Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

To communicate effectively via visual language, it involves the artist's own perseverance towards perfection. It took the artist one lifetime of devoted exploration and experimentation. Engulfed in the tight schedule and defined space of urban living, one has to become part of the scheme of things in making effect immediately and be effective simultaneously. We all are living through the 'instant noodle' way of being fast in speed, okay in quality, and alright in result.

The ink painters in Sung Dynasty expect such poetic quality in one's landscape rendering that the artwork itself becomes a destination to stroll, to inspire, to discover, and to dwell from the viewers' point. We, the now-a-day concrete jungle dwellers, can only cast our admiration. Being a member of the cost-effectiveness driven society, the only thing I can do is to rely upon my hundreds of million of ink dots to create such virtual lines and form in fulfilling the textural composition of a painting.
This is by no means a painstaking way of self-perfection, but an escape for a moment of comfort from the prevailing instant noodle culture.

Artist Profile

Born: 1947

Hometown: Hong Kong

Based in: Hong Kong

Eddie LUI Fung Ngar was born in 1947 in Hong Kong, where his parents had settled some years earlier. Completing a studio program at Chinese University of Hong Kong in contemporary ink art conducted by Lui Shou-kwan, Wucius Wong and Laurence Tam, he now practices visual art, 3-D design and works as a visual art consultant. He also enrolled in a three-year part-time visual arts programme with the Extramural Studies Department (now SPACE, the School of Professional and Continued Education) at The University of Hong Kong.
With work that is both beautifully executed and eccentric, and his use of form and colour engaging the viewer, his first solo ink painting exhibition in 1973 was certainly a turning point in establishing his artistic career. That same year he helped set up the Hong Kong Visual Arts Society in partnership with other major players passionately preaching and spreading a unique ink culture. His artworks are included in the permanent collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art; The Hong Kong Heritage Museum; University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong; Hong Kong Arts Centre; The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
