Print-Rite’s Artify Gallery Showcases Contemporary Photo Printing

According to UTec, Print-Rite launched Artify Gallery as an incubator for the art of contemporary print and paper works by talented designers. The Gallery is exhibiting the photographic works of Hungarian artist, Bence Bakonyi from 13th February to 20th March 2014.

As has been revealed, the exhibition showcases “Cognitio”, a series of new photographs that Bakonyi completed during his short residence in Dunhuang and Zhangye Danxia in 2013. Also, his key series “Dignity”, a striking insight into the artist’s personal struggles and experience, is exhibited in the Gallery. In addition to representing symbols of freedom, liberation and transubstantiation, UTec notes that Bakonyi’s collection explores human existence, the relationship between body and mind, and how human life blends into natural landscapes.

UTec explains that “the Gallery aims to collaborate with emerging artists to provide access to new methodologies for production, opening channels from contemporary photo printing to more traditional forms such as etching, lithography, ink art, silkscreen and woodblock printing”.

Cherry Ho, Director of Artify Gallery, says, “At the core of Artify’s ethos is the aim to build long term relationships with artists from the formative stage of their careers and as their practices develop. Through our platform, we also hope to increase access to the visual arts by running a series of educational programs that seek to bridge and enrich local communities.”
