「近物」Close Objects

大家也許對我的建築素描較為熟悉,四年前我開始嘗試畫建築以外的主題如花草樹木等並發現大自然之美是任何建築都無法取代的。後來的寫生素描除了用心尋找建築不同面向的美之外,也會多留心身邊之「物」。

這次很榮幸有機會在東方人文藝術館和大家分享我近幾年所記錄的一些身旁小物。我把展覽主題定為「近物」而非「靜物」主要是我所描繪的花草、物件都非刻意擺設來作畫。它們都是我生活周遭很不起眼的一些小東西如:在巴剎買來的玉米、海邊撿來的竹根、路旁的枯樹等。

近我們之物,你只要用心觀察就會發現美無所不在。

This is my second solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur after the first one in 2012. I feel very honoured to be invited by Oriental Art and Cultural Center to showcase my recent “non-architecture” sketches bearing the theme Close Objects – which are common objects or small things in my surroundings. I started this series with some botanic / plant sketches four years ago and realised that the beauty of nature is incomparable with any man-made buildings.

I thus themed it “Close Objects” than “still life” as the objects I have depicted are not deliberately designed for painting. They are the little things common to me such as: corns bought from the market, dried bamboo roots collected from the seaside, withered trees by the roadside etc.

Beauty is everywhere near you; you just need to observe with all your heart.
