“The Cradle Rocks Above an Abyss”

For his first solo exhibition in the city of his birth, Canadian-Hong Kong artist Howie Tsui presented a new series of mixed-media works featuring surreal characters and absurdist scenes, in large part inspired by his nostalgia for mid-20th century Chinese novelists and late-20th century screen and television writers working primarily within the wuxia (martial arts) genre.
