Hong Drone I
Hong Drone I arises from an aerial observation of Hong Kong. It is the first part of Hong Drone series, a travel who goes from abstraction to figuration. So it can be chosen as the most abstract piece of this series.
The artist takes saturated and contaminated cities, places that have become anodyne and overcrowded over the years, and he embellishes them with vivid colors.
Color is used here as a symbol of beauty and diversity, in opposition to the functionality and consistency of today’s big cities.
The QCC Museum was founded in 1966 by the first chairman of Queensborough Department of Art and Photography, Priva B. Gross. In 1981, the Art Gallery opened in its present location – historic 1920s Oakland Building, former club house for the Oakland Country Club and the oldest building on campus. The Museum was renovated again in 2004.
Housed on the grounds of the College, the QCC Museum/CUNY reaches out to contribute to the educational and cultural vitality of the College and surrounding community. The Museum’s mission is to collect and preserve; present and interpret; educate and motivate; and stimulate new art production.
