Art belief

A couple of years ago, I have said that human beings often try to integrate art into life. On the contrary, we rarely try to make life more artistic. This notion remains my mind. If art and life originally come from a complete whole, these two words create irreparable distance in the middle. We tend to look down possibilities of life and extract artistic elements from it presenting in separate situations. Such methodologies lead my art creation to be made based on real experiences like applying my real life to experiment different ways of living. It somehow helps search for values of life and extend sentiments of beings in current bustling society. Then I discover. There is no object which can stay eternal. Every object changes at every moment. While consciousness is triggered, it determines how states of objects can retain.

Have a try to look at the world with an open mind! There is nothing existing alone. What is the sake of contemporary art in nowadays markets and norms? Along with continuity of intensified globalization and capitalism, modern lifestyles reflect more contradiction of values. I name it poisonous aesthetics embracing all of my emotions and desires, as well as blending with situations and fate of Hong Kong. Believe in skepticism; skeptical about beliefs. Believe in beliefs; skeptical about skepticism.

I enjoy feelings of existence, and breath, much more than work. If you are willing to see in this light, then my creation is about life.
