YAU Ka Man, Esther
邱嘉敏

YAU Ka Man, Esther works with glass, jewellery making, and graphic design. She often layers different materials from 2D surfaces into 3D forms. She prefers materials with the capability of layering.

Most of YAU's inspirations come from her instant thoughts, or stories of imagination from her childhood. Sometimes, she might be satisfied by creating things that she likes. YAU would rather not define herself as an artist, but a person who prefers visual arts as a way of presenting messages. She considers her ideas as ordinary rather than artistic. She just happens to use art to tell her stories.

YAU is a normal person who creates art.

邱嘉敏最近主要以玻璃、珠寶製作和平面設計作為創作媒介。她經常將不同的材料從平面堆疊成立體形式。她喜歡使用具透明感、乾淨和有分層性質的材料。

邱嘉敏大部分的靈感來自她的瞬間構想,或者來自她童年的虛構故事。有時候,她會因為創作自己喜歡的事物而感到滿足。比起將自己定義為藝術家,邱嘉敏定義自己為一個喜歡用視覺藝術作為表達方式的人。她認為自己的想法是平凡的,而非具藝術性的。她只是碰巧使用了藝術來述說她的故事。

邱嘉敏是一個會創作的普通人。
