This time, Accidental Art brought two Hong Kong local artists' works together and curated the exhibition "Occult Complexion 隱映".
Occult complexion describes the phenomenon between object attributes and natural texture, projected and interpreted with transcendental perceptions. Carefully curated, the exhibition explores the complexity of how common matter can be observed, perceived and attached to unique sensibility, re-examining the relationships among self-identity, humans, nature and urban civilization.
1. Yiyi Wang (王乙伊)
Yiyi Wang was born in Beijing, China in 1995, immigrated to Hong Kong in 2009 and graduated with a Scholastic Award achievement from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2017. Yiyi focuses on contemporary figurative style in ink and color. As a Beijing-born Hong Kong resident, Yiyi’s art preserves personal stories and memories while simultaneously explores the dynamics of self-identity caught between these two contrasting cities.
2. Chuntao LAU (Jay 劉鎮滔)
Born in Hong Kong in 1994, Chuntao Lau is a local illustration artist. In 2017, Chuntao graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring in Visual Arts. His works are mostly in ink, color, acrylic and silk screen prints. Chuntao is known for deforming objects with delicate texture and patterns. As a witness of the ongoing changes in Hong Kong, Chuntao focuses on revealing different facets of the city and its residents with imaginative illustrations.
The selection of works by the two artists, although very different in terms of artistic languages and mediums, is united by a similar approach towards the investigation of the topic Occult Complexion.
