TSANG Chui Mei focuses on painting, her motif is “scene”. She often employs colour patches and lines, the very basic elements of painting, in her recent works. The scene described, such as the sky, cliffs or coasts, which are filled with debris, peeled off rocks, and scattered with sediments, refer to the state of disharmony in the natural environment. The interlacing of positive and negative spaces, mark-makings of automatic techniques, the layering of materials and erasing techniques on the canvas are inspired by Western abstract painting art. In addition, the composition of her works refers to the sense of space and the concept of multi-perspective in Chinese ink painting.
TSANG has been awarded to participate in the Artist-In-Residency Programme – Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris 2015 (Consulate General of France in Hong Kong & Macau). She was the winner of the Philippe Charriol Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Competition in 2005 and the Hong Kong Urban Council Fine Arts Award (Painting) in 1998. Her works are collected by Hong Kong Museum of Art, Fringe Club, Hotel ICON, Hotel Stage, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong and private collectors.
