aimlessly is a kind of mental status at the moment of creation, in between distraction and attention. It seems too flighty, yet the thinking is not subject to any contexts or issues. The aim of creating is simple: when a touching spectacle appears in our daydream, we capture and represent the emotion instinctively.
Five artists use their artworks to record the moment of being inattentive.
Cheung Yung graduated with first-class honours from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2009, and graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with an MA in Visual Culture Studies in 2011. Her artworks have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan, and are privately collected.
She is interested in the narrative line and relationship between materials and subject matter. Her artwork also focuses on drawing and aims to explore this area by including new conceptual approaches.
Lam Hau Yi
Lam, a Hong Kong-based ink artist and designer, obtained her BA (Hons) Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014 and her BA (Hons) Visual Communication from Birmingham City University in 2012. She was an exchange student at the Academy of Fine Art in Tunghai University in 2013.
In Lam’s creative journey, she explores life through looking, drawing and thinking. By micro-observing highly familiar images, she redefines the perspective of seeing things and provides new meaning to seemingly trivial objects. The mundane objects in her works cultivate an aesthetic characteristic by stillness, portraying a certain degree of delicacy and beauty. Her works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Berlin.
Li obtained his BA (Hons) Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014. He is always attracted by nonsense and subtle stuff – things that are humorous in daily life. Taking photos and making small objects are his artistic practices. Both time and memory, reality and invisibility, are common elements in his works. He currently works as an artist educator for the Through Our Eyes Photography Education Programme.
Poon Mei Yee Leona
Poon obtained her BA (Hon) in Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016. She works in various visual media, such as drawing, painting and photography. She often explores the interrelationships between time and space, people and objects. Her works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Germany, Thailand and India, including local art fairs and galleries.
Wong Chun Hei
Wong graduated from the Fine Art Department at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008, and since then he has rented a studio in Fo Tan. His early paintings were inspired by scenes from video games, in order to highlight the visual impact of the virtual world, but his more recent paintings have focused on the natural landscape and scenery. Wong loves to go to the natural parts of Hong Kong to paint in the open air. By adding his own imagination, he creates paintings that reveal the relationship between humankind and Nature.
