define art @ SCAD

I don’t usually go to many events on weekdays since I started working in Hung Hom but I was stoked to see that there was an art exhibition at SCAD which is close to home.

I really wanted to go support a friend, Shann who I went to high school with (we were a couple of years apart) and she was in her last 2 years when I had decided to take art for my final years.

My art teacher at the time had scheduled a preview of the year 12 and 13’s sketch books for our class, to show us what level of art and work was required for higher level IB art students.

There were roughly 30 sketch books all closed all in pairs placed on the large wooden desks we had in Shatin College’s art dept rooms and we were told to spend about 30 minutes to walk around and look at the sketch books of the above year groups. We were asked to pay attention to the reviews, the concept pages, and the doodles that we would also have to do to later inspire our exam pieces.

There is something really pleasurable about a sketch book that is so full the binding is almost worn out with bits of paper, masking tape and hardened oil paint protruding out of various pages that make it so exciting to flip through. To this day I will always remember Shann’s.  Good lord she is talented.

Back to the gallery: I really loved the photography pieces, especially Brian Jim’s black and white pieces as well as ‘Portrait’ by Lorenza Brancadoro, but my favourite has to be ‘Vessels and Wires’ by Shann.

** I didn’t really want to tamper with the brightness of the images because I wanted the colours to be as true as possible
