Misleading landscapes

THE title, A Dreamer in a Landscape, is a misleading introduction to what is a brilliant exhibition by Victor Lai, primarily a painter of people and still life. A better title might have been, In the Mirror, for this is the subject of many of the works.

Four on the fringe of the canvas

BRIAN Crouch, the most con siderable painter in the four- person exhibition, The Fringe of the Fringe, is currently concerned with gardens.

This series of works comes after a lifetime of drawing and painting since he finished art school in the 50s, a progression that has included both abstract and figurative painting, collages and a host of drawings.

Magical spirits of sculpture

Cheung Yee Sculpture: Ancient Imagery, Modern Vision. Museum of Art. Until September 19.

Flower power blooms

VISUAL ARTS Nature's Dance. Watercolours by Carmen Lund Plum Blossoms Gallery until June 28.

CARMEN Lund is a watercolourist who handles her medium adroitly. In mostly large works, often diptyches or tryptychs, she concerns herself most memorably with evoking the floral charms of gardens in temperate zones of the Earth's surface.

Brush with tradition in Cheng's paintings

Cheng Wei-kok, Hongkong Museum of Art, until April 21 New Landscapes, Paintings of Pat Hui, Alisan Fine Arts, until April 30 IN the past two decades I have become used to recognising, at the merest glance, the paintings of Cheng Wei-kok.

Italy's finest carve a niche

ART critic Nigel Cameron believes Cecco Bonanotte's sculptures are metaphors, offering ''pictures of life's dilemmas.'' It's a tempting view, for while Bonanotte leaves faces almost expressionless, the bodies he fashions convey immense and often painful emotion.
