Opening Reception: 2013.08.09 (Friday) / 6:00 pm
The A·lift Gallery 'CHECKPOINT'


"Isn't it another kind of co-existing relationship, between art and business, between artist and audience, between concept and skill?"

The A·lift Gallery 'CHECKPOINT' is going to showcase new works by local artist Alex HEUNG Kin-fung. Alex Heung has been engaged in painting for many years, where his works explore the relationship between nature and human beings. He uses plants and animals that represent natural world with artificial elements to construct an interesting and surreal composition. The show titled "Co-existence" imagines how animals understand and experience this alienated world.

"No such a creature can survive alone. There are symbiotic relationships between species and species, they are mutually dependent, they complement each other. However, the human civilization affects the relationship between human beings and other creatures, from harmonious to dominating, the nature becomes imbalance… perhaps we are at the same time dragged into the same situation.

More about the Artist



「其實藝術與商業、藝術家與觀眾、概念與技巧……等何嘗不是另一種共生的關係?」

提藝廊「CHECKPOINT」將於8月展出香港本地藝術家香建峰的繪畫新作。香氏多年來以繪畫為媒介,作品探索自然與人類間的種種關係,畫作多以大自然的動植物配以人工之物,構成有趣及超離現實的構圖。是次畫作系列將以「共生」為題,以探索動物如何去理解和感受這個被人類異化的世界。

沒有一種生物能孤單地生存在世界裹,物種與物種之間都是一種共生的關係,彼此依賴,互為補足。可是人類的文明發展使人與其他生物的關係由和諧演變為支配,讓自然失衡。。。。。。也許我們在不段影響其他物種的同時,我們自己也同時被牽引其中,不能自拔。
