The A·lift Gallery 'CHECKPOINT'



The A‧lift Gallery ‘CHECKPOINT’ will hold a solo exhibition of Wong Xiang-yi in July, showcasing a number of her new works.

Wong Xiang-yi tends to be inspired by Gongbi (meticulous style of Chinese painting) and the culture of YAOI, she uses these two elements as her medium and theme of creation. The term, YAOI, originated from Japanese modern literature. It contains the meaning of "indulging in beauty". Later, the term is used in Boy's Love (male homosexual love) manga, referring to the fictional beauty of male characters. Xiang-yi's works meticulously depict the sense of beauty, affection, connotation and realm, subtly picturesque the metaphorical sides of things. She also tries to explore gender issues through her artistic practices.

The opening reception will take place on 5 July 2013 when the artist will be present.

More about the Artist
Media review of the exhibition (in Chinese)



以工筆水墨為她的媒介、以耽美文化為她的題材,這就是藝術家黃向藝的創作取向。
「耽美」 (YAOI)一詞源於日本近代文學,有沉溺於美之意,其後用於BL (男男戀) 漫畫文化,引申表現美型男角的官能之美。黃氏的作品中,喜以工筆刻畫種種的美、情、意、境,更以不同喻意之物入畫,增添畫中含蓄之意。她亦透過「耽美」,思索性別的議題。

提藝廊「CHECKPOINT」將於7月份展出一系列黃向藝的本年新作,並於7月5日舉辦展覽之開幕酒會,屆時藝術家將到場與各位分享她的創作。

關於黃向藝

黃向藝生於馬來西亞,定居香港。2010年畢業於香港中文大學藝術系。她的藝術創作深受日本流行文化影響,特別以當中「耽美」漫畫作為創作的根源,探討性別的議題。黃氏的作品以細膩的工筆見稱,以傳統的工筆手法,配合當代的創作概念,既保存我國傳統的藝術造藝,又不失年輕一代的現代思維。她的作品曾於中港海外多個地方展出,近年包括香港文華東方酒店《亞洲頂級畫廊酒店藝術畫展2013》、海港城•美術館、伙炭工作室開放計劃2013、香港會議展覽中心《香港國際藝術展》等,更榮獲多個藝術創作獎項。
