2017年年底，三阿三 （Chan Sai Lok）在贏得「大華銀行年度最佳水墨藝術作品」大獎後，獲富豪酒店的獎學金資助，於2018年秋天駐留紐約藝術空間Flux Factory，創作兩月。
In late 2017, Chan Sai-lok won the UOB Ink Art of the Year Award and was entitled to a residency programme in the Flux Factory art space in New York for two months in autumn 2018 as part of the prize sponsored by Regal Hotels.
《一夕餘地》，為是次藝術駐留的回應展覽。《一夕餘地》為「紅」之始。阿三以華文文學作品入手，重尋白先勇、黃碧雲及郭強生等作家筆下的紐約，思量這城市如何被呈現，並成為失落的代名詞。八十年代末，黃碧雲的〈愛在紐約〉一眾角色彼此依存，卻註定離別；成於二千年初的白先勇兩個故事〈Danny Boy〉及〈Tea for Two〉回顧愛滋病爆發之初，小眾族群無助之身世，及紐約市面瀰漫惶恐不安的陰霾；郭強生在2010年出版的短篇小說《夜行之子》則以「九一一事件」雙子塔倒下為背景，看清楚大美國主義下個體的生存狀況。
Featuring his new paintings, “Land of Longing and Exile” summarises the artist’s response to his New York experience. “Land of Longing and Exile” is the beginning of the artist’s “Red” series. With Chinese language literature as the point of departure, Chan Sai-lok recounts how New York City was represented in fiction writing by Pai Hsien-yung (Taiwan), Wong Pik-wan (Hong Kong) and Kuo Chiang-sheng (Taiwan) and has since become a symbol of forlornness.
