Soluna Fine Art呈獻以慶祝女性歷史月為主題的「Once Upon 喁喁細語」展覽，首次為出生於1990年代的香港新銳女性藝術家舉辦群展。本次展覽展出六位藝術家：陳頌欣、劉詩敏、梁凱雅、吳芮慇、黎栩雯以及王昱珊，共二十多件作品 包含現有及全新的作品。
Soluna Fine Art is proud to present ‘Once Upon 喁喁細語’ in celebration of Women’s History Month of March, its first group exhibition of six emerging Hong Kong female artists born in the 1990s. This exhibition will showcase more than twenty new and existing artworks by artists: Joanne Chan, Lau Sze Man, Livy Leung Hoi Nga, Rosalyn Ng, Coco Ray Hui Man, and Wong Yuk Shan.
Why it matters:
Artists born in the 1990s have acted as the intermediary between the generations before and after. Having grown up through the rapid growth in information technology and egalitarian knowledge-sharing, this generation of artists is keen and sensitive to the analog to digital age developments. Now, they have made their way into the contemporary art scene in a moment in time when it’s not only just the gender issue that has become a global focal point but diverse topics that are particular to the present time in Hong Kong: pandemic, social changes, isolation, and more.
The reality of the last few years of Hong Kong has left most of us with mismatched feelings that are familiar and unfamiliar. Despite the growing distance from the space called home, artists turn to their canvases to articulate (or whisper 喁喁細語) their personal space. While each artist has a distinct visual language and approach to mark-making, the works collectively demonstrate artists’ innate solid urge to create or construct a world that amplifies expressions of resilience and hope for a positive future.
．Joanne Chan (b. 1992) graduated from Chelsea College of Art, London, with a major in Fine Art in 2015. Joanne’s daily grounding meditation and spiritual practice also extend to her development of abstract, color-field paintings. While the creative process of doing gestural spraying and painting is profoundly cathartic to her, these expansive, vibrant colors themselves demonstrate the effects of traversing between energy, consciousness, non-dualism, and creation.
．Lau Sze Man (b. 1995) obtained her B.A. degree in Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2017. Lau believes that painting can retain complex feelings that can rarely be described verbally. To her, painting is a methodological recording of some of her rawest emotions at the moment, like writing a diary, sometimes transfixed in the moment-to-moment spontaneous process.
．Livy Leung Hoi Nga (b. 1996) graduated with a B.A. in Visual Arts from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, in 2018. Mismatched elements in daily life have always intrigued Livy to construct a world between reality and personal fantasy. She recomposes her thoughts towards different observations and amplifies her imaginary world as a form of expression and self-indulgence within her art practice.
．Rosalyn Ng (b. 1993) graduated from Chelsea College of Art, London, with a major in Fine Art in 2015. Rosalyn’s works translate nascent emotions into organic mark-making expressions. While she is involved in the active creation process, her purpose lies in captivating the viewers through her signature multidimensional layers juxtaposed against the bold colors and textures.
．Coco Ray Hui Man (b. 1996) obtained B.A. with double majors in Art History and German from the University of Hong Kong in 2019. Her exchange program experiences at the University of Amsterdam and a year-long cultural exchange in Switzerland had powerfully shifted her understanding of art as a way of communication across language barriers.
．Wong Yuk Shan (b. 1995) obtained a B.A. of honors in Fine Arts with a minor in Chinese Language and Literature from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2018. Wong is currently developing a comprehensive series on the inner state of the human being with the belief that emotions are essential components of personality in the present era saturated by exterior information.
