CURRENT EXHIBITION

Serenity • Hong Kong – Wong Hau Kwei Ink Art Exhibition
凝瀞 • 香港 黃孝逵水墨藝術展

21/7─23/10/2022

“It doesn’t matter if you use avant-garde, traditional or western style; the most important thing is to convey the timely significance of the era.” – Wong Hau Kwei

The coronavirus pandemic these two years has casted a shadow of anxiety over Hong Kong. Artspace K is pleased to present “Serenity • Hong Kong”, a solo exhibition of works by prominent contemporary artist Wong Hau Kwei depicting urban and landscape images in Hong Kong. We hope our exhibition will convey a renewed sense of peace and calm.

Wong’s works blend traditional Chinese ink painting techniques and modern western aesthetics. Accentuating the contrast between black and white, opacity and luminosity in the expression of light and color, Wong establishes a distinct style that transcends ink art to a different level. By sharing his portrayals through brushstrokes and ink to reflect the atmosphere of the time, we hope that visitors can experience the unique qualities of Hong Kong.

「不論你用什麼手法,前衞、傳統或西方手法都好,我覺得最重要的是要表達到時代的風貌。」   ─黃孝逵

兩年來新冠肺炎疫情壟罩,香港瀰漫著一股不安與緊張。今年夏天Artspace K舉辦「凝瀞 • 香港」特展,邀請知名當代藝術家黃孝逵,展出香港城市景觀及自然風貌為主題的水墨作品,期盼透過他的作品能找回寧靜與祥和的感受。

黃孝逵的創作有傳統水墨的特質,又蘊含著西方現代的審美與形式,筆墨運轉著重於黑白虛實,強調光和色的表達,把水墨渲染發揮至極致,形成個人的創作風格。他把對香港面貌的觀察藉水墨呈現,將香港獨有的特色保留下來。
