Ball pen may not be a mainstream medium for painting because of its limitations in colour and texture. But its simplicity and primitiveness appeal to local artist Reni Haymond, whose ball pen paintings encompass an array of topics including the ivory trade, ukiyo-e and a vibrant depiction of the sky. Her impressive artwork is on display at Entrance/Exit J of MTR Central Station in the latest “Art in MTR” exhibition entitled “CYCLOGY”.
“Ball pen is a highly accessible but often neglected medium for painting. I like it because it is an underdog, and its prevalence as a tool that symbolises a ‘can-do’ spirit. I think it will create resonance among Hong Kong people,” said Reni Haymond.
“Reni Haymond’s innovative works offer a new perspective to our customers who are invited to view the exhibition and pause for a moment of reflection when they travel to and from Central Station. We at the MTR Corporation strive to leverage on our network and resources to support the local art community as well as make our passengers’ journey more enjoyable,” said Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation.
“CYCLOGY” is the latest art exhibition in the “Art in MTR” programme under the Corporation’s “Community Connect” platform. “Art in MTR” provides a platform for aspiring artists, designers and talented individuals in the creative industries to showcase their works to the community. The objective of this programme is to enhance passengers’ travelling experience through easy access to different art elements including live performances, short-term art exhibitions and permanent displays of art pieces.
