THE NORMAN W. M. KO COLLECTION OF HONG KONG ART
< Back


24 Oct 2007 - 09 Dec 2007

The University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong is pleased to present an exhibition featuring a donation of Hong Kong art to the Museum by Norman W. M. Ko. The exhibition includes over 100 paintings ranging from Chinese ink, oil, acrylic, printmaking to mixed media, by some 60 artists who represent the development of Hong Kong art from the 1960s to the present.

On show will be conventional ink paintings by Yang Shan-sum, Cheung Wan, Lo Koon-chiu, Cheng Ming, Liew Come-tong, among others; and works by modern ink artists such as Irene Chou, Kan Tai-keung, Leung Kui-ting, Chui Tze-hung, Raymond Fung and Ng Kun-lun, many of whom are followers of Lui Shou-kwan and Wucius Wong. These two pioneer artists led an innovation in ink in response to Abstract Expressionism in the 1960s, giving rise to the New Ink Painting movement. Modern ink painting has been representative of contemporary Chinese art in Hong Kong ever since.

Also on view will be artworks in Western media or manner by Gaylord Chan, John Li, Ha Bik-chuen, Joseph Lee etc. Artists such as Kwok Mang-ho, Ronnie Wong and Wong Chung-yu create works with vernacular themes and whimiscal narratives, drawing on caricature, in Chinese ink and other media. Other artists such as Chu Hing-wah, Jerry Kwan, Wong Sau-ching, Tsang Fan-kwong and Luk Kwok-yuen depict bustling and anonymous city life.

Norman W. M. Ko is a former professor in mechanical engineering at The University of Hong Kong. He is also a dedicated artist whose sculptural works are evident in many of Hong Kong's public spaces.
