Manling Cheung
Man-Ling Cheung’s works convey eternal elements and evoke people’s thinking about the origin of life, human existence and sexual relations. The eight works exhibited this time were created in the form of Burning Ink. He first created the feeling of burning and turning into ashes with ink, reclaimed rice paper discarded by different ink painters, and re-composed a sense of history of discarded fragments. Then he painted with ink, tea and other natural pigments to explore beliefs, The relationship between superstition, survival and nature.
