Event Details

香港大學饒宗頤學術館今年舉辦「藝道同行」展覽系列,展出與饒宗頤教授於上世紀六十至八十年代在香港有極深交往,並在藝術創作上互相切磋砥礪的四位藝術家之作品。四位藝術家包括王漢翹先生、彭襲明先生、萬一鵬先生及蕭立聲先生。
該系列的第四個展覽將展出蕭立聲先生 (1919-1983) 之藝術作品。
蕭先生為廣東潮州人士,是饒教授的同鄉好友。蕭先生在潮州時已經是著名的人物畫家,來港後亦以繪寫美人為主,但也偶有創作山水、花鳥作品。
在上世紀五十年代後期,蕭先生與饒教授、萬一鵬先生及彭襲明先生時常於饒教授或萬先生家中聚會,一起研究中國繪畫及時相合作。當時,饒教授建議蕭先生在人物畫上應發展出自己的風格,並提議他可在宋代牧谿上人及梁楷的簡筆人物畫的基礎上變化出一條新路徑。於是,他便以這兩人的簡筆法,開始了他的羅漢繪畫,並成為了其繪畫特色。故此,在六十年代後,大家都把蕭先生稱為「蕭羅漢」。
是次的展品主要為饒教授及家人所藏,其中亦有一些是從各藏家處借得。這批作品包括他早期的工筆美人、後期的羅漢作品,亦有一些山水畫作及與饒教授合作的繪畫。從這些作品中,可見到蕭羅漢各個時期的藝術面目。

The Companionship of Art (IV) – Exhibition of Artworks by Siu Lap-sing

In this year, Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong will organize a series of exhibitions - “The Companionship of Art”, displaying artworks by four artists who had a profound friendship with Professor Jao Tsung-i in the 60’s to 80’s of the 20th century, including Mr. Wong Hon-kiu, Mr. Peng Ximing, Mr. Van I-Pong, and Mr. Siu Lap-sing.

The last exhibition of the series will present Mr. Siu Lap-sing’s artworks.

Siu Lap-sing (1919-1983), native to Chaozhou of Guangdong province, from the same hometown of Professor Jao. Even when Mr. Siu was still in Chaozhou, he had already been a well-known artist of human figure painting. After settling in Hong Kong, he mainly depicted beauties but occasionally created landscape and flower-and-bird paintings.
In the late 50’s of the 20th century, Mr. Siu and Professor Jao, Mr. Van, and Mr. Peng had frequent contact, usually getting together at Professor Jao’s or Mr. Van’s place, discussing Chinese painting and producing artworks collaboratively. Professor Jao suggested Siu developing his own style in human figure painting based on Muxi Fachang and Liang Kai of the Song dynasty. Since then, Siu had combined the simplified technique of both masters and began his Lohan painting, and later it had become his characteristic art form. Starting from the 60’s, he has been called “Lohan Siu”.

In this exhibition, most of the artworks are collections of Professor Jao and his family, and some are from various collectors in Hong Kong, containing meticulous beauty-figure paintings in his early period and later works in the topic of Lohan, as well as landscape paintings, and collaborative paintings with Professor Jao. From these exhibits, the features of each phase of Mr. Siu are clearly demonstrated.
