我耽溺於欣賞纖細柔韌的男體,以及他們之間纏繞的旖旎氛圍,這些元素無不剝離出與現實的距離。我享受並著迷於這個距離。在這個距離裡感受作為窺探者的愉悅,把自己隱身,盡情遊覽愉悅的風景。

未到香港接受藝術訓練以前,在馬來西亞的繪畫環境,彷彿水墨即作為華人命定的歸處,標榜作為華人的優勢,亦是特徵之一。但無論是宣紙、墨與毛筆,皆非日常所接觸之物;以標榜它們作為文化歸屬,正正是最讓人感到刻板僵硬的距離關係。水墨作為我的創作媒介,它必有存在之必要,即作為現代觀看所需之價值。找尋這個價值,我認為,女性在水墨里表現她的慾望觀看或陰柔男體之重新定義,對於開啟水墨領域的繪畫語言,是有必要也有實驗之價值。

我很喜歡台灣年輕藝術家簡翊洪對於其筆下人物的描述:「(猶如)用毛筆撫拜他的身體」。反復用這種心情去精描男體上每一寸細碎空間——每一寸身體扭轉、折疊、勃起的精實肌肉;每一寸隨意披散身上的衣服皺褶;每一寸緊貼在衣服下的粉嫩肌膚。這些細密空間的互相疊加、互相襯托,都足以誘發旖旎的想像。

另一個系列則是對於開窗的想像實驗。對於開窗,流行漫畫的分格亦讓我感到萬分入迷。那些割開使畫面鏡頭轉換的白色空隙,主宰著讀者對於時間與速度的解讀差異,這是屬於個人私密且無法與他人分享的想像。水墨傳統手卷所營造連綿空間,展現對於時間速度的轉換有其奧妙的觀看方式,但我企圖以這條空白的間隙達到更大公約數的想像。

The sensitivity and discomfort on stereotype value of sex and body makes me obsess to seeing the beautiful body of young men and the interaction between them, the more affairs the more safety I gain. These elements are stripping out the distance with the reality. I enjoyed and fascinated by this distance. I’m being a pleasure snooper this distance; conceal myself to indulge in this pleasing sight.

The environment in Malaysia, it seemed as if the ink painting is as a Chinese ordained, advertised as one of the advantage of Chinese. In fact, we are lack of contact and daily experience with the medium of ink painting, such as rice paper, ink and brush. It makes mechanical relationship to new modern generation while flaunting them without transformation. Ink painting as my using medium, it will be necessary to exist, that is, as the value of the modern ways of seeing. In my opinion, this new definition and ways of seeing, has to experiment with desire watching of women or discrepancies definition of anima body in ink painting.

I am very fond of the description Taiwanese young artist Yi-Hong Jian: “…as worship his body with every brush”.  Portraying every inch of scattered spaces– every fine lines of body twisting, folding, erection of lean muscle; every tumbling folds of dripping clothes; every faintly skin under translucent clothes. The overlaid and foil of these small pieces, generate sufficient a graceful imagination.

Another series is the experimental of dividing. It is inspired by presentation of manga’s storyboard. Those cut open strips generate private and unsharable experiences of speed and temporal understanding in every reader’s mind. I admit that the traditional scrolls create a subtle ways of seeing by its continuous space and time in one single painting. But I attempt to explore more imagination space by the blank strip.
