The Light I & II

The Light I & II

Ink and charcoal on acid free paper, wood

16.5 x 23.5 x 3 inch

A lone man who’s broken free from the darkness and dares to march to the beat of his heart. He doesn’t need another’s reassurance. Across the vast land in front of him is the spiritual space to think and contemplate all those thoughts in his mind. We walk this earth as lone voyagers, forsaken travellers with no destination, no purpose, no place. As he walks the lone path, we are all walking together.

The Trivial Matters

The Trivial Matters

Heaps of thoughts driven by unspoken emotions in solitude all dwelling in one landscape. Small details in the mountains came together living majesty. Perspectives distorted, large matters became small and small things turned to colossal.

Chinese character reads ‘Me’ (top) and ‘You’ (bottom). We are inside the same piece of sky despite the distance between us.

It is a drawing of a lone tree I saw during a walk at Seven Sisters chalk cliffs in United Kingdom. It stood alone in resilience against harsh coastal environment. The winds were too strong. It grew bent away from the prevailing wind direction. The bending posture reminds me of a character of grace and strength one can achieve in solitude.

The Strange Planet in Your Eyes

The Strange Planet in Your Eyes

Artist-made plaster and clay objects, cat photo, Giclée print on Hahnemühle German Etching

417 x 594 mm, edition of 5 + 1 AP

A mourning that is filled with a strange sense of humility and openness. The contour of my cat’s head is the simplest form drawn from abundant details of human emotions and displays a thoughtful piece of comfort. I imagined through her deep eyes on the other end is a beautiful landscape of solitude. It displayed a thoughtful piece of comfort. The mourning becomes the acceptance of something bigger than the sorrow but not without it.

As I begin to assemble objects, forms, layers, textures and so on with clay, I am already discovering something about dimensions and qualities of my heart in this world. My thoughts act upon the imagination in solitude and landscape manifested upon by it.

In the photo is a ‘solitary land’ features an object made by artist which is displayed together. It is a discovery inside our human psyche. The vision in the darkness extends far into the void in search of a child within.

I broke a piece of clay into two. We are broken, flawed and fragile. But by standing close together, we become a mountain. It displays a beauty in imperfection.

The three soft plastic toys in the smaller picture were comfort objects when I was a child. They symbolised the pureness in bonding and loyalty. Through the years the ocean of life batters our hearts and we become hard and flawed like these plaster columns. We are still standing not far to each other despite the distance between us.

In the exhibition one can experience a simple exercise of mindfulness - lie down, look up, appreciate the details and natural composition of the mulberry branches from a new angle. Immersing yourself in the material, to hear the inner story tells itself clearly to you. Ways of seeing from a different perspective bring us appreciation of mindful details in everyday life.

A cotton ball finds a sanctuary for my mind inside a gigantic rock. One may find solace and comfort in the space or landscape that emerges to reflect one’s inner shelf and desire.

The bandaged rock is not the one that bleeds. Injury does not belong only to the one who hold the wound. Salute to the ones who dare to bear and be there to share other's suffering.

Fleeting Moments I

Fleeting Moments I

Flower sealed in resin inside plaster

210 x 210 x 20 mm

I attend to fleeting thoughts at the edge of my consciousness. A place for myself in relations to the object. I look at it, hold it, play with it. Feel the textures on a piece of clay it comforts me as if there are no boundaries. The connection between me and the object stays on a beautiful sense of understanding.
