Magic City: Ink Painting in New Light
The installation work “Magic City: Ink Painting in New Light” is an organic combination of Chinese ink painting, computer art and light. The work (completed in 2005) consists of five brush-and-ink paintings and twenty-three digital variations. The original pieces are places alongside their computer-generated counterparts to create a surreal aura.
Hong Kong cityscape is the main subject of these images. They are presented in different ways for contrast.
This work is a dialogue between tradition and modernity. It embraces Chinese ink painting and the development of digital technology. It also probes into the relationship between traditional art form and our urban life in the new millennium.
