Narration/Dialogue

[title]

A social and cognitive process involving the exchange of information via a mutual system of symbols and icons, human communication is mysterious, intricate and an art of its own. From 21 August to 17 September, local artists – Tang Ying Chi, Carol Ho, and Tsang Chui Mei explore unconventional painting techniques as a form of communication to engage and motivate viewers to take away an interpretation of their own from the joint exhibition – Narration/Dialogue.

Using words and language, below are the efforts of the three artists to engage in a dialogue with one another, and their attempt to convey their spirituality through their interaction with viewers:

Tang Ying Chi, Stella 

I am exhibiting current works, attempting to group those visual languages I have developed in the past such as abstract marks/gestural lines, realistic photographic projected images etc. Also, with references to the multi-perspective composition from Chinese Shanshuihua (landscape) paintings, I am juxtaposing a human living landscape that even I myself cannot explain.  

Carol Ho 

Through these two paintings I want to express the diverse and hyper-intensive visual textures of the city.  Instead of using a few conventional painting techniques to unify the overall composition of a painting, I choose to use various methods to apply painting materials on the surface: flat-graphic, painterly mark-marking, impasto (thick painting), different brush marks, and combine them with high colours.  All these elements contrast with one another, yet they also create a strong, dynamic visual tension in the paintings, which reflects the essence of the city’s appearance.

Tsang Chui Mei

I focus on the layering of colours and the variations of visual effects. My expression of space is chaotic and symbolic, not the interpretation of landscapes in our real world, but a kind of mental excursion.  Such an ambiguous spiritual scene, with a high level of anxiety in one’s mind, implicates the phenomenon of entanglement and disillusionment. The delicate and dense lines, not only refer to the visual elements but also a kind of generalized image: the bamboo scaffolding or sticks. They are crushing or collapsing, depicting a kind of dynamic forces that the visual rhythm is repetitively intertwined, and seemingly unsettled. The atmosphere is hustled and impetuous, whether in the brilliant or dark colour tones, created to show arising conflicts and fantasies.

Dates: 21 Aug to 17 Sept 2019
