> DESCRIPTION

Painting On and On presents a series of exhibitions proposing various discourses on painting in Hong Kong today. The first instalment of this project will feature works by more than thirty local painters, ranging from early practitioners of the 1970s to a selection of emerging artists. Born out of a desire to stimulate interest, the thematic exhibitions, seminars, workshops and a publication are documentations of the artists' collaboration, commonalities and mutual influences. 

The first exhibition in the programme, "The Repository of Coherent Babbles" includes works by Sushan CHAN, HO Sin Tung, Cassian LAU, Joey LEUNG, Vivian POON, Wilson SHIEH and TSE Yim On. The use of figuration and narrative has had a long tradition in painting. With the movement gaining momentum since the late 1990s in Hong Kong, artists employ the quotidian to question the descriptive and representational limitations of the medium. The painters in this exhibition combine inspirations from Chinese and Western figuration, mythology, fables, surrealism, comics, animation, film and literature into visual narrations of contemporary realities.

Painting On and On is an artist-run project initiated by a group of Hong Kong painters in the Spring of 2011. This exhibition series is supported by Gallery EXIT @SOUTHSITE.

 

《繪畫大道中》將舉辦展覽系列,探討五個香港當代繪畫的主題。這個計劃之首輪活動召集了三十多位創作形態各異的藝術家,當中包含七十年代的前輩畫家以至近期正在崛起的年輕畫家。藉着這群藝術家共同籌劃的主題展覽、專題講座、工作坊及出版物,為他們的合作過程、共通點和大家的相互影響作一個記錄,希望提供更多理解當代香港繪畫的切入點。

首個展覽《妄想專門店》包括陳素珊、何倩彤、劉啓舜、梁嘉賢、潘蔚然、石家豪及謝炎安的作品。以人物及敘事為主軸的繪畫,歷史悠久。香港在九十年代末開始出現一批畫家,利用日常生活點滴作題材來挑戰繪畫這個媒介中描述和表徵的局限。今次展覽的畫家把中外畫風、傳奇、童話、動漫、超現實主義,加上電影及文學等原材,揉合成現今生活的視覺敘事。

《繪畫大道中》計劃由一群香港畫家於2011年春天發起,以藝術家主導為推行此計劃之原則。今次展覽系列由安全口畫廊@SOUTHSITE協辦。
