ABOUT 

Younie Gallery is welcoming spring festival with a mixed media exhibition. As many should know, “koi” is the symbol of prosperity since “fish” has the same pronunciation with the word “residual” in Chinese, meaning that our fortune will remain for the whole year.

Even though it may sound like a common theme, the artworks created by the group of artists are rather outstanding – A. S. Kang illustrated the dynamic between fish and water using acrylic; Puah Kim Hai created a strong colour of prosperous using Chinese ink; Loo Foh Sang’s daring attempt to depict movement of fish through mono silk printing; Lai Tiew Seong’s Chinese ink demonstrating wealth in a sense of simplicity and coolness; whereas Loke Gee Chian rendered a joyous touch to the world of fish in water. These artworks are great for both purposes of appreciation and collection.

这是一项多元媒体的春节艺术作品展,展览纯粹以普凡物象 – 锦鲤为新年意象的代言祥物。“鱼”与“余”是同音之字,因此“鱼”即是丰衣足食,财富累积之兆。

此展纵然以凡俗意义为主题,但画家所展出的作品却是非一般的艺术创作。譬如江亚森以压克力展现鱼与水的动感,潘金海以彩墨呈现富贵的新年之象,卢伙生大胆尝试以单版丝印表现鱼在水里嬉戏的画面,黎潮湘则应用淡彩把富贵藏于修养与历练中,因此画面沉着朴实,而陆宇坚则以油彩及水彩来愉快地表现鱼在水的世界。这系列作品可供观赏,亦值收藏。
