Oh Chai Hoo: The wind and the waves, the witnessing of silent conversations between stones and rocks, and the anticipation of sprouting seeds are the inspiration to my creations this time around.
Together with new methods such as using the slip trailer (a bulbous or bottle-like device in ceramics used to squeeze out slip or glaze in a line onto clay) instead of a traditional brush, using black pigment instead of ink, and using black linen for scroll mounting, I hope to present to you traditional ink painting in a different way.
Chua Chon Hee: A glimpse of the sunset, a piece of fallen leaf, a small flower and dewdrops after rain inspired me greatly for this series. I wanted to present something real in a different format with new materials. Hence I made use of the textures and shapes of fallen leaves and pea pods for my prints, and gold and silver rice paper to bring out the distinguished nature of Mother Earth.
I hope that through this small but focused collection of images, I can bring to you the beauty of moments in time.
