「工筆新傳——傳統藝術在香港的當代探索」作品選萃匯集了當代香港工筆名家與後進的近作,藝術家包括:石家豪、卓家慧、張惠文、陳鈞樂、梁嘉賢、梁麗雯、蔡德怡、鄭丹珊和賴筠婷,作品題材多樣,從傳統山水、花鳥、動物、人物以至界畫,全方位展現工筆繪畫的媒介、技法、美學與意涵。現今的建築、人與物,通過傳統筆墨紙絹、線條勾勒、墨彩層層渲染,在作品中精緻細膩地描畫出來。畫家們以深具古典淵源的工筆繪畫為媒介,紀錄香港的城市點滴,其作品正體現傳統與當代的連繫。九位畫家著意選擇工筆為其視覺語言,雖師法古典表達模式,但畫作均有迥異於傳統之處,且畫家的個人風格也極見當代特色,呈現嶄新美學角度,值得觀者靜觀深思。

"Transcending the Gongbi Tradition: Contemporary Hong Kong Fine-Brush Painters" is the first major showcase of recent work by contemporary Hong Kong painters who employ gongbi (fine-brush) techniques. Featuring both established and emerging artists, including Chan Kwan-lok, Sam Cheng, Cherie Cheuk Ka-wai, Eunice Cheung Wai-man, Barbara Choi Tak-yee, Lai Kwan-ting, Jess Leung Lai-man, Joey Leung Ka-yin, and Wilson Shieh, this showcase encompasses a wide array of subject matter that stems from traditional landscape (shanshui), bird-and-flower, animal, figure, and architectural (jiehua) genres. This show invites the viewer to look solely and intensely at gongbi painting – its materials, techniques, aesthetics, and spirit. In these paintings, the traditional brush and ink, xuan paper and silk, linear forms and rhythms, multiple layers of ink and colour, and delicate, meticulous treatments are blended with contemporary objects, figures, buildings, and everyday life. Because these painters’ practices engage with the city around them by using a medium with roots in antiquity, the works presented here manifest a linkage between the traditional and the contemporary. These nine artists consciously chose gongbi as their visual language. Though they were professionally trained in this historical mode, their artworks assert variation within tradition, and their individual styles have a decidedly contemporary quality that opens new aesthetic vistas and invites meditative viewing.
