大自然和城市的協奏曲|The concerto of Nature and City

城市和大自然似乎有著一種微妙的張力,待在城市久了,就會想離開看看世界原本的模樣;在鄉郊長大的人卻常常嚮往城市的先進和潮流。兩種截然不同的環境似乎代表著兩種不同的價值,但若果她們以藝術的形式呈現,或許會讓人發現兩者並非那麼矛盾,而是有著相輔相成的關係。

There seems to be a subtle tension between mother nature and the city, after having lived in a city for a certain period, we tend to return to the embrace of mother nature. Those who spent their childhood living in rural areas, however, are eager to explore the advancement and glamour of big cities. These two diverse environments seemingly represents two different values, but if they are presented as artistic objects, they might not be as contradictory as we thought, instead, they compliment each other.

藝倡畫廊很高興為風景攝影師金昌民舉行第二次個展「金昌民得獎風景攝影作品展,這次精心策劃的攝影展,以金氏最近在香港拍攝的作品,以及得獎的風景照片作為焦點,探索了金氏對自然界與城市景觀之間殊途同歸的表達方式,並着重強調金氏作品呈現構圖、色彩和光線細微變化的特徵。這次展覽通過把自然風景和城市景觀的作品一左一右並置的方式,檢視了城市與自然之間的和諧關係,以及人與自然密不可分的主題。

Alisan Fine Arts is pleased to present Synchronicity, our second solo exhibition for landscape photographer Stephen King. Featuring King’s recent photographs in Hong Kong alongside his award-winning landscape images, this highly curated exhibition explores the synchronicity between King’s natural and urban landscapes. Through juxtaposing contrasting scenes, one realises the subtle commonalities found in King’s compositions
such as shapes and use of light. The show examines the harmonious relationship between city and nature and the theme that humanity and nature are inextricably linked.

金昌民雖然定居香港,但他經常周遊列國,同時捕捉兼具舞台效果和處於寧靜狀態的風景影像。金氏的攝影作品被描述為具有繪畫的特質,他通過使用光、顏色和構圖來表達他的藝術風格。

Though based in Hong Kong, Stephen King frequently travels the world to capture images that evoke a landscape’s simultaneous capacity for drama and serenity. King’s photography is often described as possessing a painterly quality — a style he cultivates through his sedulous use of light, colour, and composition.
