Dusty Stage Rhapsody | LEUNG Wing Hong solo exhibition

A.M. SPACE PRESENTS

Dusty Stage Rhapsody

a.m. space |  10 May ﹣16 June  | solo exhibition of LEUNG Wing Hong

10 May | Artist Talk 6-7pm | Opening Reception 7-8pm

Suits, hill landscape, window, obscurity and order have always been the motifs of LEUNG Wing Hong’s painting.  In the exhibition, Leung creates mise-en-scène to bring us into the realm of the night.  Every painting non-verbally tells us an uncanny story after dark.  The artist revisits his constellation of symbolism and reinvent them to create new narratives.  The series of works have a layer of dramatic playfulness on top of the upsetting and lonesome compositions.

“Dust Stage Rhapsody” is the third solo exhibition of LEUNG Wing Hong after “Permutation” and “Coordinate Mapping”.  The previous exhibition reaffirm the role of storyteller for LEUNG.   He dedicates this body of works to turn the canvas into a stage.  Characters is still the center of his creativity.  He creates characters for a “story”.  The characters are thrown into the stage of the painting. Thus plots can start at this point.

This series of work explore the autonomy of human being.  In Ancient Chinese mythology, human race was made with yellow earth.   At the moment of birth, we are thrown into different stages.  After that, we encounter the randomness of the universe without a clue of the essence of the world.  The development of the plot cannot be interrupted by the characters.  Nobody can unveil the meaning of the existence of them.  There is only emptiness awaits them.  The absence of the meaning exasperates us.  The only way to levitate us is to alienate from our own situation and explore the stories of others, in hope of having a glimpse of a flash of aura.

LEUNG Wing Hong

Leung Wing Hong was born in Guangdong, China in 1991. He moved to Hong Kong in the next year. After graduated from Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014, he continues to paint in his studio in Kwai Chung.

He focuses on painting with a desire to express the discoveries from his daily observation on urban life. Being curious about the world surrounding him, he has always kept on looking and contemplating at the matters appearing around himself as if everything appears for some reasons and he is looking for the hints derived from them.

A.M.SPACE  呈獻

《塵土劇場》

a.m. space  |  5月10日﹣6月16日  |  梁詠康個展

5月10日 | 藝術家講座6-7pm | 開幕酒會 7-8pm

a.m.space將於3月1日至3月24日呈獻梁詠康油畫個展《塵土劇場》

西裝、山景、窗、晦暗和秩序一向是梁詠康的母題。今次再用精心安排的場景,帶我們進入黑夜的領域。每一幅畫都像在訴說一個夜幕降臨後的離奇故事。藝術家為自己慣用的符號賦予新意義,令失落、孤獨的意象添上了演戲般的玩味。

《塵土劇場》是梁詠康繼《唯序》和《飄流標記》後第三個個人展覽。自上一次展覽,梁氏更確定自己敍事者的角色,要把畫布變成舞台。今次,人物依然是梁創作的重心。他為故事創造人物,又拋擲到畫中舞台,展開不同的情節。

梁一系列的近作在探討人的自主。據說人是泥土所造,在誕生同時,卻又隨即被拋往不同舞台,繼而不知所以然地遭遇無常。故事發展非角色能左右,又沒有人可以為他們解答存在的意義,只得留一大白。意義的空白使人愴惶,唯有偶然抽離自我的境況,遊歷他人的故事,寄望瞥見一閃靈光。

梁詠康

1991年生於中國廣東,次年移居香港。自2014年從香港中文大學藝術系畢業後,他在葵涌工作室繼續繪畫。他專注於繪畫創作,並渴望表達從日常觀察所得。他對他周圍的世界非常好奇,所以不停觀看和思考出現在他身邊的事物,彷彿所有東西的出現都有著一些因由而他則要從中尋求提示似的。
