Donna Art & Consulting is a Taipei-based art consultancy that holds regular art shows and educational events concerning art appreciation and investment. Composing Equator features 22 works by eight artists from the Philippines and Indonesia. The show takes on a complex layering of references from literature — particularly the Bible — and the field of economics, which ties together a collective reflection of people and family. Yunizar is an established Indonesian artist who primarily works with acrylic and pencil to explore the realm of texture, color, stroke and rhythm. His three untitled works of acrylic on canvas depict imaginative representations of human figures that seem to speak of a space of the subconscious. Eddy Susanto is an award-winning Indonesian artist whose work reflects upon the negotiation between the global and the local, and the importance of understanding between different cultures. Javanese Cultural Contradiction of Adam Smith relates Scottish economist and philosopher Adam Smith’s writing in The Wealth of Nations to the economy of food markets in Indonesia. Miguel Paulo Borja is a Filipino visual artist whose work retains deep influences of impressionism and surrealism. His nine, thickly caked and aggressively painted human portraits capture a dynamic flow of abstraction, form and tension.

A cross-generational exhibition of six Taiwanese artists at Eslite Gallery will end on Sunday. The show, Su Wong-shen with His Young Friends, features veteran artist Su Wong-shen (蘇旺伸) and five younger colleagues who represent the generation born in the 80s and early 90s. Su is a painter whose work is fueled by his deep feelings for Taiwan. His works trace an ongoing reflection on art, life, society and culture. In this exhibition, Su presents new charcoal drawings on paper that depart from his usual method of composition. Suck is a monochromatic drawing that depicts a black dog connected to an abstract cluster thread by a bent straw. Cheung Ngan-leong (張銀亮) is a printmaker and painter who often draws from his experience of travel and sojourn in different cities. Through her work, she expresses a special sensitivity to architectural environments and cultural and psychological processes in urban spaces. Huang Hua-chen (黃華真) is a painter who is interested in the study of emotional dynamics in human relationships and the potential of freedom and individuality in this context.
