“No Details, Not Whole” showcases Jamsen Law’s latest series of photographs created in an interdisciplinary manner, integrating elements of photography and painting, both reproduced and recast. The creation process is an act of improvisation. Law expresses himself with monochromatic forms of media like ink and charcoal, which are then converted and reproduced to images, through the skills of macro photography. This exhibition investigates into the sophisticated relationship between photography and paintings, while also gives us an opportunity to ponder upon how “real images” should be like, leaving an equivocal remark as a whole.
