The Spirit of Art Deco (watercolor drawing on paper)

Art Deco style in a “vehicle” of Design and Architecture  The creative impulses of Art Deco leave a trademark in buildings established during the glamorous Jazz age from mid-1930’s to 1940’s. These buildings have remained a heritage of architecture up to nowadays and have never failed to impress us with the fine nuances of Art Deco in various forms, from the highly decorative classical form … Continue reading The Spirit of Art Deco (watercolor drawing on paper)

Zen on Sand (multi-media on canvas)

There are 5 pieces of Wabi-sabi work, sharing the same texture of canvas foundation, which is made with a mixture of sand and acrylic.  Using sand as a medium has a philosophical, “Wabi-sabi” dimension to it. The way that sand slips away from the slits between our fingers when you try to grasp a handful reminds us that nothing in life can actually be grasped, … Continue reading Zen on Sand (multi-media on canvas)

The Hidden Memory

    The swirl and flow of memory are represented by brushstrokes of dark ink, stark and intense, whereas the thread is the linearity leading to our hidden memory, which is represented by the intricate fabric-like texture, deliberately portrayed to be standing out from the rest of the painting. The broken rope represents the inconsistent state of memory. The rope is more visible in the … Continue reading The Hidden Memory

Communication between Artists and the Galleries

Introduction – Where Does the Line Lie? Establishing one’s own gallery may be the ultimate dream of the incalculable art-lovers and artists out there. Yet before jumping into the romantic idealization of such, one must acknowledge that running a commercial gallery may not be as free and simple as acquiring personally-favored works to hang in your apartment. After all, galleries do not merely display and … Continue reading Communication between Artists and the Galleries

Stories of Deserted Villages

  In this project, I attempted to capture my impressions on deserted villages located on outlying islands and some rural areas in the New Territories. Although my research interest Wabi-Sabi is originally a Japanese aesthetic concept, I seek inspirations of Wabi-Sabi in HK rather than relying on my travelling experiences in Japan, since I believe that Wabi-Sabi is universal. During my past visits to those … Continue reading Stories of Deserted Villages

Solitude versus Togetherness in The Hong Kong Flâneur

  The premise for the following works is based on the notion of the Flaneur.  I shall give examples of what I mean by this term in relation to my research and artworks. The French term Flâneur means strollers or loungers, and yet without the negative connotations of laziness. Rather, it conjures up the literary type of man, the “connoisseur” who strolls leisurely in the … Continue reading Solitude versus Togetherness in The Hong Kong Flâneur
