East and West

"Growing up in a dual culture makes you look at the world differently. There is never one way of seeing things"

Common Ground is the brainchild of Grace Lodge and Mich Maroney two visual artists with roots in Hong Kong, Macau and China. Grace Lodge has Chinese-British parentage and was born and brought up in Surrey, England. Mich Maroney's background is Eurasian-British and she was born and spent her formative years in Hong Kong.

They say 'Culture is formed of diverse, subtle and "foreign" elements that are silently subsumed into the prevailing whole. Without being an obvious or literal part of the subject matter, memories and reflections can be an intrinsic part of how a work is created. Our mixed heritage informs and influences our work and is something we are keen to explore and promote'.

 

共同點



什麼是"共同點"

"
共同點" Grace LodgeMich Maroney两位畫家的創作意念。她們有相近的家庭背景,她們的根源自中國,香港和澳門。

在未來的日子裡,
Grace Mich將會一起構思實踐不同的藝術文化項目,請讀下文。



誰是"共同點"

我們都是畫家和版畫創作者。

Grace是中英混血兒,在英國南部Surrey出生及長大。

Mich具有歐亞和英國血统,在香港出生及渡過她早期的童年。

我們在倫敦
Deptford的藝術工作室相識,在那裡從事藝術創作多年。


"共同點" 成立背後的理念

生長于一個双重文化的環境裡,令我們對世界事物有多重的看法及觀點。我們家庭裡的多種文化背境,為我們的創作提供生命動力,也是我們希望進一步探索及推廣的對象。

文化是由多種不同的元素
组成,除了本地的元素外,外來的元素亦慢慢地被纳入主體。這過程深深吸引及打動我們,亦貫穿了我們的創作。 回憶和回想漸漸成為了我們藝術創作深層的,不可分割的一部分。

通過這個網站,我們希望和您分享這些意念,加深了解。


"共同點" 駐訪計劃

我們第一個項目將會是駐訪香港兆基創意書院,推廣文化及教育交流活動。
