Yau Wing Fung: Illusion 邱荣丰:幻真

February 10 – March 9, 2024
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 10th, 3-6pm

We are delighted to present Yau Wing Fung’s latest solo exhibition, Illusion, where the artist’s works encapsulate a creative journey spanning the past five years, revealing ink landscapes that seamlessly transcend the boundaries of tradition and contemporaneity.

Yau Wing Fung finds artistic inspiration in the spatio-temporal aesthetics of traditional Chinese ink paintings. With each brushstroke gracefully traversing the paper, he contemplates the undulations of the landscapes, immersing himself in ancient wisdom that highlights a harmonious connection with the flow of the world. Simultaneously, his acute awareness of the shift in visual experience leads him to seamlessly interweave the classical poetic hermitude and the versatility of the digital present; his artworks whisper timeless wisdom but in contemporary terms. From the foundational Looming series to the recent Meta and Into series, Yau’s artistic creativity consistently challenges conventional modes of viewing landscapes. In Illusion, the artist delves into the rhythmic beauty and constructive qualities of traditional ink paintings, reconfiguring the pictorial space to engage with the ever-evolving human experience in the digital age, prompting contemplation that transcends our recognition of the immediate surroundings, both spatially and temporally.

The project is supported by JCCAC’s Professor Mayching Kao Arts Development Fund.
