甫從香港中文大學取得藝術碩士學位的卓家慧，早已有豐富的參展經驗，在校便以優異的學業與創作成績前後榮獲十數種不同的獎項，其進修、實習、交流的蹤跡更遍及南韓、台北、北京、浙江等地。其刻劃入微且躍然於紙上的畫風，早為藏家與市場所肯定。 從風格源流來看，卓家慧的工筆畫作品受到宋代院體繪畫的影響，著重於細緻的描寫和設色，雅而不俗。但是，她並不是在描繪光影、空間等技巧上著意，而是關心氣氛的體現－一種經常在早期中國文學藝術中出現的，強烈地感覺到時光悠忽無常的本質。 是次展覽，表面上雖以俏皮逗人的圖像作為呈現，實則同時探索許多生命的哲思議題。每幅作品中展示出娑婆世界的眾生景象，在隸屬於自己生命支線中亦適逢各自的殊勝因緣。此場由卓家慧所啟程的時空航行，取奇珍異獸的童話世界為衣飾、以圖像創作的藝術世界為骨架，藝術家更邀請著觀者放下現實生活中的包袱，藉由倘佯於悠恬閒適的幻想世界中，感受在無垠時空中由創作者低聲傾訴著對於生活的所有沉思。
Daguan Gallery is proud to present the first exhibition in the new year – The Time of Flow.
Cheuk has established herself as a meticulous artist soon after graduation, doing extremely well in art fairs and auction houses such as Sotheby’s and Ravenel. We are pleased to announce Cheuk Ka-wai, Cherie’s first solo exhibition in a commercial gallery and are delighted to publish her first exhibition catalogue. Having just graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master’s degree, Cheuk is already an experienced exhibitor and frequent aware winner. She has exhibited and worked extensively internationally, including South Korea, Taipei, Beijing and Zhejiang. Her lively and meticulous depictions of animals are well received by collectors and the art market.
Judging from the style of Cheuk’s works, her meticulous paintings are influenced by the court paintings from Song dynasty which emphasises the delicate compositions and colours which are most elegant. She not only pays particular attention to the portrayal of light and space, but emphasises on the overall picture as a whole – something that often appeared in the art and literature from the early dynasties, a strong sense of towards the untouchable flow of time. The paintings included in this exhibition may appear to be lively and sweet, yet many of them aim to discuss the meaning of life from a philosophical angle. Each painting displays a scene taken from this colourful world, living the life in contentment. This journey through time led by Cheuk Ka-wai is woven with magical creatures from fairy tales and picturesque art worlds; the artist invites the viewers to leave the reality behind and immerse themselves in the boundless imaginary world.
