About the Artist

Cheung Tsz-ki graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and received the “HKOP Award in Printmaking” in 2018. Some people use art as a way to map out their nationality and identity; some seeks the meaning of life through doubting art; and some sees art as a source of emotional sustenance. Cheung is searching for a reason to make art. Perhaps he is also trying to represent the pursuit of good with his works, while acknowledging powerlessness and loss in life.

About the Exhibit

Whether it is a burning roadblock on the street, or the bushfires in Australia, the imagery of fire is no stranger to us in recent years. To Cheung Tsz-ki, fires are not only associated with danger or disaster. The flickering flames we see in the city manifest complex emotions: candle flames on a birthday cake encapsulate hope towards the future; burning incense sticks embody longing for the deceased; and fireworks on 1 July elicit feelings of resignation and irony. Cheung attempts to show various states of flame with abstract imagery, inviting the audience to contemplate his art.
