Titled “Between Breaths”, it encourages our awareness of breathing, of slowing down and, as he says, of “the art of life between breaths”.
His “slices”, whether vertical or horizontal, give a glimpse of imagined landscapes. Fung’s background in traditional ink painting is a springboard for experimentation, with different materials and techniques tools for expression. The use of space and silence is eloquent, something too often missing in contemporary painting.
His use of clingfilm, metal leaf…
and loose pigment expands the traditional repertoire and gives our imagination more to play with.
This show is another example of slow looking which I can’t recommend too highly.
