"Blessing Hong Kong: Reimagining Oracle Bones Inscription" Charity Exhibition
AMEF is delighted to announce our debut charity exhibition in Fine Art Asia 2022 – “Blessing Hong Kong, Reimagining Oracle Bones Inscription”, featuring Hong Kong young artists, Wong Yee-ki Gessena, and Cheung Sui-kwan Natalie. The exhibition showcases fascinating artworks created by participants from our art workshops, in collaboration with local artists. By using “Oracle Bones Inscription” as an inspiration, this workshop aimed to lead participants to seek the origin of their writing script, “Chinese”, to encourage their exploration and reconnection to their cultural background and self-identity, respond to Hong Kong’s history and culture.
In this workshop, local artists Gessena, Natalie, and Chinese calligraphy artist Chui Pui-chee guided participants to explore via historical and etymology backgrounds of Oracle Bones Inscription and the diversity of textures and media materials. Participants thus reinvent and create their own version of Oracle Bones Scripts in form of ceramics with their distinctive perspectives and unique ways of artistic expression.
*All proceeds will donate to AMEF in support of its various services.

WONG Yee-ki Gessena received her BA (2010) and MFA (2013) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, she specialises in Chinese Gongbi Painting and loves to explore the energy of lines and the narrative nature of the kind.
She is born and raised in Hong Kong, and her interest in exploring the energy of lines with her exuberant colours tells us the many stories and imaginations from her prism of creativity.
Her works exhibit in International exhibitions both in Hong Kong and overseas and are popular among private collectors.
Cheung Sui-kwan Natalie graduated from the Fine Arts Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2015. Cheung is keen to work with nature’s most basic and robust material - clay, a media that exemplifies the meaning of art and everyday life, allowing us to express, experiment and build connections between people. The artist pays attention to nature and the pieces and fragments around the city, she tries to preserve the precious, neglected and forgotten objects using clay and the help of textures, brushstrokes and glazes to create sceneries.
