Opéra - Sceneries of Life by Cheng Chin Man

    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 "Sceneries of Life", it implies that God created men from just a dust on the ground. He then breathed in "the breath of life" into the man’s nostrils, who later experience birth, old age, sickness and death - life is just as fragile as bubbles.
