由Gallery HZ所舉辦的聯展“PERSONA”,帶來合共13位來自香港和世界各地的藝術家作品。

Simon Birch,'Untitled 21', 2020,Pencil on paper,53 x 46 cm

Gallery HZ are thrilled to present our first group exhibition ‘PERSONA’, featuring paintings by Simon Birch, Peter Chan, Clément Denis, Ghost Mountain Field, Aries Wu; photography works by Chong-Il Woo; digital canvas by MoMo Kim; prints by Desmond Lo; drawings by Chow Ciao Chow, Daisuke Tajima and Emmy Wan; as well as sculptures by Camie Lyons and Kirsteen Pieterse. Unified by their sentiments towards how human beings situate themselves in this uncertain and fast-changing world, the thirteen artists from Hong Kong and other parts of the world adopted different mediums and styles to inquire into the notions of time, identity, everyday life and built environment of the contemporary society.

Clément Denis,'Cartographic de l'exode', 2018,Mixed medium on paper,45 x 35 cm

To understand what the artist is trying to convey through their artistic creations, viewers may have a figure in mind when they look at the art piece – imagining the personalities and state of mind reflected in the material, composition, the use of colours, and the choice of subject etc. Art is indeed a persona of the artist exposed to the external world. On the other hand, the way a person interprets and the association one has when seeing an artwork, is in fact embodying the personality, the state of mind and the personal history of oneself.

Chow Ciao Chow,'Your Tears Grow Beautiful Flowers', 2020,Print on paper,50 x 40 cm

Art can be considered as an agent for artists to express their emotions and sentiments. It is also a lens for viewers to look back at themselves through the resonation they have with the piece they are looking at. Consisting the persona one wants to project and the personal feeling, experience and life underlying, art, therefore, is a mirror reflecting a version of self in both the artist and the viewer.

Daisuke Tajima,'No One is There Only Me Standing There', 2020,Print on paper,84 X 108 cm
