This exhibition separates into two parts: Firstly, it represents four paintings of Corn Ho Shuk Mei’s Landscape-memory series, which was started in 2013. Secondly, the latest series of Sea and Islands will be shown in this show, she has studied deeper between psychological state and dislocation of landscape in memory.
Landscape-memory series was featured in her third solo exhibition in April this year. In this project, she fascinates at people’s innermost world and the disappeared sights. She interviewed people about their personal experiences. Her paintings gradually displayed their innermost world as the interviews went deeper and deeper. This resembles the nature of oil painting, layer-by-layer and long lasting.
Sea and Islands series particularly focus on featuring absence state in memory. Unlike pervious series, paintings were presented by expressional and abstract brush stokes. Colour becomes main visual language in this project. Here, Corn Ho raises questions about how realistic of memories are. Does we select which part of experience into our minds, meanwhile how much of emotion or imagination adding into our memories? To her, the existence of memories is close to painting creation.
