Chao Shao-an Student Exhibition Series

Enrolling as a student of Professor Chao Shao-an in 1979, Ho Fung-lin worked with great dedication to master the techniques, principles and different genres of Chinese painting under his guidance. To further her exploration of Chinese art, she devoted herself to studying poetry under the tutelage of local poet Poon Siu-poon, which led to a realisation of how this literary form could complement and add depth to the content and expression of her art. Ho went on to read history of art and obtain a doctoral degree at the Nanjing University of the Arts. Her tireless endeavours have contributed enormously to advancing the profound legacy of the Lingnan School.

This new instalment in the "Student Exhibition Series" offers visitors a new perspective on the art of Professor Chao’s students and their continued efforts to explore new horizons beyond the confines of the various schools of art and their underlying disciplines.
