THE LIVING THREAD OF HONG KONG
Wong Hau Kwei｜Shen Ping｜Yick Hang
The land and sea of Hong Kong are where its culture and history take place. It is also the carrier of the memory of the entire city for its people. Whether it is the architecture or cityscapes, they deliver the cultural heritage and vitality of Hong Kong, which fill a rich symbol to every piece of it. In the beginning of 2022, Art of Nature is delighted to present “The Living Thread of Hong Kong” Exhibition at Gallery by the Harbour (Harbour City) on 5th Jan. It will showcase the ink and watercolor works, conveying their sentiments related to Hong Kong, from Wong Hai Kwei, Shen Ping and Yick Hang. The exhibition is on view until 16th Jan.
Based on their own lives and knowledge of Hong Kong, Wong Hau Kwei, Shen Ping and Yick Hang capture Hong Kong in different periods and scenes with their unique styles. The works carry a resonance and strong love for the city. Wong’s rendering of mountains, water, and fogs shows Hong Kong’s natural beauty: its tranquility and delicacy, ethereal and majestic, characterizing Hong Kong’s vastness and spirit of tolerance. His ink works combine Chinese and Western aesthetics; his rare choices of color and perspectives become his art symbols. Shen Ping’s expression of time passing in Hong Kong is a multi-cultural blend, colorful and close to the experience and scenes of urban life. Taking inspiration from photos of old streets neighborhood, the world-class urban architecture, and the prestigious Victoria Harbour, Shen’s quick-witted painting documented frames of Hong Kong. Yick Hang pursues an unpretentious and fresh realm in her ink works. The rendering ink and abstract lines express the hazy beauty of Victoria Harbour and buildings over the city. The cityscape and its happening, combined with the artist’s innocent spirit, convey her unconfined artistic language.
With their love for and memories of the city, three artists deliver phases and atmospheres of Hong Kong in their series of works, connecting the living thread that supports the momentum of this city’s urban life.
