AFA

“My Hands Mould My Thoughts – Sculptural Works by Wu Hin Long” had been successfully opened in Macau Art Garden on July 21. Lots of guests had come to support, including Member of the Administrative Committee of Macao Cultural Industry Fund WONG keng Chow, Representative of the Chief of The UNESCO Centre of Macau Foundation KOK Wai Kei, Representative of the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao S.A.R. Government LEONG Ya Si, Professor of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and curator LAI Yat Fong, Associate Professor of School of Arts of Macao Polytechnic Institute SOU Pui Kun, Vice President of the Macau Artists Society LOK Hei, President of the Macao Sculpture Association NG Sang Kei and Director of Art For All Society LAI Sio Kit etc. This time Wu Hin Long will showcase four different series of works, they are "Germinal Series", "Coral Series", "Sweater Series" and "Stone Series". A total of 17 ceramics sculptural works will be showcased in the exhibition. With these works, Wu evolved a new way of combining ceramic materials and contemporary sculpture arts.

This is the first solo exhibition of Wu Hin Long. His works are mainly created by the technique of pinching and mould by his heart naturally. There will not be two identical works. “Hands” and “Heart” are the important creation elements to the artist. Therefore, this exhibition is named “My Hands Mould My Thoughts”. Wu mainly uses the textural mimicry to create. It is visually exciting to the audience in order to present the unique beauty of the clay.

Wu’s works reflect his emphasis going beyond clay, glaze and firing to the connotations and forms of his artworks. He has embodied modern thinking of sculpture production in irreproducible carving techniques and extraordinary ceramic modelling, which demonstrates his eternal passion in his art pursuits.

“My Hands Mould My Thoughts – Sculptural Works by Wu Hin Long” is partly sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, Macao SAR Government and supported by Macao Sculpture Association. Media partners include Hoje Macau and Ponto Final.

The exhibition will be opened to public from July 22 to August 27, 2017.
