Catalogue for Lucia Cheung’s exhibition at Hanart TZ Gallery, Hong Kong in 1992. The paintings presented in this show are landscapes done between 1989 and 1992. Chang Tsong-zung writes, ‘In the “Song Offerings” paintings she has reached a maturity hitherto unknown in her work, as though her tribulation has occasioned an essential change of quality in her art. One senses a deeper, stronger character emerging from the paintings. For many years, Lucia worked in the shadow of Yang Shanshen of the Lingnan School. Her paintings were dreamy and misty, like sweet dreams constructed upon a fragile frame. The new ink landscapes are still misty, but darker and stronger. Washes of ink saturate the landscape with the damp air so essential to vegetal life. Even the fragments of nature, such as an ordinary corner of a hill slope, promise rich greenery and shelter. A tenacious strength has replaced the previous languid dreaminess. Her new landscapes are no longer distant hideaways but dark presences of nature’s life force.’ A brief biography of the artist is provided.

本書是張雅燕於1992年在香港漢雅軒舉辦畫展的圖錄。這批山水畫創作於1989年至1992年期間。張頌仁在評論這批作品時指出:「這批作品逹到前所未有的成熟和個人風格。張雅燕生命裏的遭遇成了她藝術脫胎換骨的契機。她畫山水的變在於骨格的變。多年來她離不開嶺南楊善深先生的影子,楊先生寫生功力在她手中化為甜美迷朦的意境。甜美的迷朦帶着夢想和虛幻,霧裏看花,無法着力。這系列新的素色風景墨漬汗漫,境界依然迷朦,可是沈着而充實,在簡樸的景象裏含融了深長的意味。隨意的樹態或平風的山頭卻引人入勝,有若實景中不盡的生趣使人留連於山坡一角。若說是近年進步的筆法使然,倒不如說是出於意境真切。」本圖錄亦載有張雅燕的簡歷。
