As Hong Kong slowly begins to return to a new norm, Alisan Fine Arts is excited to take this opportunity to support the local art community by showcasing the works of 28 local artists. Many of these paintings and sculptures were created over the last 6 months during extremely unsettling times for the city.
This lively exhibition will highlight the diversity and talent of these local individuals, bringing attention and thought to what defines a Hong Kong artist. With a rich history as a backdrop, the question of whether there is a common thread that links this group of artists may be seen in the correlation between context and independent artistic growth. Spanning close to three quarters of a century between the exhibitors, we hope to explore and illuminate this question. Working with various forms of media ranging from ink on paper, seen in the works by masters Lui Shou- Kwan, Irene Chou, Fang Zhaoling, Wucius Wong, Kan Tai-Keung, Fung Ming-Chip, to multimedia such as steel, ceramic, bamboo and digital media by sculptors Kum Chi-Keung, Man Fung-Yi, Rosanna Li, Danny Lee, Mok Yat-San and Fiona Wong. In addition, we will also have artwork displayed by emerging artists Cherie Cheuk, Zhang Xiaoli and Ling Pui- Sze, Hui Hoi-Kiu.
Since its founding in the 1980's, Alisan Fine Arts has been exhibiting the paintings of many established local artists and is proud to continue to work with them as they develop and progress through their prolific careers. Through this exhibition, we are also excited to be showcasing a younger generation of local Hong Kong artists who we look forward to promoting and supporting as they evolve.
Presented over a period of 3 months, a series of monthly talks will be organized in conjunction with the exhibition. Artists and scholars will be invited to discuss the topic of HK artists and illuminate on opinions regarding their future in an ever-changing art scene.
