Zaffer CHAN & Bouie CHOI – Drips of Serenity
6 April - 29 April, 2017

Grotto Fine Art proudly presents the joint exhibition Drips of Serenity by Hong Kong artists Zaffer CHAN Sui-ying and Bouie CHOI Yuk-kuen.

When we look at artworks with the genre of nature, we may forget that our relationship with the nature has changed drastically since the Industrial Revolution. As a result, with such a change in the context, we should use an updated mind-set to understand artworks using nature and landscape as the theme.

The Same Line Twice series, begun in late 2016, now extends their early efforts to bring together two externally similar yet internally very different interpretations of this mission. While the most important aspect of their art is “line”, its collaborative intention goes beyond the surface.

Wearing Identity - Group Exhibition of Hong Kong Artists
22 Jan - 14 Feb, 2015

Beyond Representation
9 - 28 Mar, 2015

The aesthetics of ink is deeply embedded in Chinese history. The medium is the bedrock of all pictorial art forms, from printmaking through calligraphy to painting. Ink art has been the manifestation of scholarly pursuit as much as Chinese thought and expression. So profound are its implications and influences that it comes as no surprise that the ink tradition should remain pivotal in the 21st Century. Between representational and expressive channels, Hong Kong artists seek revelation beyond traditional means.


 

Bouie CHOI Yuk-kuen - The Breathing Room
16 April - 9 May, 2015

Bouie Choi Yuk-kuen's series of The Breathing Room presents to the audience a surrealistic collage filled with contextual information.

15 Oct - 7 Nov, 2015

 

Grotto Fine Art takes pleasure to present the second solo exhibition, My Tiresome at the Bottom of the Valley, by Hong Kong calligrapher and painter CHUI Pui-chee. In an insinuation of the powerlessness of city folks, the artist uses lyrics from Canton Pop as his medium of emotional outlet. His running and cursive script carves the silhouettes of modern mundane life. Many of his calligraphy adopt a slender dimension in which his potent calligraphy gave a full bloom of tension. The narrow writing space also alludes to the limited freedom and grasp we have over life. Chui’s incisive depiction of the fiasco of nobody and ordinary life evokes strong resonance among those who live in mundane.

Inspired by the traces of nature, Fiona Wong's new works feature her signature combination of porcelain and light. Polygon-shaped fragments of porcelain are circumspectly woven into a neat and orderly composition with reference to beehive and cells. Fragments with center sanded down to paper thin are joined together to form a large plane which is pervious to light. To accentuate the translucency of the porcelain, a light source is to cast from behind reflecting the praise of sun that nurtures life and giving out changing hues and tones.

 


 

Hong Kong artist Wong Yee-ki is one of the few ink painters working primarily in the baimiao genre. Moving away from colorful works since her 2011 exhibition, Wong has successfully developed a new individual expression in the most abbreviated manner. Her comparative studies in the relationship between Western sketches and Chinese biamiao led to her discovery of the essence of the Chinese genre – Zen drawing.

KAN Kit-keung - Thousand Layers
13 Nov - 6 Dec 2014

Grotto Fine Art proudly presents the third solo exhibition of one of Hong Kong's leading artists, Kan Kit-keung. Kan has concentrated on the depiction of moving water, surging waves and tremendous waterfall are often his motives. The rushing and turbulent section of Potomac River inspired Kan to create paintings that mimic the rhythms of water flow. The waves are so fierce that create foams running in every direction. They seem chaotic at first but are endowed with rhythms upon further observations. Kan skillfully captures the moment and turns the rhythms into static paintings.

 

 

 

Grotto Fine Art proudly presents the dialogue between three great modern Hong Kong masters, Lu Shou-kun, Wucius Wong and Kan Tai-keung and the tradition of landscape paintings. Painted with literati sentiment, the three masters extended the ink traditions with modern visions.

 

 

 

Eunice CHEUNG - The Bird Catchers
18 Dec 2014 - 10 Jan 2015

In lieu of depicting precious and auspicious creatures that are only found in the palace, Eunice Cheung extended the fine traditions of Gongbi Huaniao to commonly seen animals and wildlife. The theme of The Bird Catchers sets on the hunting of birds due to predator's fascination for the beauties and freedom represented by these flying friends. The human hunting for birds and birds hunting for their own kinds are embodied as a metaphor for Eunice to criticize the selfish and unlimited desire and greed.

 

 

 

 


 

 

LAM Yau-sum - CityScape
20 Mar - 20 April, 2013

 

Lam Yau-sum's new miniature landscape provides an interesting interpretation of this ironic question. Using a computer circuit board as the sculpture's main frame, Lam painstakingly removes the wirings from the board and “rewires” them into a tree. The tree becomes the focus. It wraps around and sometimes penetrates the frame, turning it into a landscape scene stabilizing by melted solder. A figure is positioned to give perspective and scale. The three components – circuit board, tree and figure – serve to interact and create a miniature scene of everyday life.

 


Hong Kong artist Chui Pui-chee is a leading calligrapher equipped with exceptional repertoire and expertise. Competent in a wide range of scripts, Chui's calligraphy exerts a dynamic and vigorous quality; while his painting derives from the structure of calligraphic fundamentals. Through their juxtaposition and interaction, Chui creates amusing new works that redefine both genres. Among all calligraphy scripts, Chui favors xing shu(running script) due to its con- trol yet expressive qualities.


Grotto Fine Art takes great pleasure in presenting Landscape Revisited, a joint exhibition of Lucille Lo and Kong Yiu-wing. Featuring works in mixed media using different materials ranging from oil paint, ink, paper, wood. Landscape Revisited present a profound view into cultural, civilization and social change by utilizing symbolic material in their unique painting style.


 

Arise from the absence of clouds; clear-air turbulence is a rare yet dangerous weather condition undetectable by radar or flesh eye.  Such unpredictability is employed by Hong Kong artist Kwong Wing-kwan as an analogy to the vulnerability of human-being in face of fate.

 

 


 


Among Hong Kong contemporary ink artists, Koon is renowned for the full infusion of his spiritual mind through the features of nature and the tranquil ambiance. In lieu of filling in every corner with meticulous brushes, Koon tends to leave vast negative space to embrace the beauty of nothingness and narrates minimalism. Viewers dwelled in the landscapes will be intrigued to see beyond the visuals. The virtual refuge created among the rocks, pines and streams liberates folks from the hectic city life and purify our minds. 

 


 

Hong Kong artist Wai Pong-yu continues to propel ink genre to a rhythmic poetry in line with expressionism. His almost ritual, meticulous line drawings done by a ball pen transmits an abstract expression and power through an unspoken bizarreness. Fierce and dynamic, Wai's lines constantly grow and expand beyond the vision. They form organic plantations and streams, shades and light, and even figural depictions, then fade in quiet. Relentlessly, Wai's lines transpose through ages and contemporary boundaries.

 

 


 

Kevin FUNG Lik-yin - SCAPE
18 Dec 2013 - 7 Jan 2014

On display will be a body of works in wood, bronze with ready-made objects that showcases the mindscape of the artist.
