History & Story
Local artist Cheng Chin Man has been working on a series of “Embryo” paintings since 2012, which aimed to express abstract values in life through visual imageries, and to let audience to rethink the meaning of life. The image of embryo is employed as a carrier to symbolise fate, consciousness and perception of human, which are influential in our values and life choices. It is also the original form of each person before one is born, but it does not only symbolise the past, but also the present and the future.
Western painting and reference to artistic elements such as manga and ukiyo-e are the basis of the series. The vicissitudes of life, different roles, images, and fairy tales are the sources of inspiration.
In the painting "Plans/ Accidents", Adam ate the forbidden fruit that Eve gave him. Was it an accident? Whose plan is it?
