DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Moments in the star ferry is one of the most painted subject by Lau, and “Exile” is one of them. A sense of oppression comes from the pressure of city life seeped from the calm painted image of Lau’s works. Star ferry was once a transportation that he often took, he observed there are two types of people in the ferry: tourists and people who go to or off from work. Those weary passengers get to rest slightly in the ferry before they have to continue their endless journey of life. Where is our destination actually?

Exile“是劉氏經常繪畫的題材--渡輪的片刻。他的作品從平靜的畫面構圖裡滲透城市壓力施加在我們身上的壓迫感。渡輪曾經是劉氏經常搭成的交通工具,在他眼中在往返尖沙咀和中環的除了遊客,最主要就是營營役役的上班族,疲累的搭客在甲板上稍稍平靜片刻又繼續彷佛沒有盡頭的旅程。究竟我們的目的地又在哪裡?
