Biography

 

Ray Chan See-kwong received a bachelor's and a master's degree from the University of Cambridge, UK, and a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) and Master of Fine Art degree from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (co-presented with Hong Kong Art School) in 2002 and 2007, respectively. He regards himself as a ‘clay experimentalist’ who enjoys exploring the characteristics of clay from various perspectives. His eclectic works are imbued with historical, cultural and everyday elements; he is eager to challenge the status quo of ceramic art through unconventional materials and processes. Over the years, he has participated in artist-in-residence programmes in Japan, Korea and Estonia. Chan is currently a part-time lecturer at the Hong Kong Art School and Hong Kong Baptist University, a member of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) and the Chairman of the Contemporary Ceramic Society (H.K.). His artworks are in the collections of the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.

陳思光先後於英國劍橋大學取得學士及碩士學位,2002年完成香港藝術學院與澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學合辦之藝術學士課程,主修陶瓷,並於2007年取得藝術碩士學位。陳思光稱自己為一位泥土實驗家,喜歡用多角度探索陶泥的特性,滲入歷史、文化,甚至日常生活的元素,並嘗試用超越常規的方法,塑造出概念多變的藝術品,以挑戰人對陶藝創作的固有思維。他曾獲選到日本、韓國及愛沙尼亞參與藝術家駐場計劃。陳思光是現任香港藝術學院及香港浸會大學的兼職講師、International Academy of Ceramics (IAC)會員及香港當代陶藝協會會長,作品為香港文化博物館收藏。
