Art work Description:
"The Art of Pang Jiun" In the 1980s Pang Jiun came to Hong Kong from Mainland China. He taught art and held exhibitions. Later on he went to Taiwan to teach at the Taiwan National Art University. Last year Professor Pang Jiun retired. This is his first overseas exhibition since his retirement. This exhibition consists of 80 oil paintings, all of which can be viewed in this catalogue. The paintings were all painted on location. I am particularly fond of onsite paintings. In the early 1990s a Mr. Leung published an album for Wu Guanzhong. Wu wanted to give him a painting as a thank you. Mr. Leung came to consult me and I suggested that he choose a painting called "Shrubalthea". The plant in this painting grew in the courtyard of Wus old house and that was why Wu was able to use a larger sized canvas measuring 120 x 80 cm to create this onsite painting. You can imagine how rare and special this is. "Shrubalthea" later changed hands several times and at the end of last year sold in Beijing for 40 million RMB from Baoli Auction House. When an artist paints on location the work generally becomes livelier and conveys a more intense emotion. No matter whether Pan Jiun is painting a human figure, a still life or a landscape painting, he always paints on location. Face to face with the object he is going to paint he becomes very excited. When he picks up his brush it is as if he is going to fight a duel, sword in hand. Hong Kong is quite a grey city with many high rise buildings, many vertical lines and a great density. When Wu Guanzhong painted in Hong Kong he bemoaned the fact that it is a hard place to paint. Pang Jiun, however, has his own way to deal with this - by using colour. He acts like a child chasing after a toy. He happily uses his palette and brush to put all kinds of colours onto the canvas. The object doesnt seem important any more. There is a song in his heart and the colours become the notes, beautiful and bright, dropping onto the canvas, making a joyful and poignant melody. Similar to the sound of Tchaikovskys Nutcracker Suite or as if you were entering the world of Matisse, Pang eloquently conveys his feelings for Hong Kong. People have often said that Pang Jiuns paintings look like Wu Guanzhongs. That is because both of them are "children of Jiangnan". They are of two different generations, but of the same Jiangnan with their own unique experiences. Therefore we can enjoy them differently. Fong Yuk Yan
