Artist Statement

(Metaphorical) A bird startled by a mere twang of a bowstring. (Literal) Having once suffered a bad fright, to startle at something small

Public social issues that are currently happening in Malaysia today inform the narrative of the series
City Tales. The main inspiration to develop this body of work comes after viewing the Chronicles of Crime (2006) series by Malaysian artist Wong Hoy Cheong, but I attempt to focus on the everyday public concerns such as the bothersome traffic jam issue, the recurring haze problem and public protests such as the Bersih rally.
I am constantly trying to enrich my social realist painting practice and there is no exception when I
was developing these works. I have studied and absorbed the formality of Chinese wood engraving and Japanese ukiyo-­‐e and applied them when constructing the formal structure of these paintings. I have always admired how those Eastern traditional painters and print-­‐makers used humor to not only record social observations, but simultaneously made sarcastic comments through the visuals of the depictions of the everyday. In this body of work, I attempt to combine formal and visual elements of Chinese wood engraving and ukiyo-­‐e together with western influenced genre of art that I have been accustomed to.
I believe this combination would accentuate the uniqueness of the visuals and allude to the hybridity
of my identity as I have been actively absorbing multiple cultural sources growing up. Furthermore, have titled pieces in this series with Chinese idioms, Malay peribahasa and English phrases, to echo our complex daily experience living in a multilingual nation.

Artist Statement

Memory and reality are often have a gap, and may even be our fantasy. We will certainly miss the part of memory, and then we will imagine to add these missing areas, such as the deletion or creation does not belong to our memory fragments to get the results we want. This is the traces of memory after precipitation. Whether it is consistent with reality is not the most important, it is “a unique combination of interpretation or misunderstanding.” Through this process, we can find a different daily life, which may be in order to change the reality of cruelties life.

This creative way expresses a brief private moment and memorable memories, creating a close connection between abstract and concrete narrative notes and pure views, past and present, shaping the silence of time and space.

Run, run, run, run away from the deserted island!
Don’t stay here! You have no friend here!
It isn’t a place to settle!
Be careful of this soul-feeding monster!
It is not only roaming in your place!
Civilization is more terrible than the monster!
It’ll makes your soul to sacrifice!
Run, run, run, run away from this island!
Flee to the heaven!
