A boxed set of 4 fine bone china sinner plates by Firenze Lai (edition of 30)

Firenze Lai says that she knows her studio of a few hundred square feet intimately; from the textures of its surfaces to the way the breeze blows into the room. The spaces depicted in her paintings are equally intimate. When curators seem to be at a loss for words to discuss troubled times, fear of containment, and the feeling of being completely enmeshed in a space, they turn to Lai's paintings, which have been shown as part of Para Site's A Journal of the Plague Year. Fear, ghosts, rebels. SARS, Leslie and the Hong Kong story (17 May–20 July 2013), and A Hundred Years of Shame—Songs of Resistance and Scenarios for Chinese Nations (6 March–17 May 2015). Further, Lai has shown work in international solo and group presentations, including Turbulence at Mirrored Gardens in Guangzhou (29 October–28 November 2015), the 10th Shanghai Biennale, Social Factory (23 November 2014–31 March 2015), the 2015 New Museum Triennial, Surround Audience (25 February–24 May 2015), and in Venice for the 57th Venice Biennale (13 May–26 November 2017). More recently, a selection of nine of Lai's paintings appear in Tai Kwun Contemporary's Contagious Cities: Far Away, Too Close (26 January–21 April 2019).

‘Essence D’ by Guan Yi (Unframed)

HK$3,250.00

Unframed 42x59.4cm Artist: Guan Yi

Guan Yi was born in the ’60s, and like many of the artists who grew up in that area he holds pure cultural ideals. In the ’80s, he was even something of an avant-garde artist himself. The logo of the 1989 China contemporary art exhibition — the “No U-Turn” sign — hangs behind his headboard. In 1993 Guan started running a business. But still, driven by his personal philosophy and rabid passion for art, he later returned to the art world. Before that, aside from in the company of business acquaintances or family members, Guan rarely mentioned his love of art. After returning to the art fold around 2000, Guan Yi has put no limitations on his art collection. In 2001 he established the “Guan Yi contemporary art museum,” with his collection being referred to by Westerners as “the best way to understand Chinese contemporary art.” In 2002, Guan collected his first installation work, Huang Yong Ping’s “World Factory” — a colossal 260 square meter rendering of the Chinese map made of metal bars. Between 2003-2005, Guan Yi collected a series of works by Huang that range from 1985-2005, 16 works in all. Soon, he had become Huang Yong Ping’s top collector.

Hu Qinwu Limited Edition Lightbox - Black & Yellow

HK$1,200.00

Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by Hu Qinwu

Hu Qinwu (born 1969) was born in Shandong, China, and currently works in Beijing as a painter, photographer and printmaker.

Qinwu studied oil painting at the Yantai Normal Academy, Shandong where he graduated in 1990. He went onto attain a Masters degree in Painting from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 2008. In 2010 Qinwu taught as a guest lecturer at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing.[2] Qinwu's choice of materials for his paintings align with the scholarly tradition of Chinese ink painting. However, Qinwu subverts the traditions of the medium through a style that aligns more closely with the aestheticisms of the Abstract movement. The concept behind his style and technique, however, is informed by Zen Buddhist philosophies and practices. Critics have noted that Qinwu's command of ink, tempera, acrylic, oil and print media signals the germination of an exciting new approach to traditional techniques and the burgeoning of an abstract style amongst a young generation of artists in Beijing.

William Furniss Limited Edition Lightbox - Rear Window 03 (Video Piece)

HK$4,000.00

Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by William Furniss

William Furniss is a urbanist and architectural photographer based in Hong Kong. 

He was born in London in 1970. An early interest in science and design led to an engineering degree at Exeter University in England before beginning his photographic career in 1991. Initially taken with the idea of working as a portrait photographer, Furniss assisted luminaries of the London scene such Patrick Litchfield and Terry O’Neill. 

In 1993 Furniss was encouraged by friends already in residence to visit Hong Kong. Deng Xiaoping had reputedly said “To get rich is glorious” and the world’s focus had suddenly swung towards China. Fully intending to continue portrait photography on arriving in Hong Kong, his work took a marked change of direction. 

The alien visual landscape of Hong Kong reignited a fascination with documenting the immediate environment; the rural English landscapes of his youth now being replaced by the chaotic cityscapes of Asia. Initial simple and straight forward records on film developed into ever more complicated narratives through multiple exposures and contact sheets. 

Furniss’ interest in cities led him to New York in 1999 with two years spent there developing his approach which today favors pre-visualisation of the image and camera-only manipulations to create a subjective but recognizable record of our time and a testament to the belief that cities should be vibrant, enjoyable, sustainable, democratic places that enable a positive future for us on this planet. Numerous exhibitions have been held of Furniss’ work which features in collections in Hong Kong and elsewhere. His most recent show “Reflection” being his first collaboration with French sculptor and fellow Hongkonger Polo Bourieau.

Artist Statement:

"I photograph 21st century urban phenomena. 

Photography can all too easily stop at the level of appearances and go no further. My work is more than that, is it evocative of my experience, offers me consolation in spite of the times, and is a reminder to exist in the moment. The act of photography is my motivation, the outcome is a signpost to a better life.

My photography starts with a chance encounter, briefly the potential for a photograph will appear, a minute flash of what “might be”—then flicker away just as suddenly.  And then the ideas come, my mind forms an optimal visual, and finally, I create those ideas in camera. 

In reality a single image of mine can take years for all the right factors to come together, not just photographic factors but life circumstances too; what I am forced to create is meticulously managed serendipity. My equipment is very simple. At best camera, lens, tripod, and feet. The subjects are complicated, I must employ a simple approach to stand any chance of things making sense. 

I love the crowded streets of Hong Kong but I don’t want to engage or simply snap what is obvious. I want to record unique circumstances that describe an essential component of the place. I never want to tell the whole story, better to tell the tale picture by picture. 

For many years my main subject has been Hong Kong. It is a tumultuous yet highly accessible urban environment. It is constantly inspiring to me. I am grateful for the life I have led here, and seek to celebrate, preserve, and disseminate the city’s importance through my photographic work."
