At this exhibition, the artist, Kim Mok, displays more than twenty watercolor works, which record some of the scenes she saw while traveling. The works also depict some old streets and narrow alleys in Macau and show her feelings for those old buildings that have disappeared. Last year, she chose to return to the city where she lived, Brighton, and hold her first solo exhibition. Her purpose is to take Brighton as a starting point for her art exhibition. This time, she wants to continue this exhibition in Macau. In addition, to show the public scenes that she recorded during her travel, she also hopes to take this opportunity to promote watercolor art and let more people get to know her and her works.
Tired of an immutable life? Hate that you always go the same way and make the same mistakes? A trip away challenges your own habits and opens up your perspective and flexibility in looking at things. It lets you temporarily break out of that boring routine, re-plan your own direction, and inject new energy into your future”, the exhibition’s curator explains.
Kim Mok was born and grew up in Macau. She obtained a master’s degree in Industrial Design from the University of Saint Joseph and a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts of Macao Polytechnic Institute. She has loved painting since she was a child. She has a special fondness for watercolor art and has explored in the field of watercolour for many years.
During the past decade, she participated actively in painting exhibitions organized by art organizations and also in public painting competitions in Macau, she has won various awards from these painting competitions. In order to focus on research and improve her watercolor technique, she gave up her job four years ago and went to the UK to study and travel to broaden her horizons. During her studies, she often went to art galleries to practice painting with local artists and exchange painting techniques. She also traveled extensively to various European countries to learn about the cultural history and customs of people in different countries, in order to combine the bits and pieces of the journey into a personal exhibition.
