Angel HUI

Statement

“I am a contemporary ink painter based in Hong Kong. I am particularly interested in reinvestigating the value of exis”ting, found objects. My works exhume meanings of daily, mundane materials, such as facial tissue and rice paper, and re-infuse them with new and unpredictable associations and perceptions.

Deeply inspired by traditional Chinese art, I often apply ink on delicate materials, such as facial tissue, rice paper, and sometimes porcelain with meticulous brushwork, twisting the ancient art form and transforming the nature of everyday objects.

One of the works, in particular, uses tissue paper as a canvas, drawing upon motifs associated with the blue and white porcelain tradition to re-dine new meanings and value of it.”
