In collaboration with the Museum of East Asian Art, Koon Wai Bong, the Hong Kong ink artist, establishes an introspective exploration that presents his unique vision of contemporary ink art. The well-established artist, Koon, has been immersed in the tradition of brush and ink, while remaining open to artistic media and notions from various cultures. To mediate different notions about aesthetics and creative practices, Koon builds an interesting dialogue with the museum collection and looks into traditional aesthetics, literati values, and formal expressions of Chinese art. The dialogues enable the artist to review his own notion of contemporary ink works and how one might become enriched by the repository of Chinese cultures. This illustrated book explores Koon's artistic reflections on the museum collection and his artistic achievements in the wider context of contemporary ink painting through essay and text by local art historians, curators, and critics.
