Stephen WONG Chun Hei
3 June - 9 July 2016
Gallery EXIT is pleased to announce “Daydream Travelogues”, an exhibition of new works by Stephen WONG Chun Hei. This will be the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery. It will open on 3 June 2016 and remain on view through 9 July. An opening reception will be held on Friday, 3 June 2016 from 6 pm until 8 pm.
The paintings on view in “Daydream Travelogues” reveal WONG’s fascination in wandering between actual and imaginary natural scenery. Various distinctive scenic views continuously arise in the artist’s mind even on the days he is working in the studio. These scenes are prompted by the artist’s visual experience during his long hiking trips, or composed by his intuitive imagination. Accordingly, WONG’s landscape paintings provide a sense of mystery, being familiar yet out of place.
