Miraculous Variation, Beyond Boundaries
Chan Shing Kau’s Modern Ink
Cheer Bell Gallery is honoured to hold “Miraculous Variation, Beyond Boundaries – Chan Shing Kau’s Modern Ink” solo exhibition for renowned Hong Kong artist Mr. Chan Shing Kau. You are cordially invited to attend the vernissage dated 13 May 2019. We are proud to have Mr.Lam Tian Xing, Chairman of Xiang Gang Mei Xie and Committee Member of China Artists Association, Mr. TANG Hoi-chiu, former chief curator of Hong Kong Museum of Art and Mr. Ricky Cheung Chun Wai, Head of Mortgage Sales (Branch) Bank of China to be our officiating guest for the ceremony with the presence of Artist. We look forward to seeing you in the event.
“Miraculous Variation, Beyond Boundaries”, which means infinitely changing imagery beyond boundaries in Chan’s modern ink art, is extracted from The Theory of Six Chirography written by master of Chinese calligraphy in Tang Dynasty, Zhang Huai Guan. “Roots of Heaven and Earth” and “Tracing Series” have been selected meticulously for this exhibition, showcasing the artist’s profound knowledge in merging Chinese calligraphy, painting and “Father of Modern Ink”, Mr. Liu Kuo Sung’s techniques and art theories.
The “Roots of Heaven and Earth” series conveys aesthetics of Chinese traditional culture. Chan once talked about his creative concept in a publication, saying that in order to express “the tension of white lines”, he searched for traces of fluids (reserving in white) flowing slowly on the rice paper (tinted with black). With semi-abstract and freely meandering lines, symbolic cursive scripts which resembled the vastness of earth and hilly mountains emerged, thus forming a unique sentiment for hills and natural tension of white lines which moved the audiences. Chan has been exploring “A Discussion on the Dynamism of White Lines” advocated by Liu and picked up his techniques such as “water frottage”, “spraying and dyeing”, “ink blot”, etc, inheriting Liu’s belief of “free manifestations of abstract imagery”.
