About M Gallery Residency: Yuk Sum Lai - Blank Spaces

Blank space in a drawing is always neglected.
Blank space does not mean blanked.
Blank space is kind of emptiness as presented in Buddhist.
Blank space is...

I am Yuk Sum LAI from Hong Kong. This is the first exhibition of my paintings. I graduated in Master in Architecture from Mackintosh School of Architecture, GSA. I like to take my inspiration from various fields, e.g art, philosophy and psychology, with a special focus on humanity and phenomenology.

I use the abstract expression in painting, illustration and photography because I enjoy the way it forms into different ideas and images in the minds of the spectators. In my final thesis design, I researched Japanese Zen, which lead me to think about the role of “absence/blanked’ in drawing and photography. People always focus on the “content” part, which is the coloured part, but ignore the absence area/ the backgrounds.

In fact, absence area helps ease the viewer’s mind and let them focus. I would like to showcase the role that the various blanked areas are playing in the paintings.

The exhibition will be available to view within the venue's opening hours, by an appointment through info@thelanguagehub.co.uk . There will also be a closing event on Sunday the 16th Feb.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for M Gallery Residency: Yuk Sum Lai - Blank Spaces are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
