'More descriptive than calligraphy and expressive than a sketch, Hong Kong artists' usage of line has gone beyond conventional applications, materials and surfaces. it is essentially a philosophical concept than mere technique. The linear dimension is the first step in the artist's creative thinking. it embodies cultural, historical and personal significance. The result is an indigenous style that transmits the innermost feelings and defines contemporary Hong Kong art.' (quote from first page of the book)

This catalogue is published in conjunction with the group exhibition under the same title held at Grotto Fine Art from September to October 2010.
