How did Hong Kong, once known as a "cultural desert," become an Asian art hub?

Magnus Renfrew, who served as the director of Art Basel Hong Kong and Art HK until 2015, stated in an interview, "Hong Kong has a sound legal and financial system; its geographical location as the center of Asia, connecting the East and West; quality hotels, diverse service industries, and an English-speaking environment make Hong Kong extremely potential to develop into an art capital." In fact, in 1974 and 1986, international art auction houses Sotheby's and Christie's respectively shifted their focus from Taipei to Hong Kong for their Asian operations. Following this, art galleries in Hong Kong sprouted like mushrooms after the rain. The allure of the city's economy has led many internationally renowned galleries to choose Hong Kong as their base for distributing art in Asia. This, along with other factors, has propelled Hong Kong to surpass cities such as Shanghai, Singapore, Beijing, and even Taiwan. The acquisition of Art HK by the Basel Group further solidified Hong Kong's position as the trading hub for art in Asia. In such a scenario, it becomes a challenge to delineate the development of Hong Kong's art essence from within itself.

The warm sun rising above the cold land.

In the frigid lands of Canada, there exists an artist with a unique inspiration. Her brush captures the mysterious essence of the Pacific Northwest Coast. She is none other than Emily Carr. In this land embraced by nature, she is not just a painter but also a shining star in Canadian art history.

Carr, with her unique style blending modernism and post-impressionism, eloquently narrates the beauty of Canada's nature. "Indian Church" is one of her most famous masterpieces, portraying not only indigenous culture but also a profound appreciation for the landscape. Yet, she did not confine herself to established artistic paths. Instead, she later shifted her focus to the scenic beauty of nature, particularly the mysterious scenes of the forest. In Carr's paintings, the forests, beaches, and skies are depicted vividly from her distinctive perspective, outlining the grandeur of the Pacific Northwest Coast. She intricately integrates the local people with nature in her own unique way, creating a refined Pacific myth in her imagination. This painting technique and pursuit of visual quality make her works one of the most captivating representatives in Canadian art.

On Emily Carr's canvas, we witness a unique understanding and representation of Canadian indigenous culture. She was one of the earliest artists to attempt capturing the Canadian spirit in a modern style, using her works to narrate a story bridging indigenous and Western cultures. In this vast and cold land, her artistic culture is like a warm hue, unique and unforgettable.

She is not just a painter but also an icon of Canada. Her works are not just individual paintings but also heartfelt praises to this land and its local culture. In the cold of Canada, her art shines like a warm ray of sunshine, illuminating the artistic sky of Canada.

除了這些大師的作品,博物館還展出了大量的民間浮世繪作品,讓我深刻感受到了浮世繪藝術的廣泛群眾基礎和深厚文化底蘊。這些畫作雖然不像大師之作那樣精湛,但它們更加貼近生活,充滿了濃郁的鄉土氣息和民間風情。

若有機會造訪松本,可在此駐足一番,隨畫神往,飄搖至過往歲月,個中滋味,便可意會些許。

The sky is the ocean's past, and the ocean writes a letter to its past self: Is there still a way out of the maze? At the end of the winding staircase, amidst the beautiful and eerie blood-red sky, I put on my helmet.
