Secret de Boudoir: HONG WAI CONTEMPORARY INK ART

秘密閨房--洪慧當代水墨
Curator: Pia Camilla Copper
Opening Reception: Opening Reception: 9 May 2014 from 6 pm

Ink has been confined for generations to a masculine universe. Here, Hong Wai journeys with ink to a new frontier, that of the mysterious feminine. The mountain and river landscape has become instead a woman’s body. The ode to heaven and earth has become an ode to the sensuous, the hidden, the ineluctable yin.

Shanghai-born artist Hong Wai uses her brush with uncommon skill, mastering the nuances of ink a well as the wash effect. Her works, using live with live models, exude an intimacy rare in Chinese painting. They are both highly feminine and feminist, examples of not just the beauty of the female form but also, somehow, their bold claim to independence in love and in spirit.


水墨的應用在傳統社會裡一直受局限約束。 洪慧為水墨開拓了新領域,走進女性神秘的國度。 女人的身驅取代了山川河流的景觀。 天地頌歌頓時變成教人賞心悅目的、隱秘的、難以抗拒的女性魅力。

洪慧,生於上海的藝術家,於澳門成長,經常遊走在巴黎與澳門之間。 這位書法家和畫家受過最高等的中國水墨傳統訓練,她的作品把水墨融入當代文化,揭開色情禁忌,打破水墨本身慣常的應用限制,突破固有框子,把水墨的運用發揮得淋漓盡致。 洪慧以非凡的筆觸,純熟地掌握水墨細膩的變化,把水墨效果渲染得渾然天成。 她的作品採用現場有血有肉的真人模特兒,散發出中國畫罕見的一種親和感。 作品細膩描繪女性,同時具有高度女性主義思想。作品展現出女性不只擁有外在美,更大膽主張愛與精神的獨立訴求。
