Two painters are having dialogues through their landscape paintings.
A dialogue between two painters:
Virginia on Argus
His painting process encapsulates a micro world transformed into one with endless night skies and boundless mountains. And between it all, exists people with their own diversity. Perhaps this dream scape is something which he desires.
Argus on Virginia
Her landscape painting evokes the feeling of an old photo with it’s faded colour and over-exposed lighting, yet there is a curious shade of red. What could the red signify? Could it be the moment a sun sets and the night breeze sweeps in? Or even a red gas that replaces the very air we breathe in?

Virginia LO was born in Hong Kong. She received her Master of Fine Art degree and Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) degree, co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School, in 2005 and 2002 respectively. In 2001, LO received the membership of Golden Key International Honor Society. She is currently a part-time lecturer at Hong Kong Art School.
FONG Tsz Leong, Argus, received his BA (Fine Art) degree from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University in 2015, major in painting.
Argus’ work is like a collection of piecemeal fragments in his everyday life – a collection of seemingly unrelated bits and parts as in a photomontage. The work reflects his interpretations on identities and human natures.
Inspired by the traces on the objects, most of his works are oil paintings on wasted materials, and are characterised by his expressive linear brushstrokes.
