The HKU Museum Society is pleased to organize a guided tour of the exhibition Li Huayi / Infinities Between Ink and Gold with Curator Edward Fung. Afterwards, Catherine Kwai, Founder of the Kwai Fun Hin Art Gallery will host an afternoon for our members.
Li Huayi is an artist who has established his own style of ink painting by infusing the spirit of Chinese literati paintings with a contemporary awareness. He has seamlessly connected tradition and contemporary and established his unique relationship of heaven, earth and men. His works are widely collected by prestigious museums.
Infinites Between Ink and Gold – Recent Works of Li Huayi
The exhibition will showcase 12 pieces of Li’s recent works from 2018-2021, showing his mastery in integrating gold foil with sophisticated ink and brushstrokes on silk. The result is both impactful and unpredictable. Li also expands his oeuvre with silver foil, which produces a unique moonshine-reminiscing luminescence, echoing the unique poetic romance in the culture of traditional Chinese literati.
