A Thousand Hamlets | Arts amid pandemic: Colors of hope illuminate grey times
By Ang Li & Hao Li & Tom Wan
With canceled exhibitions and closed galleries, the art industry has been hit hard by the pandemic. In spite of this, Illuminati Fine Art is presenting Wong Sau Ching’s exhibition "Beyond the Senses" through Jan. 31, 2021, in Central, Hong Kong. The exhibition features 24 pieces of oil paintings by the artist in the past three years, demonstrating his new ways of artistic expression.
Born in Fujian, China in 1954, Wong moved to HK in 1978. As a well-known HK visual artist, Wong tries to reveal the inner world of one's subconsciousness with seemingly disordered and abstract pictures. This time, just like Wong's paintings, from "maximalist" to "minimalist", the pops of color can bring comfort, energy, and hope to people struggling in the haze. Let's watch the video and explore the colorful world Wong creates!
