Hong Kong Art School @ Ink Asia 2017

Date & Time:
15/12/2017 - 16/12/2017  From 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
17/12/2017  From 11:00 am to 6:00 pm

Ink Asia, the only international art fair devoted to contemporary ink art, will be held from 15-17 December 2017 at Hall 5B of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. As the first-time exhibitor of this art fair, the School will be showcasing a collection of most exclusive artworks created by our artist-alumni at the Booth C13.

This is an exceptional cross-over among three established artists, who are also alumni of Hong Kong Art School, Ms. Carol Lee Mei Kuen, Ms. Rachel Cheung and Ms. Ivy Ma. The showcase brings together their representational art pieces, which are the result of their unique ways of exploration across different media. All works capture and share a sense of untold rhythm. The paper-based records of time and light by Carol Lee Mei Kuen, the delicate curves created from clay by Rachel Cheung, and the reinterpretation of cinematographic images by Ivy Ma, all of them carry a subdued and sentimental touch.

Artwork statements from our artist-alumni

Carol Lee Mei Kuen
Graduate, Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art)(2002, Painting Major) & Master of Fine Art (2007)
Carol has been incorporating the elements of light and time into her paper-based works since 2005. She records time and light in a unique way, leaving dust-like traces and soft silhouettes across the papery surface. She makes reference to Japanese shoji window for her work to be showcased this time, playfully implying the presence of light.

Rachel Cheung
Graduate, Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (2001, Ceramics Major)
The ceramic works by Rachel are known for their delicate quality and sense of fluidity. Between the crescent shape and the full circle, the works to be showcased this time again spark the quest for balance.

Ivy Ma
Graduate, Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (2002, Painting Major)
Ivy has started working on her series of cinematographic images since 2011. On the print-outs featuring still-life images from films, the printing ink is selectively erased, giving rise to layers and textures. Drawing is also applied to enrich the images.
