The Works：Artist Chan Wai-lap, Carmen Ng's "Flowers In The Window" & in the studio: Vanessa Wong
RSS 最後由 編輯
Artist Chan Wai-lap’s works are often very personal and explore his inner self. His early works were inspired by memories of secondary school life, and many focused on the social constructs of the education system and his sense of identity growing up in post-colonial Hong Kong. In his latest work, he talks about his mother.
Memories of growing up and of her surroundings also provide fruitful inspiration for painter Carmen Ng. Ng recalls that when she was small, she and her siblings loved to sit on the front seats on the upper deck of buses where she would draw on the condensation on the windows and make her earliest pictures. On show at Karin Weber Gallery, “Flowers In the Window” includes water colour paintings of Hong Kong’s cityscape and imaginative dream-like images.
Good news for concertgoers. After months of suspension of live music performances due to the outbreak of the fourth wave of Covid-19, the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra is returning to the Cultural Centre Concert Hall with stringent health and safety measures. This Friday, pianist Vanessa Wong is playing with the orchestra in a concert that includes music by Ginastera, Gershwin and Dvorak. She came to our studio to share with us more about the concert.
