KAN, Kit-keung

Dr. Kan Kit-Keung is a man of science and art. By profession, he is a physicist whose research concentrates on the building of a model to describe nature. As an artist, Kan's description of nature focuses on its visual and external order. Using traditional painting techniques such as ¡§tsun" (texture) strokes and motifs, Kan delineates our visual world, minimized his hills and mountains, and gives his landscape a new sense of order and rhythm reminiscent of a modern architecture. By inserting a sense of lyricism into the abstract geometry and logic, Kan's art is redefining the fundamental building blocks of nature. The result is both enticing and visually stunning.

KWOK, Ying

Kwok Ying's works focus on patterns and how different combination of simple forms can generate broader visual connotation. A physical artist who likes to use heavy industrial materials and labor-intensive works, Kwok applies pencil or ink on canvas that is pre-treated with a layer of ceramic clay. The artist creates repetitive patterns of organic or textile origins, at times imitating everyday fabrics while sometimes resembling animal skins. The finished pieces exert a unique sense of lightness and heaviness, masculinity and femininity reflective of the artist's character. In 2001, Kwok Ying won a Fine Art Award at the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition and, in 2002, the Hong Kong Museum of Art acquired two of her works, making her one of the youngest artists ever collected.

KWONG, Wing-kwan

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. 

2013

 


KONG, Yiu-wing

Kong Yiu-wing interests on unnoted spaces that possibly lie on the border of city. His painting, “Border”, is a piece that utilizes the Google Map to seek for scenery in the border between urban and nature. What separates urban and nature are not only physical rules and psychological constraints established by powers in a city, it also includes technology, which aims at the advancement of human lives.

KOON, Wai-bong

Similar to looking at a roll of film through a carousel, Koon Wai-bong's painting leads our eyes to each frame while our brain tries to comprehend the logics and structure. As willow, pines, rivers and mountain pass by; we wander through history of the past. As urban inhabitant, we constantly seek idyllic refuge. In front of our eyes Koon's world becomes the perfect escape as we linger in his meditative realm. Any attempt to impose mundane rationale is in vain. At the end, we are left with admiration of the beauty of each episode.

LAM, Yau-sum

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.
