I don’t like darkness, but I like the light shining out of darkness. I am always captured by it when I walk on the road at night. Stopping by the roadside, I am amazed and fascinated.
This series of work includes a video and a photograph. I want to bring out the static and moving form of light. The work is taken with under-exposure and a filter so as to exclude all the reflections of light. Only the light sources are being shown in order to re-present the illusive structure of light at night, the lightscape.
The shining twinkle light on the dark background brought me to Eugene H. Peterson’s translation on Revelation 21:11, “The City shimmered like a precious gem, light filled, pulsing light.”
Yuet Mei Lo was born in Hong Kong. She focused on music in her early academic studies. She has started taking photographs during these recent years. She enjoys very much on exploring the transcendental massage presented by fine art photography. She keeps experimenting on using portraits and staged photography to express her concepts and ideas.
In 2014, she had her first solo exhibition, ‘My Father……and I’, in The Gallery of Hong Kong Art School. She had a joint exhibition in 2015, ‘Shatin Map Project’, launched by Shatin Home Affairs Department and Lumenvisum in Shatin Government offices. And in the same year she had joint a group show, ‘Artwork Display Scheme’, by HK Youth Square. In 2016, she was invited to join the ‘Fresh Trend’ exhibition by The Hong Kong Art Network in Hong Kong City Hall.
Other than photography, Lo also practices ceramic and painting. She equips herself to use different mediums of art to expand her boundaries in making art and to prepare herself to be a curator to promote art.
