Artist Statement

Living in a country that practices ‘Kleptocracy’ as opposed to democracy, the people are nothing but collateral damage to the corruptor. The oppression faced by the people puts them under a lot of pressure especially when democracy is yet to be met, justice is yet to be upheld and freedom is nowhere to be achieved. However, the artist wishes that the people will keep their hopes up, never give up on their dreams and keep believing because that ‘someday’ might arrive sooner than they expected.

Throughout the series of portraiture, the artist talks about the hopes and dreams of the people. The hardship endured by them can be metaphorically seen as ‘a sprout of dream’, wishing that it will eventually grow to become a big, strong tree.

“Dream may come through when people keep holding on to their beliefs and soon enough, the truth, freedom and democracy are within reach…”

Artist Statement

The painter portrays his image collection of Malay girl in order to convey various displays of emotion which are; inexplicable, fragile, disturbed, tempted, confused and sometime absurd. Indirectly, these feelings reflect his thoughts on the local scenarios of his country as he demonstrates his current growth throughout his body of work.        

畫家利用自己拍攝的馬來少女肖像,將種種莫名、不安、誘惑、混亂、荒謬與脆弱的情緒加以描繪,虛擬出徘徊於暗示與彰顯之間的各種意識,也間接反映了畫家成长与生活之中目前政治不稳定的国度.
