Don’t Shoot the Messenger
by Hanart TZ Gallery
Location: Hanart TZ Gallery
Artist(s): HO Sin Tung
Date: 1 Dec - 31 Dec 2010

An exhibition inspired by one of life’s common situations: the desire to see some one, but that person is nowhere around.  No matter whether they’ve been taken by death or, though alive, have simply moved on, they remain forever distant.  The subjects of my painting include actors or actresses who died young, fictional characters who perish in novels, and all those who have been killed by natural disaster or on the battlefield.  Perhaps they once carried within them the grief of personal loss, but today they are not only my substitute for those whose names will never be spoken, they themselves have become the subject of mourning.
