Karin Weber Gallery presents Paperscapes, New Works by Stephen Wong Chun Hei and Eric Fok

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Karin Weber Gallery is excited to present a new gallery collaboration with a Hong Kong and a Macau artist in the upcoming show ‘Paperscapes’: New Works by Stephen Wong Chun Hei and Eric Fok (one of whose works is shown here courtesy of the artist and the Karin Weber Gallery). Paper transforms into the perfect backdrop for the artists’ flights of the imagination across mythical mountain – and cityscapes.

‘Paperscapes’ created by both artists may be surreal, yet elements that appear warmly familiar to the viewer appear in each work. An intriguing blend of the local, the rooted, and the everyday are juxtaposed with the dreamy and fantastical in works inspired by the past, yet inspired by the minds of their creators. The fantastical nature of the show is enhanced by the miniature sizing of many of the paintings, introducing greater complexity while demanding even greater craftsmanship.

About the artists

Stephen Wong Chun Hei (b. 1986)

Stephen obtained his BA in Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008 and has since worked from his studio space in Fo Tan. Inspiration for his early work initially came from video games; now, the mountain subject plays a significant role in his work, which is frequently created ‘en plein air’ while hiking the Hong Kong hillside. As he shares, “a new mountain is created everyday in my imagination.” Stephen Wong has shown extensively in Hong Kong. His works are held in numerous private collections in Hong Kong and Asia.

Eric Fok (b. 1990)

A visual arts graduate from the Macao Polytechnic Institute, Eric Fok lives and works in Macao. His paperscapes are a unique blend of tradition and modernity. Using a technical pen and paper that is aged using tea, he integrates ancient maps with modern constructions. Eric had his first solo exhibition in Portugal in 2014 but has participated in several group shows in Macao, Hong Kong, London and Singapore over the past seven years. His works form part of several prestigious public collections including the Macau Government Headquarters (Governor’s Palace), Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macau S.A.R., Oriental Foundation, Macau Museum of Art, The Orient Museum (Portugal), University Museum and Art Gallery (HKU), and private collections in Italy, Las Vegas (U.S.A.), United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macao.

Karin Weber Gallery present ‘Wood Whispers’ works by Hong Kong artists Carmen Ng and Andio Lai

Monday, September 5th, 2016

Karin Weber Gallery is pleased to present ‘Wood Whispers’ works by Hong Kong artists Carmen Ng and Andio Lai, in an exhibition that runs from 9th September to 8th October.

The show imaginatively explores nature’s reactions and responses to indiscriminate urban development and degradation of the environment. It is simultaneously a critical commentary on the destructive nature of humans as well as an ode to Mother Nature who is nurturing, resilient and cannot be easily destroyed. The tree is used a symbol of all nature and its whispers encompass a gamut of expressions including cries, screams, tears, fears and hopes
The exhibition includes a series of creative artworks comprising paintings by Carmen Ng and sonic compositions, or “abstractions” by Andio Lai. Their inaugural collaboration is a unique experiment with the fusion of their styles creating some magical sensory experiences.  Visual images are translated into another dimension, adding depth and emotion to the viewing experience that is enriching as well as uplifting.


A Hong Kong Everyday at the Karin Weber Gallery from July 8th

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Karin Weber Gallery is pleased to present A Hong Kong Everyday: New Works by Brainrental, Elvis Yip Kin Bon and Joyce Lung Yuet Ching. In this exhibition, the gallery explores the relationship between everyday life and the art it inspires by considering the works of three Hong Kong artists.

Joyce Lung Yuet Ching, whose work Susan is shown here courtesy of the artist and Karin Weber Gallery, is a young artist who recently graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University, Academy of Visual Arts, expresses nostalgia for the family helper the artist holds dear. Joyce creates ceramic works inspired by everyday cleaning products. She also hopes to inspire local citizens to think more deeply about how they treat the individuals who care for the city’s young souls.

Some say life is art, but art is life too. Like all of us, artists are not immune to the unconscious influence of everyday life on the mind and spirit. Sometimes the most extraordinary inspiration comes from the most ordinary objects and the routines associated with them.
