WONG Man Kit, Jake
黃文杰

WONG Man Kit, Jake makes abstract paintings to record or express the emotions as a human being in a specific moment, the unspeakable or indescribable feelings or emotions and the ambiguity in-between.

From his perspective, a painting should serve a higher purpose in human emotion. He tries to arouse emotions among the audience. 'The reason why we are human is because we are born with the ability to feel or sense not only the things around ourselves but also within ourselves.'

In his paintings, he does not provide an answer but simply asks questions. The audience should interpret his artwork with their point of view, as emotions are very personal and also subjective.

黃文杰專注於繪畫創作,他以抽象手法繪畫創作,其命題大多數關於大眾所經歷或面對的境況、當刻難以言喻的感受及當中模糊的情感。

從黃文杰的角度而言,畫作應在人類情感中發揮更高的作用。他希望引起觀眾的的情感。「人之所以以為人,是因為人具有感受外在或內在的因素而引起的複雜情感。」

在黃文杰的畫作中,他往往嘗試提出一個問題,而非提供一個答案。因爲情感是非常個人和主觀的,觀者應從自己角度來詮釋其作品。

'Emotions are neither absolute nor monotonic.' WONG Man Kit, Jake uses grids with versatile colors to express those complicated and tangled emotions. Each frame is a self-examination of existence at the moment.

「情感並非絕對或者單一的。」黃文杰用簡單色塊來紀錄複雜變幻的感情,而每個方框都是對存在當下的一種自我審視。
