My search in the visual art is spirituality, intellectualism and aesthetics. I draw my inspirations from literature, classical music, stage designs, vocal art, choreographic lines in ballet and contemporary dance.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in one of the high-rise apartments in Hong Kong, which ranks as the world’s fourth in population density.  The skyward expansion in architecture and the twenty-four-seven city activities had fostered my ability to cope, a dutiful sense in community wellness, and an appreciation for higher education. The greatest of all, the self-made toys in my childhood gave birth to my imagination and association for creativity.  I came to the U.S. for college education on a work scholarship and have lived and worked in the U.S. since.

TECHNIQUE

My paintings are to explore the potential of visual elements in Spirituality, Intellectualism and Aesthetics.  My medium is acrylic paint on shaped canvases.  I work on a large flat surface.  I use graphic tape to delineate movements and forms. I prime my canvas only in selected areas as the painting progresses. I use both cotton and linen materials within one painting. I make use of the natural hues of the raw canvases as colours among other colours for the painting.  I am interested in the effects between colours. My goal is to orchestrate visual elements to respond to or to evoke human emotions.
