A Garden

My artwork is related to my enduring childhood memory of the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. My family went there often on outings before I turned eleven. Together we shared many joyful moments with food and laughter. My lasting impressions of the garden are the big fountain, greenery, and of course the beautiful flowers.

I visited the garden recently which made me recall the flowers there. A collection of photographs I took within the beautiful garden are presented through layering into paintings. I enjoy painting these flowers and leaves from the garden in a peaceful way.

In this project, a set of white flower paintings expresses a tranquil purity of feeling, while being exhibited in an elegant and beautiful manner.
I wish to enable viewers to travel around the garden visually through my artworks.

花園

我的作品起源於兒時常與家人遊玩的地方—香港動植物公園。在我的印象中,公園裏有大噴泉、無數的植物和美麗的花朵。

我以公園裏不同的花奔作為主體,以純白的色調畫出平和與純淨的感覺,帶出一種清雅的調子,與觀眾一同遊走在這花園中。
