Promotion Project of Macao Artists : Murmur of Impermanence – paintings of Andre LUI CHAK KEONG


Opening: 15/6/2015  18:30

Rui Cunha Foundation Gallery


I have been inspired by Lou Lim Ieoc Garden for my paintings since 2008. Though the garden is not big, when I walk in between the rock works, bamboo grove, ponds and pavilions, I observe the constant changes at the gardenscape and I fathom, in between light and shadow, that, changes also take place at everything in the world. When naming the exhibition, I was inspired by the Chinese character Yun Cong (cloud and soft low sound made by a stream) that I saw in between the rock works.  The inconstant cloud and stream are an analogy to my quest, or the subject, in this exhibition, therefore, I name this exhibition Yun Cong  in Chinese and Murmur of Impermanence in English.
