Cheng Hung Explores the Notion of Eternity in The Sunset Lasts Forever
Why We Recommend it
Hong Kong artist Cheng Hung holds her solo exhibition of 12 new charcoal paintings at a.m. space in Sheung Wan.
As the inaugural exhibition at the newly relocated a.m. space in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong artist Cheng Hung’s solo exhibition The Sunset Lasts Forever is a thought-provoking reflection on the concept of eternity.
The 12 charcoal paintings on display are a collective exploration on the intricate relationships between light, shadow and space. The ambiguity and dreamy quality of Cheng’s monochromatic paintings further reinforce the feelings of bittersweetness when one catches a glimpse of the fleeting sunset – the very inspiration for Cheng’s works in this exhibition.
Cheng Hung is a Hong Kong artist known for her use of charcoal. Beneath the black and white aesthetics of her works are a sense of warmth that depicts a calm and highly personal realm.
