Francis YU Wai Luen 余偉聯

簡介 Biography

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Francis Yu Wai Luen went abroad to study art and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts from York University, Toronto, an Master of Arts degree in Painting from the Royal College of Art, London, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in the theory and practice of painting at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Yu taught at Hong Kong Art School between 2000 and 2008. He is now working as an Associate Professor at the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University. Yu’s artistic practice revolves around painting. He takes an interdisciplinary approach, developing his paintings through the synthesis of different art forms, and working with texts, images, objects and spaces in a continual interrogation of the painting process. He has undertaken a series of research projects to examine his conception of ‘total painting’. His creative outputs have been featured in twelve solo exhibitions and more than sixty group exhibitions over the last twenty years.

余偉聯出生及成長於香港,畢業於多倫多約克大學藝術系,其後於倫敦皇家藝術學院獲取繪畫碩士,之後於杭州中國美術學院研習,獲取繪畫創作實踐與理論研究博士。曾任教香港藝術學院,現職香港浸會大學視覺藝術院副教授。二十多年來一直從事繪畫創作,曾舉辦合共十二次個展,並參與六十多個本地及海外聯展。近年以「總體繪畫」為主軸,整合不同媒介和領域,探索繪畫與跨學科藝術實踐的更多可能。

Painting can be characterised through the development of hand skills and the exploration embodied in the action of art making. Hand skills can be broad, they encompass an acknowledgement towards the world and a sense of understanding as well as awareness.

繪畫的特性在於通過手作技藝去建立,從創作行為中去發現。手作技藝並不狹隘,它包含着對世間萬物的一種知道,一種領悟。
