While this June marks the 20th anniversary of the transfer of Hong Kong sovereignty from the UK to mainland China, emigration in advance of this transfer was already well underway, with many former residents having moved to cities like Vancouver, fearful of a government said to be indisposed to capitalism. As it turned out, things remained more or less business as usual, with Vancouver’s art scene among the beneficiaries.

Four artists who came to Vancouver from Hong Kong between the1960s and the 1980s are David Lam, Paul Chui, Carrie Koo and Josh Hon, all whom are the focus of an exhibition that explores the early stages of modern landscape and abstract painting in the years leading up to their departure.

Of these paintings, many are influenced by the artists’ new surroundings. In David Lam’s watercolour Canyon Park (1975) we see the influence of Cubism and montage, where the southern face of Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains overlooks what could be a northern BC lake. Carrie Koo’s expressive acrylic-on-canvas Sunset (1996), though equally placeless, is dominated by an atmospheric condition that, like J.M.W. Turner’s Rain, Steam, and Speed – The Great Western Railway (1844), belongs as much to the active mind as it does to the passive, if furtive, landscape.
