Well said, Kris!  
 
"our current HK "cultural icons" with financial capability are usually people with questionable taste and value."  
 
Money, especial quick cash, can buy LV and/or Armani etc but not taste....

Tanuski, thanks for the comments! Walking through few of the workshops at Fo Tan felt a little like "campus open house" for me too. Some of the occupants appeared to be more concern about acting like artists rather than creating art. The “Bohemian” way however, in HK is not the only answer. I very much agree with the issue on limited resources and need to develop a sustainable market for art to survive at all levels. But the truth is our current HK "cultural icons" with financial capability are usually people with questionable taste and value. And definitely not much to do with anything cultural! Hopefully down the road when the market reaches maturity, the "genuine article" will find the followers it deserves and open doors at a new level.

BTW for those who cannot afford a real Brancusi, it is your chance of a lifetime. Go buy this “made in China” and save a bundle.  
 
It is sad to see the FAKE trend started from a $70 HKD LV handbag and extends all its way to Fo-Tan. Oh yes, that includes the imitation of a Bohemian artistic life style.  
 
Do I need to explain further? Guess not…….

No wonder Kris titled this link ”fartsy”…… Definitely the right place for the exhibitionists!

藝術家的心靈角落  
 
 
前天參觀「伙炭藝術工作室」時,最令我感到讚嘆的是這群藝術工作者對生活的堅持和  
 
態度。生活給予他們很多限制,但同時給予他們靈感。  
 
 
在看藝術品同時,我也看他們的生活。藝術家是最懂得享受生活的一撮人,皆因他們的  
 
工作就是靠觀察生活,然後把精華放進作品中。他們不須用金錢來營造品味,因為他們  
 
本身已是品味的最佳演譯。

......well ?  
 
Anyway, as kris and I continued to raid the studios, we came by a corridor on 14/F (or was it 13 ?) where the familiar voice of Miles Davis caught our attention.  
 
Naturally we followed path of the music and discovered where that precious chest in the dungeon lies. Before our eyes were pieces of gems (aka sculptures), one after another, confidently expressing themselves with pride and glory ....

The sculptures are grand to look at distantly, while exhibiting tremendous details at close sighting.

When we were exclaiming how materials of different character can merge with each other so seamlessly, a gentleman approached us. That was the first time we spoke to the proud creator of those great artworks - Danny Lee.  
 
Danny, amongst many other titles and qualifications that he holds, is the chairman of the Visual Art Society of Hong Kong. His sculptures, mainly constructed with metal, marbe & wood, are collected by numerous local & international organizations and featured in places including the Hong Kong International Airport and The Elements. Throughout our conversation, Danny sincerely described how he produces his pieces from scratch, and never let alone any questions we asked.

I could have left you with more photos of the art pieces, but everyone should physically go and see them to do them justice. To me, they should be in MOMA.  
 
Danny, thank you so much for your hospitality !

In Art, simplicity can be a complex procedure. Philosophically and physically. This is why the "medium" in which an artist choose to work with is a pain staking decision. A simple little bronze sculpture requires almost same facility found in an industrial grade manufacturing plant. The understanding of this process is of paramount importance in order to appreciate the different level of intensity behind the making of a piece of Art. Also an excellent starting point for our exploration in why the Fotanian Studios are not just a walk in the park.

Morning everyone.  
 
evp1312, chanel is right about your photos, they look great!  
 
BIRDHOUSE, what a surprise to see you here in our quiet little art joint! Be careful with this Mona Lisa thing, the truth can be disturbing. Very disturbing.

Morning art freaks.  
 
More notes and photos from the recent HK art show "The Fotanian Open Studios 2010" and a new thread seems like a good idea. All photos and comments from the show are welcome here.  
 
To put it in a bag, "art" is about giving ordinary objects extraordinary meaning. Or for those couldn't care less on philosophical mumbo-jumbo, just think of it as giving life to a dead fish. From this perspective, plenty of "dead fish" everywhere, everyday waiting to be discovered. The real reason however, for this thread is to explore further some of the incredible talents I saw at the "The Fotanian Open Studios 2010", an intriguing cross-section of styles from both the young and the masters paving a new road with great energy towards HK art.
