iPRECIATION is proud to present ‘The Lark and Her Misty Cloud’, showcasing an exquisite, meditative range of artworks by the Hong Kong artist.
Hong Kong starlet Koo Mei was a 1950s songbird, well remembered for gaining status as the original singer of the theme song from the Chinese classic movie ‘Bu Liao Qing’ (Love Without End). However, the talented, introverted performing star confessed that the limelight of the performing arts was not a chosen pathway, but simply a route to make a living, when her family first moved to Hong Kong from Guangzhou. Now residing in Canada, Koo Mei’s nostalgic, dreamy landscapes are highly introspective, a reflective quality that stems from a long tradition of Chinese artists, deriving infinite inspiration and solace from China’s majestic mountain terrain and tranquil skies. Employing less traditional techniques, Koo’s magnificently loose but balanced cloud structures are created by employing a combination of traditional ink-brush technique, coupled with dabs of water sprayed from a bottle, to exude a quality of effortless, earthly union.
