist experienced, gives us a breath-taking works that tickle the deep inner mind of our consciousness.
