Adriane Strampp is returning again this year to Art Central with Hill Smith Gallery for Hong Kong Art Week, along with gallery artists Melinda Schawel and Yanni Floros.

The Fair’s extensive gallery line-up will showcase striking works from across the globe, illustrating the diversity and prodigious talent of artists within today’s contemporary art market.
Adriane Strampp explores the theme of the Romantic landscape, the intangible and the evocative, the search for a sense of place, and the desire for connection, a reflection of her own peripatetic background.

It traces both the literal and the emotional journey of a landscape remembered, the search for familarity, and explores triggers that help us connect the past with the present.
