This book serves as a follow-up of the exhibition of the same title. Building on interviews with the artists participating in the show, this book maps the recent history of painting by Hong Kong artists.

'Though often perceived as being on the wane elsewhere, painting has maintained its vigour in Hong Kong, benefitting from an environment whihc has embraced conceptual and new media art, along with other leading world cities. Form, Colour, Line's in-depth interviews with Hong Kong painters Christopher Wu, Victor Lai, Li Yau-mang, Lui Chun-kwong, Yank Wong and Francis Yu serve as an introduction to the scene's most recent developments. At the same time, it also aims to explore both the personal and the social, centring on individual works.' - from back cover.

Please note that the Archive holds also a Chinese version of this publication, and a booklet for the exhibition.
