  • Artist: Wong Chun Hei
    Title: Sunflower
    Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
    Size: 140 cm (H) x 210 cm (W)
    Art description I often walk around slowly inside the video game world until noticing a beautiful landscape scenery, then I will start painting it. Numbers of people have asked me this question, 'Why don't you just paint the "real" landscape rather than this fictitious space?' My answer is that the paintings I done are about the world more realistic than the "real" one. Today, we can easily find people playing with their portable video games when they are on train or on the road. I can judge that those people would get closer with the natural area in video game's world than the one which our bodies can touch with. And although people who play the video games can go through many places in it, their mind of participation in game are bound by the original game rules, thus it is passive in nature. What I am now doing is to set up my own game rule inside the fictitious world. I prefer choosing action games, such as car racing games which require the player to drive fast to compete with others, I will just drive slowly and look for pretty scenery, my works ' Toril', 'Sunflower" and 'The lake' are painted with this rule.
    Artist bio Learned drawing in Guangzhou when Wong Chun Hei was in form two, making him understand the importance of entire in art making. Graduated from FAA CUHK in 2008, Chun Hei rent a studio in Fotan to continue his art, mainly painting from the scenery of Video Games

  • Artist: Lam Tin Na
    Title: Sublimed Memories 2
    Medium: Mixed media on wood
    Size: 65cm x 60 cm
    Art description Canvas is like a stage for me to consolidate my memory and my feeling. Through the act of painting, I record my seeing and experiences, which sometimes are even from my dreams of it. Fragmented and forgotten memories in the dreams and reality are juxtaposed, gathered and reconstructed into a form of existence that lies in between the realm of real and unreal. This series of "Sublimed Memories" was inspired by the seasonal change of London, where I tried to consolidate my feeling on the wood. Through a constrained selection of materials and techniques, limited use of colour, I focused my attention to detail and explored the intrinsic quality and texture of the media itself, which lead to much more engaging imaginative terrains.
    Artist bio Tina Lam ATCL(piano) ATCL(violin) BA(hons)(CUHK) MA(CSM) Tina Lam was born in Hong Kong in 1984. She was trained to be a musician since she was 6, learning violin and piano.

During her high school years, her aptitude in fine arts manifested in acrylic painting which her works were recognised among practitioners that she was awarded numerous prizes including the South China Morning Post: Student Artist of the Year 2004 - the most prestigious award to student artist in Hong Kong. In her studies in Chinese University of Hong Kong, where she was awarded the Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2008, she continued to explore her interest in acrylic but also were exposed in a variety of media, including ceramics which she was obsessed in. In the succeeding year, she further her studies in Central Saint Martins, where she studied with Sally O'Reilly and Alex Landrum.

    Title: Hey
    Medium: Artists' name cards (32 designs, 200 each), collage on wall
    Size: 243cm x 457cm
    Art description in January 2010 I was invited to participated a group show which featured 32 artists from Hong Kong and Guangzhou. The group show was a part of a festival which stressed the importance of cultural exchange between 2 cities. Failing to know most of the artists of the list and willing to stop myself from embarrassment on the opening night. I started to "google" every artists background, yet all these "research" became the medium of my work. I used the information I found from the internet to design the name cards for every artists on the show. Half of the name cards I produced were used to create a collage work with a hallow Chinese character of "hey" ("hello" equivalent for Southern Chinese) in the middle. The other half of the name cards were given to each exhibiting artists during the opening night as gifts.
    Artist bio  Damon TONG obtained his BA (Fine Arts) from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) / The Art School, Hong Kong Arts Centre in 2008 with a major in painting. He served as exhibition co-ordinator for "White Tube" of Hong Kong Art School between 2005 and 2009. On the same year at 2009 he and his friend together established "Rental United", a collective which focuses on collaborative experimentation.

  • Artist: Lee Kai Chung
    Title: The Lost Roads no.14
    Medium: Pigment print
    Size: 150 x 98 cm
    Art description A road / passage is defined by the daily behavior and habit of human being, on the other hand, the human existence transcends the merely geographic location and transforms it from "place" into "space". Michel de Certeau first creates the term "Narrative action", which relates to the human behavior that can generate stories. He claims that is a practice of organizing and developing space effectively, in the sense that it rephrases the "place" in a particular time frame and makes it relational. In the past thirty years, the Hong Kong government has been pruning over 300 roads in the record of Highways department, the official reason is large scale construction projects, including domestic housing and commercial buildings. The post-colonial city planning forces the "space" to push away history, as a result, stories are lost, and consequently human behavior is restrained by the stereotype of metropolitan city. "The Lost Roads" is a series of photographs, in which I document the lost roads sites, and present the relationship between the missing and existing stories. The non-durable quality of the photographs enhances the idea of this piece as a city monument.
    Artist bio Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lee was graduated in BA Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is fascinated by the relationship of time, space and human beings. His recent photography project, The Lost Roads, is about the physical, social and contextual transformation of space, and he further investigate how local inhabitants react to the gradual change of the post-colonial government policy. The sequence of his project work involves scrupulous planning, research and execution, and yet he does not reject randomness and chance encounter throughout the art making process. He is currently working on mockumentary project, Unwelcome Visitors, which is about the history of his home and some unseen visitors that he has been living with him since he was born.

    Title: Three Long and Two Short
    Medium: Acrylic, chinese ink on canvas
    Size: 100 X 70 cm
    Art description "Three Long and Two Short" is actually a direct English translation of a Chinese idiom which means "accident". In the picture, five animals are painted honestly in a realistic style which is combined by Chinese delineative painting and western painting skill where with a contrast of three beasts (strength) and two innocent animals(weakness). It is to think about what if or if two different cultures or simply languages can talk at the same time as the title of the painting, to a person who does not understand this idiom, can only be a visual image. A plain white color applied on the background is a kind of space left for one's imagination which is actually one of the Chinese philosophy.
    Artist bio  I am a normal person just interested in drawing. I enjoy doing Chinese and western art which bring me to a peaceful place where I have unlimited time to think about life and to talk to nature. I always dream to live and play with wild animals while somehow I think human is foolish. The world of art let me breathe freely and think deeper, that is why I am living in it.
