Chan’s works respond to themes such as history, social phenomena, living status, global miseries, and personal experiences. Chan exposes and brings forth the different approaches to perceiving these topics and their various states of existence. In his words: “The paintings portray the subconscious, but simultaneously they are just as realistic.”

    Fatina Kong’s works incorporate the idea of lives and events in endless cycles. She has been exploring the relationship between nature and human society and has built a unique perspective on the cycle of life. She wrote, “things are always changing and goes around in circles”. Her works therefore usually come in round forms, implying the cycle of birth and death. The buildings, crystals, stones and plants in her artwork are also presented in a way to express their interdependent relationship. 

    Fatina Kong graduated from the Academy of Visual Art, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2015. After receiving her art degree, she keeps exploring ways to combine Chinese painting with Western media. In 2018, Kong went to Xining, China to further study painting; and in the same year, she also participated in an artist residency program in Japan, which she found resonance in the Eastern painting more than ever. Inspired by the recordings and images from her daily life, her works give shape to a new landscape that merges memories and fantasy. On top of ink and Chinese pigment as painting media, she adds new layers to her works by using materials such as resin and acrylic board, to create a unique temperament that echoes with the traditional Chinese aesthetic. She has been exhibited in Hong Kong, China and Japan.

    Ma Yee Man, Agnes received her Bachelor’s degree from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2020. She mainly works with experimental painting, and focuses on using daily objects to make paint pigments. Her art practice often records the evolution of artificial objects, which she observes daily, and the relationships between these artificial objects and the nature environment. Her practice also explores the 

    dominance of humans over the natural environment.

    Mizuki Nishiyama is a London-based, mixed-Japanese artist who creates raw and confrontational artworks spanning paintings, sculptures, tapestries, poetry, and performances that explore the fragile human condition. Nishiyama notably conducts dialogues and critiques the socio-politics of the female experience by incorporating the artist's Japanese paternal soil, which has buried her military ancestors since the 1400s, into her works, where she reevaluates ancestry, patriarchy, and time.

    Wong Sze Wai was born and raised in Hong Kong. She graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2013 and Master of Fine Arts in 2020. She went to Shangri-la for further her studies in 2016 and participated in an artist residency in Bulgaria in 2018. Wong’s work focus on the relationship between memory and imagination. Through using various daily objects found locally, such as blue and white tarpaulin, discarded fences, bricks and plastic chairs, are seen scattered around in the painting. They represent the past of human activities as well as the passing of time. Inspired by ancient mural art and Western painting masters, Wong uses mineral pigments, clay and other materials, adding onto the canvases layer by layer. The textures spawned from the dried clay magnify the paintings’ relationships of space and time that lead viewers to explore in a further dimension.

    Wu Didi draws the subject matter of her paintings from the simplest elements of nature, such as vines, bamboo, stones, insects and weed. She gives each of her subjects a new life and unique identity. The paintings serve as the artist’s poetic study to examine spirituality in humanity as well as her own meditative process during the long creative process.
