City Life 城市生活

City Life 城市生活

This is a collection of paintings using traditional Chinese painting media, mainly ink and Xuan paper, to depict realistic scenes from life. The collection was shown in Fong So’s first solo exhibition at the University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong, from November 2000 to January 2001.

城市生活
這個系列的畫作,使用的是傳統中國畫的筆墨和宣紙,但繪畫的是現今的生活情景,並於2000年11月至2001年1月在香港大學美術博物館展出,是為方蘇的首次個展。

 

“…Fong So depicts different aspects of life in a metropolis, bringing into focus those who are old or neglected, and simple city folks, familiar yet extraordinary…. Within a period of only two years, he has managed to complete this group of paintings that are innovative in composition, fascinating in colour, and of subjects that stimulate thought and contemplation.”
— Anita Wong, Curator, University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong
(Foreword of the exhibition catalogue, 2000)

「方蘇……深入描繪出形形色色的都市生活,突顯被人遺忘的老弱一群和城市中的小人物,在平凡中展現他們的不平凡。……花上兩年時間完成了這批構圖獨特、色彩濃烈、發人深省的作品。」
—-黃燕芳‧香港大學美術博物館館長 (展覽目錄前言‧2000)
