Argus FONG Tsz Leong 方梓亮
Argus Fong Tsz Leong received his Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) degree co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School in 2015, major in painting. Argus’ work is like a collection of piecemeal fragments in his everyday life - a collection of seemingly unrelated bits and parts as in a photomontage. The work reflects his interpretations on identities and human natures. Inspired by the traces on the objects, most of his works are oil paintings on wasted materials, and are characterised by his expressive linear brushstrokes.
In the process, I observe and experiment with the flexibility of the linear form, in order to express some thoughts.
Feeling lost, I pick up the painting tools and paint; it feels good, but I cannot tell which part is actually good.
Seemingly feeling good about myself, I continue to paint in a daze, but I am aware that my technique is still green.
They talk as always, nobody would wonder. And as always, nobody would care the residual temperature at the window made by the daily sunshine.
