Instant Reflection: Sketches of Landscapes and Life by Hong Kong Artists
Why We Recommend it
Sun Museum’s newest exhibition features around 120 sketches by 40 Hong Kong artists, some of which feature landscapes and life in Hong Kong.
Sun Museum presents Instant Reflection: Hong Kong Artists and Sketches, an exhibition jointly organised by the museum and Xiang Gang Mei Xie (The Hong Kong Art Association) in collaboration with Hong Kong Art.
The exhibition features around 120 sketches by 40 Hong Kong artists from different fields, including Wucius Wong, Wong Chau-tung, Lam Tian-xing, Hau Siu-ching, Wai King-man, Yick Hang, and Lam Shiu-chi.
The sketches displayed at the exhibition have been created using various media such as ink, oil paints, watercolour and charcoal, and depict diverse genres from urban landscapes, figures in motion to natural scenery.
Some of the pieces at the exhibition feature landscapes and life in Hong Kong, such as Wong Chau-tung’s series of sketches “Glamorous Hong Kong” which depicts the bustling streets and skyscrapers of Hong Kong with ink wash. A quieter, more peaceful side of Hong Kong is illustrated too, in Wai King-man’s “Fishing Village in Tai O,” in which the artist sketches the Tai O Fishing Village with fountain pen.
A few works exhibited, including “Figure in Motion” by Hau Siu-ching, “Waiting for the Green Traffic Light Signal” by Yick Hang, and “Temperature Check,” “Return to Hong Kong,” “Take-Away” and “Grateful” by Lam Shiu-chi capture the lives of Hongkongers during the coronavirus pandemic.
