In Visual Art, Everything Begins
with Healthy Eyes:
Dominic Lam’s Exhibition for World Eye Organization
by Dr Patrick C P Ho, Secretary for Home Affairs, Hong Kong
The orderly rhythm and changes of the world are so vivid
and dramatic that they always provide a feast of beauty to
our eyes when and where they unfold.
The four seasons, mountains and rivers, sunset, the wood,
mist, clouds, each of them is marvelous in its own way. Together
they also form an extraordinary piece of music of Nature,
which is ever-changing, lively and inspiring.
Combining science and art, Dominic Lam discovered a novel
painting medium and through his semi-abstract images, his
visions spring to life on photopaper. His works have lent
new impetus to the traditional arts.
Painting is a form of visual art, whose beauty is exclusive
to the healthy eyes. The World Eye Organization is a charitable
organization dedicated to the public education on eye protection
and to prevention and treatment of eye diseases. Only with
clear eyes can we perceive the artist’s vision as manifested
in the painting. May we experience this pleasant journey with
our eyes and soul.
Last but not least, I wish the WEO Bliss of Vision Exhibition
every success. I would also like to extend my gratitude to
Dominic Lam, an artist-cum-philanthropist, for his generosity
in donating all proceeds from the exhibition to the WEO for
ophthalmic education, prevention and treatment of eye diseases
and community service.
