Virginia Lo is a contemporary artist born and based in Hong Kong. Lo's practice explores her emotional reaction to place, reflecting on the streets and sites that she witnesses on a daily basis. This place, Hong Kong, which she has called home for her entire life, has become strong yet familiar at once. Having began her artistic training in traditional Chinese painting with masters such as Mr. Leung Ba Yue, Lo’s current practice is heavily informed by Chinese aesthetic theories. Her recent body of work explores concepts of place memory through the lens of cultural and social preservation.
