“from Functionality to Abstraction” – Ceramic Works by Rachel Cheung

Our exhibition “from Functionality to Abstraction” illustrated Rachel’s mindset of creating her ceramic pieces, she attempts to establish the relationship between craftmanship and arts.

In the beginning, she pondered that the use of  patterns or drawings on ceramic is  ornamental, in addition, she also contemplated whether there should be other essential yet important considerations. She started by drawing a simple straight line on a plate, and then added more lines in different form and intensity, seeking a optimal presentation of lines on contemporary ceramic arts for a useable plate.

She paid special attention to something regarded as straightforward and typical, such as line forms circle, circle forms circular area, area forms 3D and abstract entity. She was greatly inspired by the formation of these entities, which is very encouraging moment to her to further reach out and explore. This is a new point of view for rediscovery of “balance”, enabling her art pieces escalated to an eclectic dimension.

“When elements are disintegrated to its basics, they can be reconstructed to form many things. After all, it depends on how the artist master them.”—- Rachel Cheung

In the course of realising the above concepts, she used clay as lines and circles, did not aim to achieve perfection, but wished to emphasize the relationship of “functional” and “abstract” and important traits of both. Through this voyage of discovery, she is reconfirmed by her own stance.

About Rachel Cheung
Rachel CHEUNG was born and is based in Hong Kong.  After graduating from the Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) programme jointly presented by the RMIT University, Australia and Hong Kong Art School in 2001, with a major in ceramics, she obtained a Master degree in Fine Arts (Glass) from the University of Sunderland and another Master degree in Fine Art from the Middlesex University in the UK.  Rachel was a winner of the ‘Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition 2001’.  In 2002, she won the ‘Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme II’ award.  She was also awarded with the Residency Programme in North Lands Creative Glass, Scotland, funded by the Gulbenkian Foundation.  Rachel was invited to participate in the International Biennale of Contemporary Ceramics 2006 in Vallauris, France; and the Setouchi Triennale 2016, Japan, Fukutake House Project.  Her artworks are collected by Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum.

Through the interplay between different materials, Rachel Cheung focuses on the exploration of “equilibrium” and “relationship” in her works.  She believes that the state of equilibrium among relationships can be interpreted from various perspectives, including physical, philosophical and spiritual ones.  Equilibrium is also in close connection with changes among relationships.  Changes give rise to subtle transformation, different forms of energy, and the formation of new relationships, which then lead to other prominent impacts.  Rachel hopes that viewers of her works can sense the tension, the harmony, the contrast, the similarity and the difference in her works, and from which there spring endless possibilities.
