“Happily Bubbling Away” Solo Exhibition of Eliza Cheng
Date日期 : 03. 09. 2012 – 13. 10. 2012
A Hong Kong born Chinese, Eliza received her tertiary education in England. She has been painting since 1998, the year when she made a career turn from management consultancy to art. Having an upbringing in a traditional Chinese family, and a strong exposure to the western cultures throughout her education and career development, her contemporary art carries a blend of eastern and western cultural influence.
In summer 2011, she obtained an MFA in Painting with the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Through delving into the subject of abstract painting during her years of study, the bodies of her art have embraced a major shift from representational roots to pure conceptual compositions and abstract expressionism.
Eliza has had solo shows in Hong Kong. She also exhibits annually with Artists Abroad, an art group composed of some international artists in which she has been the Treasurer and board member since 2002. She actively participates in various local community projects and artist-in-residency programs. Last year with the “Lines” series of her works, she was shortlisted for a New York based AIR program organized by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. A piece from the “Bubbles” series also got selected into the juried competition and exhibition by Hong Kong Oil Painting Research Society. She has done commissioned work for private collectors as well as corporations. Eliza currently lives in Hong Kong where she teaches private lessons in art and painting.

夏天是花的季節，璀璨的陽光照耀在綻放的花卉上，空氣混著花香，蜂蝶繞花飛舞，讓人感受到大自然的真、善、美。, 從古至今，不少藝術家喜愛畫花，他們以不同的表達方式，或寫實、或抽象，把花卉最燦爛綻放的片刻活現於畫面上。每位藝術家各自以真誠的心捕捉不同花卉的性格，以畫筆展現它們的嬌姿美態，亦展示自己對生命的熱情及生活的熱愛。 , 夏天的「花」，是生命的象徵，讓我們感受到生存的快樂，生命的意義！藝術家以畫表達百花盛放的生命力；我們希望大家在欣賞美麗作品之餘，能為您的生活注入更多美好、美麗、美妙的事物，也讓置身高樓大廈的我們，都能感受到大自然的美。
