Alisan Fine Arts is proud to present Hong Kong Landscapes, its sixth solo exhibition for ink master Lui Shou-kwan (1919-1975).
With a focus on Lui’s modern landscape paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, the paintings on display literally follow Lui’s footsteps while he visits the various sites around Hong Kong Island. They include iconic landmarks such as Victoria Harbour, Victoria Peak, Lion Rock, Happy Valley, and the beautiful beaches of Repulse Bay and Shek O, as well as the various hills and valleys in the country parks.
Through these works one can trace the extra-ordinary techniques that Lui developed to meticulously depict the changing seasons, weather, and the various times of day while maintaining the literati spirit of traditional ink painting. Liu was painting these landscapes all the while when he was working on his iconic Zen paintings.
This exhibition is the third in a series of important shows the gallery has planned for its 40th Anniversary celebration this year.
