Heartbeat in Hong Kong Exhibition

Artist: Elaine Chiu

Curator: Emily Yang

Exhibition dates: 14.10.2016-09.12.2016
 

MTR passengers will have a chance to experience their city from a new perspective through a series of 29 paintings which are on display in a new "Art in MTR" exhibition near Entrance/Exit J of MTR Central Station to 9 December 2016. Entitled "Heartbeat in Hong Kong: Elaine Chiu's Solo Exhibition", the exhibition depicts cityscapes and landscapes around Hong Kong through the eyes of a talented young artist who captures the distinctive local culture behind the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

Currently a Fine Arts major at the University of Hong Kong, Ms Chiu is from the post-90s generation and her journey of soul-searching is reflected through her art works. "From my perspective, painting is not only an adventure to show a microcosmic portrait of the city, it is also a spiritual exploration. By combining the realistic images on every corner of the streets with rich watercolour rendering, I hope to project the intertwined relationship between my observations on details of daily life in Hong Kong and my sentiments," she said.

"Ms Chiu's works capture the hectic life and uniqueness of our city. We hope our passengers can take a moment to appreciate not only the beautiful paintings but also the artist's adventure of uncovering the true colours of our dazzling city's lights and souls," said Ms Maggie So, General Manager - Corporate Relations of MTR Corporation.

「港鐵‧藝術」展覽呈現年輕藝術家眼中 色彩繽紛的香港都市風貌
展覽日期: 14.10.2016-09.12.2016


港鐵乘客可以透過最新「港鐵‧藝術」展覽中的二十九幅畫作,以嶄新的角度感受城市的動力。是次「心跳在香港:趙綺婷作品展」於港鐵中環站J出入口的「港鐵‧藝術」中舉行至十二月九日,展出一位富天賦的年輕藝術家在熙來攘往的城市背後所捕捉的本地獨特文化,將城市和自然風貌呈現在作品中。

趙綺婷於一九九零年代出生,現就讀香港大學藝術系。她透過作品表達出她的自我反思。她說:「對我來說,繪畫不僅是一次描繪城市縮影的歷程,還是一回探索心靈的旅程。我運用豐富的水彩顏色與街頭上真實的景像結合,藉此將日常生活中觀察的細節以及個人情感相互交織的關係展現出來。」

港鐵公司總經理-公司事務蘇雯潔女士說:「趙綺婷小姐的作品勾畫出城市生活忙碌和獨特的一面。我們希望乘客除了抽空欣賞這些令人賞心悅目的畫作外,還可以細味藝術家眼中的繁華城市背後的真實景象和箇中情懷。」
