When I Draw, I Think of…
by Gallery Exit
Location: Gallery Exit
Artist(s): Sarah LAI, Furze CHAN, Casper CHAN, Pongyu WAI, KONG Chun Hei
Date: 10 Jul - 22 Aug 2009

Gallery EXIT is delighted to present our first summer group show, “when i draw, i think of you”, featuring works on paper by dedicated local artists born in the 1980s: Furze Chan, Casper Chan, Chunhei Kong, Sarah Lai, Pongyu Wai and Cam Wong.

These 6 local artists of the young generation counter the fast pacing world with their deliberate and contemplating works. They share a common dedication to the act of drawing. In their private hours, they chose to sit and remain, to slow down and contemplate in order to discover what they are searching for. Drawing is often a spontaneous activity, but it could also be a slow and pain staking process. Glowing up in the age of information overflow, in which fast and effective communication is the front burner, these artists present their time-consuming and laborious works that demonstrate the values of practice and hard work, the virtues of patience and perseverance. When a focused image begins to form under the hands, it is a great joy, born and bred in solitude, to be shared with someone. It is in this solitude, that we begin to understand each other’s existential loneliness and isolation from the society.
