LIVES AND WORKS
My work merges a long artistic tradition of Chinese ink art with the science of folding. The three-dimensional-based paintings in this latest body of work - 'Fold', is full of sensuality and tactility. They are a spontaneous, harmonic and abstract composition borne out of destructive action and emotional expression of my subconscious mind to the current social situation in Hong Kong.
Memory has informed the concept behind this body of work. Some of my earliest childhood memories are of my father working on his revolutionary folded design for carton packaging. The discussion and art of folding became a daily expression in our lives together. Geometrical shapes are my starting point for an exploration of form and process. I employ soft edges as an expression of my desire to push the boundaries of conventional geometrical abstraction. Each of my works involves a constant dialogue with the material through the intimate feeling of my hands, to bring out the dynamism within via folding.
'Fold' is aminimalistic representation of how the act of destruction can become the reconstruction of a new shape or expression. It generates a sense of sweeping movement to capture the nature of space, movement and time.
Originated from Hong Kong as an emerging artist in multidisciplinary practices, my work has been displayed in exhibitions across the South-East Pacific, including George Paton Gallery Main Gallery, The University of Melbourne (Melbourne Australia),The Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (Hong Kong China), the Kikinda Cultural Centre (Kikinda Serbia), Rey Area Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (Melbourne, Australia). My first solo exhibition took place in Five Walls Projects Art Gallery (Melbourne, Australia) in February 2020. My works have been acquired by overseas private collectors. I received my bachelor’s degree in fine arts (Distinction), majored in Painting at Royal Melbourne Institute of TechnologyUniversity (Melbourne Australia) in 2019.
