Art of Nature proudly presents Lam Man Kong’s solo oil painting exhibition, Days in Paris in the coming Hong Kong Le French May, which is one of the biggest cultural events in Asia since its debut in 1993.Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, 31st May 2019, 5-8pm, and a thematic discussion, “Approach Notre Dame de Paris” starting from 6 pm. The exhibition can be viewed until 30th June 2019.
Lam Man Kong is honored as the 3rd generation distinguished France-residing artist, “humanistic artist “and “single-mindedpoet”. Lam has been an artist for nearly 50 years. During his 30-year stay in France, he spent his time flitting from Paris and other cities, and those natural and human landscapes inspired his creation. From the beautiful scenery in Paris countryside to vivid portraits, the artworks showcased in this exhibition are the record of Lam’s daily life in Paris. Especially the Notre Dame de Paris series, where Lam invested a lot of time, efforts and immense zeal. This series absorb the modelings of Classism, as well as the colors from Impressionism, which deserve to be the masterpiece among similar works. While Paris is “A moveable feast” to Ernest Hemingway, Lam has a more keen observation and direct feelings to this city. Color is applied delicately in his works and contributes to the rich flavor of life and poetic quality.Different from the idea of other contemporary artists, Lam advocates expressing inner feelings instead of emphasizing abstract concept. Only the artworks with personal emotions could have lasting charm, which will not be washed out by history, just like the Paris he portrayed.
