About Stephanie Ho

 
 
  • Biography

    In my latest series of paintings, Human Planet, I remain faithful to my interest in observing human activities in the metropolitan city life and my fascination in the silhouette of the human figures.

    Based mainly on photographs, sometimes I paint what’s there, and at other times I choreograph the picture. Appear to be floating liberally on the canvas, every single figure is carefully positioned. Just like composing a piece of music, with notations hanging across the lines, creating enchanting melodies, conversing with the spectators.

    I want viewers to appreciate the paintings initially through the activity of looking, without interpretation. Stand afar and squint your eyes, get a feel of the picture through its colours and composition, enjoy the poetic movement of the crowds, then gradually drawn to the details of the figures.

    Some walking aimlessly on their own, some standing in deep thoughts; Some being dragged along in the flow, some taking a break to ponder; Some waiting for their long lost friends, some sharing a moment with their long found love…

    There are so much details you could look at them forever and never quite see everything. With your eyes slowly following the diminishing perspectives, suddenly comes the smell of oil paint… before you realize, your nose will be touching the canvas.
