Unrestrained Passions: The Art of Ng Yuet-lau at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum

. July 10, 2010 . 0 Comments

In this new Exhibition, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum offers visitors a glimpse into the achievements of Chao Shao-an’s students in their continued efforts to explore new horizons beyond the confines of different schools of art and their underlying principles. Open 11 July 2010 – 7 February 2011

Ng Yuet-lau became a student of Chao Shao-an (1905-1998) and Huang Junbi (1898-1991) in the 1970’s and, drawing inspiration from the two masters, she burnished her traditional techniques while pursuing a spirit of creativity in her art. Ng excels in a wide range of subjects but is particularly fond of painting landscapes, and her mastery of this traditional genre highlights her virtuosity. A hard-working artist who is always ready to absorb new elements in her paintings, Ng has succeeded in developing a personal style that nevertheless reflects the art of her teachers from which it has evolved.

Under the umbrella of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum presents a unique mix of history, art and culture in a great variety of programmes that cater for the wide-ranging interests of the public.

Featuring an exhibition area of some 7,500 square metres, the the Hong Kong Heritage Museum houses six permanent galleries – the Orientation Theatre, the New Territories Heritage Hall, the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall, the T.T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art, the Chao Shao-an Gallery and the Children’s Discovery Gallery – as well as six thematic galleries.
