Exhibition details

Event Category:
,

Join the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association and Galerie Ora-Ora for an artist talk with Liu Qi on Wednesday, 23 October, from 5 pm to 7 pm. Coinciding with his first solo exhibition with the gallery, the artist will not only speak in depth about his own artistic practice, but also explain the history of figuration from different countries – particularly how portraits and its styling have influenced eastern philosophy and contemporary aesthetic standards.

Understanding the significance of the figures within Liu’s paintings is the first step to recognise his artistic approach. His figures are often emotionless, with loosely defined faces, bodies and poses. Instead, the artist focuses on visual accents, like the hairstyles and clothing of the figures.

Liu’s works also evoke the zen qualities of ‘quietness’, ‘control’ and ‘calmness’. He once said, “Life is not tasteful until people use their passion to experience the hidden meaning within. Painting is the same; it requires people to openly feel with their hearts.”
