From Land to Sky - New Gallery on Old Bailey Hong Kong
談天說地: 楊素珊 x 陳竹君作品 - 香港奧畫廊

07.05.2014 – 21.06.2014
Artists: Susan Yeung, Ada Chan
Orangizer: Breathe Life Arts & Culture

“From Land to Sky” will be the eighth joined painting exhibition by the artistic duo since Breathe Life Arts Exhibition in Hong Kong. Susan and Ada share the same passion, art, an approach to illustrate their insights and unique perspective of life through the use of composition, color and brushstrokes.

Susan’s paintings veer toward emotion over narration; enchanting the magical side of life through depictions with impressionistic touch. Her work has been influenced to some extent by impressionist paintings, offering viewers snapshots of scenery in dreamlike settings. Her sensitive depictions of landscape are distinguished by subtle colors and free brushstrokes, which give her paintings unusual vitality.

Ada incorporates animals into her paintings to elaborate on the connection between animals and the human race. ‘Their every move, their every behavior, from birth to death, it is like a mirror image of the human race. We are connected to them in ways that we may not even realize.” Animals are used as metaphors to reflect the fundamental flaws of humanity. The use of intense colors, distinctive brush strokes and strong compositions heighten the expressiveness of Ada’s works.

奧畫廊特別呈現,香港藝術家楊素珊與陳竹君聯合參展的「談天說地」 (From Land to Sky),將於2014年5月7日至6月21日假奧畫廊展出。兩位藝術家希望借由畫作,與觀者無拘無束地「談天說地」,並讓觀展者體會到藝術是由心出發,可以天馬行空,可以毫無束縛。

一直以來,楊素珊與陳竹君對藝術有著同樣的熱情與堅持。她們利用構圖,色彩和靈感,以各自的獨特視角,描繪自己對生命的見解,敘說自己對自然的熱愛。 「談天說地」將是兩位藝術家繼「生息藝術展2013」後的第八次作品聯展。

楊素珊的作品朝著「情感超越敘事」的方向改變,通過寫意的筆觸帶出自然的魅力與生命的神奇。她的作品深受印象派繪畫的影響,給觀者帶來如夢似幻的景像。其中,她對風景細心敏感的描繪,利用微妙的色彩,自由的畫筆,為畫作注入不尋常的生命力。

陳竹君熱愛大自然、熱愛生命,她的畫作融入動物元素,講述動物與人類之間的故事。「它們的一舉一動,從出生到死亡,就像人類的鏡像。我們在不自覺中已與它們緊密相連。」利用動物來反映人類最根本的缺點。作品運用濃烈的色彩以及強烈的組合,讓畫作里的大自然栩栩如生,並刻畫人類的渺小與殘酷。
