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.

在 2017 年,黃立榮的作品開始由實在轉為抽象概念。他把在視覺藝術院之前的訓練和抽象性融合,並在另類顯影中發現到無形意象的潛力。在創作時,他會避免因某類技巧的突出表現掩蓋更高的意象,對他而言,即使可能令觀眾無法理解或誤解所謂「作品原意」,他亦無謂在作品添加過多引導,也無心固執於藝術家自己的詮釋權。他的作品會繼續探索意象的混亂邏輯及詩意。
