告白

坦白是一個藝術家最基本的元素,作畫離不開是為了表達自己的立場、內心的說話。有時候我們把自己也暪騙了,「我是怎樣的人」,和「我想成為怎樣的人」或許是兩回事,透過畫作把自己塑造的形象展示出來,未必是不好的作品,可能畫面很漂亮,可能得到很多讚賞,但對我來說那沒有意義。

這是我的首個個人展覽,是我的告白,懺悔也好,表白也好,發嘮叨也好,一切都是真實的。

為了是次展覽我也製作了一本關於夢境的繪本﹣﹣《夜記》,我沒有寫日記的習慣,卻會把每日的夢境記錄下來,為之「夜記」。這本書收錄了我一小部分的夢境實錄,赤條條地展示給大家。

夢境是最坦白的,無論你日常怎樣欺騙自己,夢境也不曾騙你。

CONFESSION

Being honest is one of the most fundamental elements of being an artist,
drawing is nothing more than expressing ourselves, our opinions and our hearts.

Sometimes we lie to ourselves,
“what kind of person I am”, and “who I want to become”
are two completely different subjects.

To fake an identity with our works;
they might not necessarily be bad works,
the visuals could be very impressive,
or even applause from everyone,
but that doesn’t mean anything to me.

This is my first solo exhibition,
it is my confession,
my repentance,
my vindication,
or even just simply moaning,
but everything is real.

For this exhibition I created an illustrated book about dreams – “Nightingale”,
I don’t have the habit of writing diary,
but I record the dreams I had every night, and hence the name Nightingale.
This book contains a small fraction of the dreams I had, showing everyone explicitly and honestly.

Dreams is the most honest thing,
no matter how you lie to yourself everyday,
but dreams had never lied to you.
