Exhibition: DESIRE at Goethe-Gallery

Sculptures and paintings by Eastman Cheng and Joey Leung Ka-yin

18.4. – 10.5.2012, Goethe-Gallery

Opening at 7:00pm on 18.4.2012 (Wed) in the presence of both artists

 

 Wishing Well by Joey Leung Ka-yin                          Immortal by Eastman Cheng

“Desire” is the topic of this joint exhibition by female artists Eastman Cheng and Joey Leung Ka-yin. Graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Joey Leung Ka-yin combines traditional Chinese painting and popular culture in her works, which are usually accompanied by her own contemporary writing to give a flavor of Chinese art. In this exhibition, Leung continues to explore the topic of human desire with new paintings in addition to her existing ones. Parallel to Leung’s paintings are sculptures by Eastman Cheng, who extends her interpretation of desire through sculptural figures of saints from both East and West.

Graduated in the Chinese University of Hong Kong (BA Fine Arts, 2000; MFA, 2007), Joey Leung Ka-yin explores the use of contemporary writing equipments to present the flavor of Chinese art, trying to push the boundary of different media. The stories in her artworks depict her feeling and fantasy towards modern life. It’s also an attempt to introspect the value of tradition in contemporary world.

Eastman Cheng is an MFA graduate of the Chinese University of Hong Kong after having completed her Bachelor of Arts from the same university. Cheng believes “objects” are traces of human activity. Through meditating objects designed by others, the artist transforms them according to her feelings and experiences into a peculiar human landscape.
