This catalogue is produced on the occasion of the exhibition 'Cerulean' at Galerie Ora-Ora, Hong Kong from 28 August - 7 September 2010.

'Galerie Ora-Ora exclusively presents the latest creations by Hong Kong artist Halley Cheng. This series of watercolour paintings take local schools and buildings of education as its subject. They convey the artist’s nostalgia towards his former school years and evoke admiration for the distinctly Hong Kong architectural style of the buildings. A Chinese proverb goes: a pupil who surpasses his or her teacher is the intense shade of blue pigment that is derived from a paler source of the same colour. This exhibition, “Cerulean”,—the name of the pale blue colour of the sky—reminds us not only of our school days but also of the role these old and familiar buildings had once played in our lives.' (from Galerie Ora-Ora's website)
