Memories with Fringe Club 與藝穗會的回憶

The first thing I remember about the Fringe Club is my three solo exhibitions there in 2002, 2011 and 2013. 

My first solo exhibition there was in 2002, it was called “4 Dimensions of Art” showing four different media of my artworks which are sculpture, oil painting, Chinese painting, Chinese calligraphy and the fusion of East & West. It was actually showing my art exploration at that time, developing from my traditional Chinese art roots towards the western art and created the “Fusion of East & West” style.

My second solo exhibition was in 2011 after I had just finished the International Sculpture Symposium in Changchun, China.  It was my first time to join this kind of large-scale international monumental sculpture symposium with 104 sculptors from all over the world. Therefore, besides exhibiting my own sculptures and paintings, I also put up a giant poster showing the sculptures of the symposium.

The information about the work I have submitted:

Title: “Windows – Reflections of Hong Kong Scenes”

 

Medium: Oil on Canvas with a real window frame mounting on the painting.

 

Concept:

This is a typical window scene showing sign boards everywhere in Hong Kong as if you are looking out from your window.  One may see the overwhelming of the over-crowded sign broads covered the whole window with a bit of exaggeration. A real wooden window frame is mounted on the painting that makes it even more surreal!

 

Now I am working on the theme of COVID-19. 

 

The painting is obviously about COVID-19 with the medical N95 mask in the centre of the painting. All the different masks are painted with different countries’ flags to symbolise people are all suffering from the COVID-19. The whole painting is subtly covered with a window frame with the white burry effect of a window scene. The green COVID-19 viruses are splashing all over the painting as the viruses are spreading around the world.
