Ready to Hang
In this series of paintings, I remain faithful to my interest in observing human activities in the metropolitan city life and my fascination in the silhouette of the human figures.
Based mainly on photographs, sometimes I paint what’s there, and at other times I choreograph the picture. Appear to be floating liberally on the canvas, every single figure is carefully positioned. Just like composing a piece of music, with notations hanging across the lines, creating enchanting melodies, conversing with the spectators.
I want viewers to appreciate the paintings initially through the activity of looking, without interpretation. Stand afar and squint your eyes, get a feel of the picture through its colours and composition, enjoy the poetic movement of the crowds, then gradually drawn to the details of the figures.
