Hou Chung-Ying sees the hand as the extension of the body, a bridge that joins our inner self to the world. His hand paintings reveal his borderline obsession with recreating this body part figuratively. Each print and crack on the palm can’t be missed. The hands in his paintings take on different forms–an iceberg, an island, a tunnel, a crevice, showing man’s interaction with his world.
