Wong Lap Wing

Before entering Hong Kong Baptist University, Wong Lap Wing (Harrison) mainly made problem-solving or problem-concerning designs. During his 2-year studies at the AVA, his art genre and philosophy changed from graphics, semiotics and interactive media to an approach of abstract imagery.

In 2017, Harrison combined previous media knowledge and expanded his practice to media arts. Alternative printing sparked his creative mind to consider abstract forms of expression in his work.

Harrison’s artmaking philosophy excludes the need for a particular skill or craftsmanship such that they will not dominate the expression of a higher concept. To him, understanding of his art should come from the art and visualisation of the individuals only, making it unnecessary to give directions to the audience who view his work. Even though such freedom in interpretation and visualisation might lead to “misunderstanding” of the original thoughts, Harrison does not dwell his authority as an author with the “right answer”. Since Barthes introduced the concept of “death of the author”, he also considers himself “dead”. He believes that an idea can be as random as it seems, but there exists a logic of some sort regardless. His practice will continue to follow the mystery of the mind’s logical flow.

黃立榮的作品從實在和寫實概念逐漸轉為抽象概念,他將以往視覺藝術院的訓練融合抽象概念,並在另類顯影中發現到無形意象的潛力。

黃立榮在創作時,會避免過分表現某類技巧,導致獨特的意象被掩蓋。對他而言,觀眾可能無法理解,或對「作品原意」有所誤解,他亦無意爭取藝術家的詮釋權,避免為作品添加過多引導。

黃立榮希望繼續以創作探索混亂而富有詩意的意象。
