‘Mindscape: Koon Wai Bong’ is the solo exhibition of Chinese painting by Hong Kong ink artist Koon Wai Bong. The exhibition introduces a contemporary approach to incorporate and rework the time-honoured Chinese brush and ink genre. Through Koon Wai Bong’s innovative composition and spatial arrangements of natural scenery, the richness of succinct images and brush work resonate with modern sensibilities of human’s inner being. The balanced hybrid of inheritance and reinvention beautifully transforms the serenity of nature into mindscapes for spirituality, where mundane human existence can be elevated to reconnect with the divine.
