22 October - 16 November 2019

Galerie Ora Ora is pleased to announce the joining of Chinese artist Liu Qi. The gallery will present Liu’s solo exhibition Sanctuary from 22 October to 16 November. The opening reception will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm on 22 October (Tuesday). The artist will be present.

Styling is the main focus of Liu Qi's figurative paintings. He draws inspiration from figurative styles of various traditional cultures, such as Thangka paintings, Egyptian and Medieval profile portraits, and the colours and figures found in Chinese Han paintings. His artistic approach refrains from allowing personal feelings to subjectively influence the scene, but instead depict every emotion objectively. Liu connects contemporary art and traditional cultures in a calm, elegant and romantic manner. His paintings preserve the traditional characteristics of Chinese ethnicity while balancing contemporary elements at the same time.

一瓢飲室

方由美術榮幸地於2019 年10月舉辦 劉琦個展「一瓢飲室」。展覽開幕酒會將於10月22 日(周二)下午6 時到晚上8 時在畫廊空間舉行,展期至11月16 日 ,屆時藝術家將會親臨開幕酒會現場。

「一瓢飲室」是當代水墨藝術家劉琦的畫室齋號,因藝術家喜愛喫茶而得名,亦是取於中國的警世名言:「弱水三千,吾只取一瓢飲。」。原句意思是在遙遠的河流中,我只取一口來喝。這個「只專其一」的宗旨等如人生有很多美好與奢華的事物圍繞著,但若能用心只專注在一樣事情就好了。所以,劉琦亦秉成這種「初心」繪畫他心中的美好事物。

這次展覽將展出劉琦十一張新作,希望帶領觀眾從作品人物的造型了解文化的思源,同時欣賞「樸實無華」的東方美感。如要往深一層的意思想像,他的作品是滲透著「安靜」、「克制」以及「沉練」等東方哲學價值觀——「禪」。劉琦的創作風格有別於現時當代水墨華麗奔放的風格,他崇尚極簡主義,以簡潔的線條繪畫當代生活的人和物。劉琦作品用色沉靜統一,整體流露著和諧之感。劉琦將造型的規律和變化運用得宜,他將古代的言語運用造型將其現代化,使他的作品都是耐看,宜古宜今。
