Landscapes and Other Natural Occurrences

Chung H. Chak’s abstract and poetic paintings of nature showcase traditional methods and have engaged international audiences. His compositions—made with oil, acrylic, and ink—reflect his belief in sustained conversation with nature, and his mission to recreate it through sophisticated craftmanship is apparent even in his studies of plants, rivers, and hillsides. Published to coincide with his solo exhibition at the University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong, Chak can provide audiences with deeper insight into Chak’s work and his fascination with nature as a respite from the hectic disorder of urban life.
