    Landscape

    'Inspired by the resilience of Hong Kong people in the 1960’s, my art installations are not simple representations but rather imaginary skylines of the city. Made from locally selected manufacturing materials, the objects selected mark a significant era of Hong Kong manufacturing over the past 50 years. Each diorama represents a small but fascinating story to celebrate the history of struggle and self reliance of Hong Kong.'

    People in the street of Hong Kong (2013-2015) - Stickers from paintings - Size variable

    ‘I believe people in the streets of contemporary cities have lost both their individuality and personality and find themselves alienated in these overcrowded societies. I work from photographic snapshots and then from digital images and projections to produce my paintings. I am trying to illustrate clearly that these people inhabit the same time and space as myself. I want to show their character and uniqueness to others, to find again the connections between people that are so easily lost.’

    A Tree in Austin Road

    In his multi panel work A Tree in Austin Road  Halley Cheng chose to paint a familiar tree found throughout the streets of Hong Kong as Cheng believes the best stories of Hong Kong lies in familiar images like these local trees. Cheng regards this series as his self-portraits, a metaphor for his attachment with local society. The title of his work is always the location of the trees. Cheng finds his concept similar to the hotel philosophy. Hotel Stage is exploring positive directions and contributions that art can bridge and facilitate in local relationships. It looks to establish and strengthen the connections between Yau Ma Tei and adjacent neighborhoods.

    Street Life in Yau Ma Tei

    The people of Yau Ma Tei witness rapid changes and developments that are taking place within the district. They also observe changing events that collectively make up stories of this vibrant community. Kwong Man Chun uses the simplest of techniques, line sketches and shading to record the daily lives of these local residents. His keen eye and sensitive observations capture both unique and complex details of the inhabitants of the Yau Ma Tei and Jordan neighborhoods. Man Chun’s vision is to place a series of large scale individual drawings in the guest rooms of Hotel Stage to populate these spaces with the character of the local community.

    Under the Banyan Tree

    'For me the story of any community begins where people of the community gather and relax. Such are the distinguishing and unique features one can find under the beautiful trees of Tin Hau Public Park Square in Yau Ma Tei community. I use the symbol of the sparrow – a very common but enduring bird as a symbol of the community.'

    Visiting the Place with Jade Peaks and The Flaming Moon Lights up the Earth

    ‘My two mural works combine both Chinese ink painting with surrealistic and abstract expressionistic styles borrowed from Western painting. The figurative elements are derived from real images, windows and doors inspired by the residential areas in Yau Ma Tei, the Jade Market and stores in Temple Street. The definition between interior and exterior space in my murals - both realistic and psychological - are blurred. To me, this makes the atmosphere of my work more engaging and complex.’

    The Banyan of Yau Ma Tei

    The Banyan of Yau Ma Tei is more than a local landmark. It is a place where the local community gathers and shares joy and laughter. It is a place where stories of Yau Ma Tei are told and heard. The Banyan of Yau Ma Tei at Hotel Stage are crafted from recycled wood gathered from the local community. Old scratches and rough textures found on this wood are evidence of hardships and endurance of the local workers in the neighourhood. This artwork at Hotel Stage allows greater cultural exchanges between the local community and guests from all walks of life, thus inspiring us all to tell our own stories.
