這次畫展是有關「生命之光」的題材。希望借助中國及西方藝術精粹中的融合表達出人生中正面、樂觀豁達的題材。 這兩幅抽象畫是以現代中國水墨畫及西洋塑膠彩畫間強烈的光暗對比表達出迅速的時間流逝與人生百感交集的像交響樂一般的戲劇化的感覺。賞畫者可於藝術品中的強烈光暗之間感受到此刻的熱鬧、快樂、正面積極的能量。這三幅現代中國畫作是非常有動感及獨特的藝術作品。在漆黑一片的中國墨形成的像神祕煙霧中的背景可讓那有西方特色繁華盛放的金屬色襯托出來。帶活力及有力量的筆觸可以為賞畫人帶出非常有快樂的正能量。這三幅現代中國水墨畫運用了反傳統的顔料及中西合璧的配搭出一種嶄新的現代水墨畫的演繹。

FORWARD

Dear Art Lovers,

These abstract, landscape, and floral artworks and paintings are created to enable art viewers to appreciate the beauties of nature and to elevate and enrich artistic minds.

The main theme of this art exhibition is about “Enlightenment”. The artist uses the essence of contemporary Chinese ink art and traditional Western acrylic painting to create a brand new style of art.

These modern abstract Chinese paintings are created to inspire positivity through the creative process of enlightenment with a new art form.

With the stark contrast of both light and dark, you can sense deep emotions through the swift passing of time. And ultimately, viewers can experience the dramatic and transcient nature and the abundance of life through these modern abstract paintings.

Sincerely,
Alice

An Artist Interview by Helena Chung

Date: December 19. 2019

Portrait of an Artist in Art Next 2019: Alice Chan

‘My aim is to introduce new perspectives to art through incorporating Chinese traditional techniques with Western sensitivity in my work. I believe that art should strive to find inspiration and seek enlightenment in everyday life.’ - Alice Chan

One may argue over the importance of art in Hong Kong, which has traditionally been regarded as a city dominated by finance. However, this city does indeed have an impressive number of art lovers, as many braved challenging circumstances to attend the 2019 edition of Art Next in the first week of November, held in the renovated heritage building PMQ which is located in the heart of Central, near high end art galleries of the city. This beautiful site dedicated to art lovers in the city provides a surprising corner of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan. Indeed, the power of art has never been more important in these times of difficulties, as we all seek for temporary comfort and escape from the chaos on the streets. Art Next offered a mixture of fresh faces and established names, with budding newcomers and award winning artists all returning to showcase their latest collection to the public.

Alice Chan, one of the fresh faces featured in Art Next this year, delivered an impressive collection that showcased a variety of artistic styles and experiments across the East and West, combined with the creativity of a contemporary artist who aimed to reach and engage with her audience directly. Educated in Hong Kong and the US, Chan’s works had been showcased in both local and international exhibitions. With the impressive achievements of holding an exhibition in her alma mater St Paul’s Co-educational College under her belt, she was featured as one of the rising contemporary young artists on The Standard, a major English newspaper well established in Hong Kong. Chan’s artworks embodied the techniques of traditional Chinese ink art and Western paintings. The subjects of her artwork included floral patterns, natural scenery, still life and abstract ink wash paintings.

During the four-day exhibition in Art Next, one of the most eye-catching pieces on display was definitely Chan’s triptych The Orchestra of Life. The collection was selected to undergo a highly selective juried process by a panel of art experts and curators. The bold use of colors, and the unique combination of Chinese ink, acrylic paint and Japanese watercolors on rice paper, attracted the attention of both amateur art lovers and professional artists, who expressed their admiration and appreciation for Chan’s unusual artistic choices.

Aside from successfully selling two pieces of artworks during the exhibition, Chan’s aim is to boost popularity for her online store, which offers a variety of products with her signature print patterns tailor made according to customers’ requests. Popular products included cell phone cases, tote bags, handmade postcards and art prints, all in accessible art form within an affordable price range. Through the online shop, Chan aims to promote her art work to wider audience, proving that she does not belong to the artists who limit themselves to highbrow art, but rather strive to share her artistic vision across boundaries and reach out to varying types of target audience, incorporating art into daily life.


Aside from exhibition and merchandise, another area that Chan expanded in during the four-day exhibition included conducting a master art class, which consisted of a quick tutorial of orchid flora sketch at beginners’ level, in the manner of Youtube tutorials. Aware of the difficulties in encouraging beginners’ interest in art, Chan brought specific coloring designs with her, as well as offering free souvenirs of well-made sketchbooks featuring her signature floral patterns to participants. This move proved to a successful strategy, as the class was full and many students shared the experience on social media platform afterwards.

From Alice Chan’s multi-dimensional approach to selling art in Art Next, one could observe the importance of creative strategies in reaching out to audience in the age of internet and social media. Chan’s attempts to balance her artistic aspirations and commercial interests in Hong Kong suggest that while pursuing the path of an artist is never easy, the ones with true passion should not give up on it, for strait is the gate and narrow is the way.

ART TESTIMONIALS:

"詠然早歲師承西洋藝術,究心於近代彩畫,留意於抽象畫派,及後受業於敝人,研習國畫山水。其所造固已出類拔萃,久為同門所推重。余任教其間,頗聞其緒論,以為如詠然者,真有志於糅合中西,以成一家之畫風。今來書謂是次畫展以「生命之光」為題材,有丹青兩幅,結合現代中國水墨與西洋塑膠彩畫,以強烈之光暗營造戲劇效果,表現時間流轉,百感交集,使人頓生憐取眼前,珍惜當下之意,足見其寓意實為樂觀積極,奮發向上之人生觀。余見其平生所學,自此可以行世,沾溉後人,為之大喜過望,不揣固陋,略序其耑,為陳「後生可畏」,此言非虛。乙亥秋鏵華於香港。"

"祝 展出成功"

(Translation: "Alice started to learn Western art since a child, Alice is mostly interested in modern abstract art. Later, Alice started to learn traditional Chinese ink art from me. Alice is exceptionally strong in her foundations and her art has also been admired by her peers in my class. Alice's work focuses on blending the Eastern and the Western traditions harmoniously to form a new style of art. Alice's upcoming art exhibition is about "Enlightenment" as a theme for her show. She cleverly mixes the techniques of Chinese Ink Art and Western Acrylics Art to create a dramatic stark contrast with light and dark. Alice's Chinese abstract ink art illustrates the fleeting nature of time and stresses the importance of cherishing time and embracing life. Art viewers should identify the light from the dark and to motivate viewers to focus on the good. 

Wish you a successful art exhibition!")

— Mr. Ken Lee, Artist, From 鏤竹齋, The Sanctum of Bamboo Craving in Hong Kong

"Alice Chan is a very talented and unique artist. She is accomplished in many different styles and is constantly evolving."

— Ms. Judith Carlin, Artist, From New York City, NY, USA

"Alice的作品是一場色彩的盛宴。東西方的藝術元素在作品中得到完美的結合,渾然天成。"

(Translation: "Alice's art work is a colorful feast for the eyes. Her artwork perfectly captures both the artistic elements from the East and the West.")

— Mr. Aries Wu, Founder of Aries Art studio in Hong Kong

"Alice從小開始習畫,多年來在繪畫領域中累積所得的經驗,沒有讓她滿足於現狀,反而成為了她自我挑戰的原動力。愛以自然界景、物入畫的她,由寫實描繪到抽象表現,都駕馭有餘。一個由幾歲便開始創作的女孩,一直無間斷地在畫布上遊走成長,以堅毅、獨立的性格發展出她的個人繪畫風格!是次展覽以「生命之光」為題,作品中充滿動感活力的筆觸,明亮跳脫的色彩,組成一股正面積極的正能量,透過抽象畫面躍然紙上,充分表現了Alice 在藝術創作路上的人生體會,同時也是她對藝術創作信念的實踐!"

(Translation: "Alice started to paint as a child. With many years of experiences in her artistic journey, she is not easily complacent with the state of her paintings and she constantly challenges herself to further improve. Alice loves to incorporate natural landscapes and still life subjects in her paintings. Alice's artwork is carefully controlled from realism to abstract art. As a girl who started to paint starting from around age 1-2, Alice constantly plays, grows, and evolves with her art canvas. Alice develops her unique artistic style with her independent and persistent personality! This upcoming exhibition addresses the theme, "Enlightenment", you can sense her vibrant energies from her lively and dynamic brush strokes, as well as her bright and colorful color schemes in her art. You can experience the artist's optimism and strive for perfection from her passionate artistic creations.")

— Ms. Ivy Leung, Art Teacher in Hong Kong

"Alice’s works show strong uniqueness of her binary background from architecture and art, which can be exemplified from her choice of light and colour in her works."

— Mr. Leo Chu, Architect in Hong Kong

"Alice's passion in art since childhood has blossomed into a creative career. 
Her artworks are a colourful confluence of cultures from the East and the West.
Her representational and abstract art reveals a fruitful journey of experimentation in media and content."

— Ms. Angelina Lo-Chui, Founder & Director of CreativeKids in Hong Kong

“Alice’s works demonstrate an effortless assimilation of western and eastern aesthetics that reflects her diverse cultural backgrounds and global perspectives.”

— Ms. Judy Inn, Director of Art Next Expo in Hong Kong
