Indefinite Irrelevance – A Brief Introduction
Throughout time, I had been relentlessly drawing, painting and researching. In fact, my interest in art had not subsided through time.
From the beginning, my artistic style, contents and watercolour skills have been constantly evolving – from traditional watercolour presentation to semi-abstract. To me, such evolution possess an immense meaning but it does not represent the end of my previous ‘Accumulate’ series. In fact, it is a continuity of my previous series’ main theme but in an evolved, improved version.
By giving it a breath of new life and meaning, I present to all my fellow audience my latest series entitled ‘Indefinite Irrelevance’. This new series is a continuation of my ‘Accumulate’ series, where the current and previous one have close connection in terms of content, methodology, presentation, storytelling which I truly believe that my audience could understand and relate to. From the name ‘Indefinite Irrelevance’ itself, I understand and comprehend on how some matters in our life are interrelated or somehow connected to each other. On a certain level, it is not only intimately connected and bonded to me, but also is an artistic creation of my own, which contain my spirit of creativity, artistic language and substance. From ‘Accumulate’ series to ‘Indefinite Irrelevance’, my art creation is constantly changing from time to time. However, no matter how much changes it goes through – colour, composition, conditions and circumstances, all these are not important. This is due to the fact that I truly understand that my passion and burning desire towards art will always remain unchanged. In addition, I always enjoy every creative process as it allows me to learn about my mistakes and face challenges courageously which will inadvertently create the beauty and charm of my artworks. The entire creative process and journey act as a driving force to motivate and encourage me to continue striving tirelessly to improve myself, skills and to move forward to the next level.
’Indefinite Irrelevance’ is a series where I pursue my insistence on making a change and creating something novel derived from my previous series. In my latest series, I have strengthen the elements of design, thus making my works stood out with a fresh new look yet maintaining the spirit and embodiment of my previous works.
Personally, I wish to change the perception and impression of the public towards sea vessels, especially boats. Through my artworks, I have diligently recreated, remodelled, rearranged and rebuilt a fresh new modern feel and rendition on these amazing sea vessels. From my depictions, I hope to awe my fellow audience from a different and contemporary aspect.
In this series, I have reduce the elements of texture but increase the elements of overlapping and form composition. By dealing with the combination of spaces and leaving white areas, I want my works to imply the philosophy of Chinese paintings. Besides that, I have also embedded the spirit of imagination, unimpeded and free strokes on my artworks to exhibit a sense of boldness and grandeur.
