—Agnes Wu, Curator & Gallery Manager

We are delighted to announce the official launch of YA! Young Art platform and the highly anticipated opening of its debut exhibition in Hong Kong, titled “Seeking Connections.” This captivating exhibition showcases dynamic artworks by five talented artists hailing from Hong Kong and Macau. The exhibition will run from January 18th, 2024, through February 28th, 2024, with an opening reception scheduled for January 18th from 6 to 8 pm.

Seeking Connections” invites viewers on a journey of self-discovery, delving into the depths of human emotions and the relentless pursuit of personal fulfilment. The artists, through their meticulous research of their identity, emotions, stories, memories, and surroundings, establish connections that resonate with viewers on multiple levels.

Joanne Chan‘s (b.1992 Hong Kong) art is characterized by gestural spraying and oil painting, using vibrant colours to convey the transformative journey between energy, consciousness, and non-dualism. Eric Fok (b.1990 Macau) explores Macau’s identity, capturing its transformations and postcolonial phenomena through meticulous brushwork and maps, merging space and time in a fascinating dimension. Kwan Yung Yee‘s (b.1991 Hong Kong) artworks feature clean lines, bold colours, and digital aesthetics. Inspired by the New Art Movement and Japanese prints, she incorporates stylized natural elements, creating serene compositions that evoke spirituality and inner peace. Lai Wai Lam (b.1990 Hong Kong) focuses on ink as a medium of creation. His delineative paintings (Gongbi painting) showcase meticulous shading and smudging techniques, creating quiet and persistent artworks that reflect his own temperament. Through painting and collage, Lau Sze Man (b.1995 Hong Kong) explores the interplay of imagery and text; memory and flash-ideas; illusions and creation, inviting viewers to contemplate the balance between chance and intention.

Believing that painting captures complex emotions that are not able to be thoroughly expressed verbally, the exhibition sparks curiosity and explores the profound impact of human connections. Visitors will embark on a visual journey through the exhibition, encountering works that captivate the senses and evoke introspection. Each piece carries its own narrative, inviting viewers to reflect on their own experiences and search for answers within themselves. From bold and vibrant compositions to introspective and contemplative artworks, the exhibition presents a tapestry of emotions and perspectives, highlighting the diversity of human existence.

We are thrilled to invite you to “Seeking Connections”, where you step into a world where painting unlocks the unspoken, where emotions find resonance, and where the power of human connections is celebrated in all its complexity and beauty.
