A Mass of Ants kills an Elephant

6 January 2022 - 18 January 2022



There’s a proverb in Cantonese: “A mass of ants can kill an elephant.”  It means that when you gather tiny forces together, they can be surprisingly powerful.

Chinese seal art is the least-acknowledged medium in Chinese art, compared to literature, calligraphy and painting.  So stamping seals of ants onto calligraphy of elephants challenges this traditional perspective.

In this exhibition, ten calligraphy artists explore composition in a series of works that combine ink brush painting and Chinese seals.

The project is supported by the Jockey Club Creative Art Centre’s Professor Mayching Kao Arts Development Fund.

Taking Han culture as a blueprint and exploring present-day human values, he offers an exciting notion of contemporary seal art. Thomas’s works have been collected by corporate and individual collectors. He has been supported by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and other social organisations to host exhibitions, and he hosts workshops, talks and art demonstrations.
