“Hong Kong by Guo Zhiquan: Cityscapes in Ink” Exhibition

The University Museum and Art Gallery is pleased to present “Hong Kong by Guo Zhiquan: Cityscapes in Ink” from September 8 to November 12, 2017, an exhibition of 14 Hong Kong-related artworks by Guo Zhiquan. Born in Leshan (Sichuan Province, China) in 1942, Guo graduated from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and has exhibited widely in China. This is his first solo show in Hong Kong.

Guo is a member of the Henan Artists Association, the Chinese Academy of Poetry, Painting and Calligraphy, and he is affiliated with the Ministry of Culture, as well as the East & West Artists Association. He worked as the Dean of the Fine Arts Department of Luoyang University in 1986, where he specialised in landscape paintings, as well as bird-and-flower work and art criticism.

Guo is regularly the subject matter of art critics; for example, in 1993 Muxun LU, a renowned Chinese contemporary theorist, wrote an article titled ‘Boundless World Shaped by the Soul of Mountains and Rivers’, engaging with the artist’s exemplary landscape paintings. Subsequently, Guo exhibited at the National Art Museum of China and Tsinghua University, among other more academic institutions, and his work has been reviewed and praised by many established critics.

《墨韻城市:郭志全在香港》展覽

香港大學美術博物館將於2017年9月8日至11月12日舉辦《墨韻城市:郭志全在香港》展覽,展出由藝術家郭志全創作的十四幅以香港為主題的作品。郭志全,一九四二年生於中國四川省樂山,畢業於四川美術學院,其作品曾於中國各地展出,而此次香港大學美術博物館呈現郭志全首次於香港的個人展覽。

郭志全是河南省美術家協會理事、文化部轄下中國詩書畫研究院研究員、東西方藝術家協會常務理事。一九八六年時任洛陽大學美術系主任,並於該校專攻風景畫與花鳥畫的創作,以及藝術評論。

郭志全的藝術亦是藝術評論研究的焦點範本之一。例如中國當代著名理論家魯慕迅先生於一九九三年撰文《山魂水魄意茫茫——讀郭志全的山水畫》,闡述郭志全的經典風景畫作。隨後郭志全於中國美術館、清華大學等諸多學術機構舉辦展覽,其作品更贏得眾多蜚聲全國的評論家、雜誌報刊的好評。
