黃進曦全新個展《眈天望地》現於安全口畫廊(Gallery EXIT) 舉行，開放至8月25日。展出的一系列作品是黃氏對風景的深刻體會，以引人入勝的香港風景為題材，帶領觀眾漫遊翠綠鬱蒽的山丘和蜿蜒山徑，凝視變化多端的天空。
Gallery Exit is presenting Stephen WONG Chun Hei’s new exhibition Looking at the sky and the landscape beneath during 28 July – 25 August. The artworks there are testimonies of Wong’s strong and long-lasting fascination with landscape. Choosing the most amazing and exceptional sceneries in Hong Kong as sources of inspiration, his paintings draw the viewer into a world of lush green hills, winding mountain paths and ever-changing skies.
However, Wong’s scenic panoramas are not the exact representations of nature, although they are inspired by Hong Kong’s actual places such as Shing Mun Reservoir and the Sunset Peak. During his long hikes on Hong Kong’s countryside, he documents the landscapes with pencil and watercolour sketches, and reinvents them from his memory with vivid imaginations, which resembles the idealised “mountain water” paintings of the Chinese tradition.
The exhibition also includes Wong’s series “The Study of the Sky Every Dalf’, a collection of 365 small-format acrylic paintings, which was inspired by landscape painter John Constable’s dozens of cloud studies in 1821 and 1822. As mentioned by Constable, sky as the “chief organ of sentiment” in a landscape painting, and painting is “but another word for feeling”. Wong’s artworks do not only record the clouds, they also express his rich emotions.
