Welcome to Goldenfairy Studio
Artist's Galley and Workshops
My love for art has been with me since childhood. Over the past few years, I have finally settled down and dedicated myself to observing, studying, and creating works of art. I am enthusiastic about various forms of art, especially the natural and free expression found in watercolour painting.
This exhibition is my first solo art show, featuring over 40 of my beloved watercolour paintings. Most of these pieces are inspired by the natural scenery of Hong Kong and other cities in China, aiming to convey the beauty of the East through Western watercolour techniques. In particular, several paintings are focused on Hong Kong, reflecting my journey into the country parks, natural trials, islands, and fishing villages. With these paintings, I hope to showcase a different charm of Hong Kong and enable everyone to experience the tranquility and scenic beauty beyond the bustling cityscape.
The theme of this exhibition is "From Paintings to Poems", with each painting accompanied by a Chinese poem. These poems were all written by my father based on the contents of the paintings. He used traditional Chinese poems to reveal the essence of every piece. By appreciating the paintings while reading the poems in the same breath, one can deeply sense the artistic conception and charm within. The watercolour paintings and traditional poems complement each other, offering a shared visual and spiritual experience. This collaboration not only represents the cooperation between my father and me, but also serves as a bridge between different artistic systems, blending modernity with traditional cultural values. I believe that the perception and thought of art can connect our hearts and minds from different eras and backgrounds, and I will continue to explore and pass on this love for art.
