ARTIST STATEMENT

The process of my art making is a way to express my personal response to the world around me with a distinct technique and style. It is a profound self-communication and a visual representation of my mind. Art allows me to rebuild a long lost sensitivity and forms a path that leads to peace and stillness as well as an appreciation of the beauty of imperfection.
The sentimental longing for a peaceful mind and a constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist informs every step of my art creation process. Coffee residue is a major medium in my art. It began as a metaphor for routine and self control and has developed into a useful tool to awaken and reconnect the senses.
Repetition, stillness, and rhythm are essential elements in my work, each painting is my yearning for harmony of order and beauty. Mechanical scoring on paper invokes a strong feeling of precision in order to achieve a compositional balance. The gesture of rubbing coffee residue and natural mineral pigments on paper using my body temperature, skin and the pressure of my fingers alone to control the tonal movement in colour is for me, an intimacy between my body, mind, paper and the medium. The sound and scent, as well as the feeling, is therapeutic, meditative and liberating.
In making this art, an increasingly large body of work is being created with the same style and methodology while evolving iteratively into a variety of different compositional concepts.

我的藝術創作過程是一種用獨特的技術和風格表達我個人對周圍世界的回應的方式。藝術可以讓我重建一種長期失去的感性,並形成一條通往和平與寧靜的道路,以及對不完美之美的欣賞。

對平靜思想及追求不可能存在的東西持續渴望,這些渴望引導我對藝術創作過程的每一步。咖啡渣是我創作的主要媒介,它開始作為常規和自我控制的隱喻,後來發展成喚醒和重新連接感官的工具。

重複,靜止和節奏是我作品中不可或缺的元素,每幅作品都是我對和諧美的渴望。紙上機械式的刮線引發了強烈的精確感,以實現組合平衡。用我身體的溫度,皮膚和手指的壓力來控制色調的運用,在紙上摩擦咖啡渣和彩色礦物,對我來說是一種身體,紙張和藝術媒介之間的親密關係。這種聲音和感覺是治療性的,沉思的和解放的。
