In order to showcase the artworks of these two artists, the Cultural Affairs Bureau specially organized this exhibition as a way to encourage local artists to keep moving forward in their artistic career.
The exhibition features a total of 36 pieces (sets) of paintings, including the artists’ winning works in 2017 and their new creations in 2019. In the 18 pieces (sets) by Tam Chek Wun, the artist unfolds the imposing presence of precipitous mountains with his consummate command of ink, while depicting the relaxing ambience of Macao as a small city. The other 18 pieces (sets) by Lao Chon Hong, inspired by the hexagrams from the Book of Changes, ingeniously invite viewers to contemplate life and its meaning.
