  • 創作理念:用傳統技法,以當代方式,呈現所思所感。

創作背景:

香港是個中西文化交融及多元的城市。

我在這裡出生及成長,一直受到中西文化的影響。

我喜歡張愛玲在傾城之戀裡寫:『...在這不可理喻的世界裡,誰知道什麼是因、什麼是果,誰知道呢 .......』。

又喜歡貝克特的等待果陀裡的『等』。

我喜歡任白戲寶裡的文字優美,又喜歡 Verdi 歌劇裡的音樂,表演的華麗。

我喜歡傳統中國繪畫中所表達的山水、花鳥、人物,與現實的落差,又喜歡西方抽象畫中的空間及虛實。

我喜歡厚重的筆墨功夫,又喜歡通透的水彩。

我喜歡墨有五彩;又喜歡 Fifty Shades of Grey。

我喜歡任性,更愛任性地創作。

Creative concept
To keep traditional craftsmanship alive by contemporary means, and make you feel like Alice in Wonderland.

Creative background

Hong Kong is a city where Chinese and Western cultures blend and are diverse. I was born and raised here, and has always been influenced by Chinese and Western cultures.

I like Eileen Chang‘s writing [...in this unreasonable world, what is the cause, what is the effect, who knows....]; I like the word [wait] in Beckett's Waiting for Godot. I like the words in Cantonese xiqu masters Ren Bai's play as beautiful treasure; I also like the music in Verdi's operas and the gorgeous performances. I like the landscapes, flowers, birds, characters, and the gap between spatiality and reality expressed in traditional Chinese paintings; I also like the ambiguity in Western abstract paintings. I like traditional pen and ink skills; I like transparent watercolor. I like five shades of black ink; I like Fifty Shades of Grey. I like to be capricious, and I love to create capriciously.
