AN ALTERNATIVE ANTIQUITY - Wilson SHIEH Ka-ho 石家豪

 

Wilson SHIEH, a painter being trained with Chinese fine-brush (gongbi) technique, works on various media ranging from Chinese ink painting on silk, acrylic on canvas to paper cutout collage. He focuses on human bodies as major theme for narration. Transforming figuration by means of tailor-made costumes, the identity of modern people is always in query in his art world.

 

石家豪,以中國工筆技法為繪畫基礎,再發展出素描、油畫及拼貼等形式。他以人體為敍事的母題,透過度身訂製的諸般服裝,向當代人世的身份議題作出種種質詢。

 

Shieh went to prestigious King's College. He abandoned an architecture degree at the Chinese University of Hong Kong before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts in 1994 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2001.

 

In 1997, he was winner of the painting category in the Philippe Charriol Foundation Art Competition. Shieh emerged in the 1990s with solo shows Femme Fatales: Drawings by Shieh Ka Ho (Fringe 1995) and Fleshly - Chinese Fine-brush Paintings by Wilson Shieh (1998). More recent works include Chow Yun Fat Fitting Room in 2009. His work is part of public collections including those of the Heritage Museum and Museum of Art in Hong Kong, the National Gallery of the United States, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Queensland Art Gallery. He was Artist Associate of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta in 2015.
