蒙各方好友厚愛本人劉智倫將於2015年1月17日至21日(星期六至星期三)假中環下亞厘畢道二號藝穗會陳麗玲畫廊公開展出個人處女油畫展覽。

 

是次展覽將展出劉智倫從他過往十年間遊歴藝術長路中的情感體驗而精選40幅油畫及15幅照片。內容環境主要借取自人體線條流露的自然美態,在畫中標視出內心深處感覺。而這些來自空氣、光線、聲音、食物、認知及啟發的來源乃是於香港出生以至長居於此及其它國家的生活見聞。

 

展覽分為三個主題部份。。 生存不易。。生存值得。。輕身舞蹈。。

 

我尋找藝術之路决定於中年之後,同時在這段時期學會了一些關於雕塑、板畫、油畫、攝影及其它許多掌握媒體的技考。也在基本藝術審美批判及設計美學上繼續磨練。。掌握多了一些表達意見慨念的媒介及技考後,每當內心的感動太强烈以至像要在胸前衝開爆破的感覺,便可利用最合適的媒體表達。每一件藝術作品都是我個人的一部份,是原創的,是獨一無二,是我存在於此時此刻而做就了一些好事的鐵證。 我做了作品,我內心就放輕了一些。。

 

每當完成一件作品,我會盡快將它遮蓋起或包裝收藏起它,我不能自制看多一眼這件作品再聯想起以往的經歴慨念而浮現內心的衝動。我真想它在我眼前消失,我的感性受不了。很多時思潮在腦海中突然壓迫了太多太多迫逼在一個極短的時空之間。要在當中自我解脫出來,事完之後心境回復平和。

 

今次展覽不單只是一個畫作及作品展,而是更進一步展示我個人的心路歴程。就像在浴室鏡子近距離見到自已覺得有點怪,用水灑上鏡子再看自已反而覺得自然得多。我很想把握這一次機會,從新感覺好東西,圓滿感及歸一感。

 

至於您們觀眾,我期望各人都能找到一些共鳴從而得到更多正能量。。找一張椅子坐下,遊蕩一下,如遇上我在展場我(一定會)請您飲杯。。嘻嘻

 

在此我實在要充心多謝多年來教導過我的各位老師,尤期是我在香港視覺藝術中心及中文大學校外進修藝術設計部的時光,多謝好友Janson及阿添,給予我很多支持及鼓勵。。多謝各位藝術路上的前輩師兄師姊,多謝我的家人,朋友,同工,哥哥, 姊姊,支持我的各方好友,及藝穗會。。 多謝來臨的各位貴賓觀眾。。我是萬分多謝您們給予我的包容及忍耐。。祝願平安喜樂

I am deeply honored and very excited to launch my first ever solo exhibition of oil paintings during 17-21 January, 2015 (Saturday to Wednesday) at Anita Chan Lai-ling Gallery, Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong.

 

The exhibition display about 40 pieces of painting works and 15 pieces of photos during my last 10 years of artistic pursuit. The ideas behind them are to cherish the human body form, with concepts drawn from deep psychological feelings through the pilgrimage of growing up and daily living in Hong Kong and elsewhere… air, light, sound, food, senses and inspirations.
 

The exhibition is divided into three areas… Survival is harsh… Survival is worthy… Dance in weightlessness…

 

I seek out to discover Fine Art in later part of my life, as I learn to use more tools that I’m capable of handling…sculptural, intaglio, painting, photography or other mix and new media… I can use the most appropriate tool to deliver a message when the voices inside me can be so loud and strong as if about to burst through space. Every painting is a part of me, is unique and original, is sufficient prove that I’ve make a positive contribution in this space and time. It is something so unsettling in my mind I have to get it released from my chest and let it out and then I considered it done for the moment.

 

Whenever I finished with a painting, I have to cover it up or even package it nicely, putting it out of my sight, as in many occasions my eyes went wet uncontrollably as I cannot believe what I have put down on canvas. More than anything else I want to get rid of the finished works one way or the other as I find them intolerable to my emotions. Many times I feel that my mind is so congest and dense and need to process so many conflicting interests so I do art…it seems to work for me and in the process of artwork making I find peace.

 

For me this exhibition is not a project but a showcase of who I truly am, and I feel I’ve to do this for myself as if critically examining my own face in front of the washroom mirror. Then spray water onto the mirror and hey it looks not bad at all… I crave to having a feeling of goodness, wholesomeness, and togetherness…

 

For you the audience visiting this exhibition, I hope you will get something relevant for yourself and that has to be positive energy…please find a chair, sit around, walk around and I promise I’ll buy you a drink if you catch me around (I sure will)… hahaha

 

Thank you to my sculpture and art teachers at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, and Chinese University School of Continuous Studies, to my dear friends Janson and Tim for so many things they’ve been bearing with me… and forerunners-in-arts, my family, friends, colleagues, brothers and sisters, supporters, and Fringe Club… and to all of you… I’m totally grateful for your treating me with tolerance… Thank You For Coming and Many Blessings to You
