MOA x Capodimonte: "The Road to the Baroque", Christopher Ku@Illuminati & in the studio: pianist Jas

2022-08-06
With many Covid travel restrictions remaining in place, taking a summer vacation, or enjoying art outside of Hong Kong, can still be a challenge this year. But if you are a lover of European art, a current exhibition of Baroque and pre-Baroque masters at the Hong Kong Museum of Art may be a breath of fresh air.

"Painting of Reverberation” is a two-part exhibition by Christopher Ku at Illuminati Fine Art. Ku says he sees his work as being like “reincarnation; it looks back at everything that has happened without any contention”. The first part of the show, the “Reverberation” series, ended on 15th July. Currently on show is the second part, the “Semantic Construction” series, which focuses on the future of painting, keeping the creative process alive, and being innovative.

Pianist Jason Wong trained under Gabriel Kwok, Head of Keyboard Studies at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Awarded a full scholarship, he went on to further his studies at the Royal College of Music in London. As a classical pianist, he has already garnered many international prizes and made his debut at the Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall in New York in 2017. He recently returned to Hong Kong from his studies. A few weeks ago, before Ben Pelletier left for his summer break, he came to our studio.
