CHEUNG Sze-lit

Szelit, Cheung Sze-lit believes art is a long road towards oneself, a way to understand the world and polish one's mind.

He also believes art does not argue or interpret, but formats he was carefully chosen would be enough to construct meanings. Concepts and contexts would inspire the creative process. With an example of his oil painting, he talks about serious issues with thin layers of oil paint on a canvas with silky surface. This contradiction makes the artwork constructing much more meaning than the image itself could convey. The silky canvas is like a screen, but more tactile than a screen, with complicated reflection of light. It "displays" a mute image and records states of minds of the artist such as powerlessness of living.

藝術家︰張施烈

張施烈生於中國內地,1998年移居香港,現為全職畫家。曾就讀於香港藝術學院的視覺藝術基礎文憑與純藝術高級文憑。獲授澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學的藝術文學學位課程。張氏的創作主要以油畫與素描為主。

藝術對於張施烈而言,是自我修行的方法,一條很漫長的道路。藝術家在琢磨藝術的過程中,認識世界了解自己(出身、興趣等),確立個人氣質。

張氏相信,「藝術不應該講故事,手法已有內容。」創作概念及內容決定創作的操作方式。由在學時期開始至今,張氏逐步地去無存菁。以其油畫作品為例,光滑的布面與薄薄的油彩營造柔弱的觸感,卻承載著沉重的主題。畫布似是屏幕,卻有別於屏幕,呈現的畫面是比影像更多的層次與多變的光影處理,那像是一幕幕被定格的消音影像,紀錄著藝術家對生活的種種"無力感"。
