KWOK Wai Ming practises illustration, photography, interactive media and recently, graphic design to show the meaning of life and to express feelings.

KWOK's artworks are inspired by the scenes of everyday life. She explores different relationships between daily life and art. She also records the feelings and creative styles that are generated by different events in different moments as she thinks each of us have different feelings at different events. Her artworks also demonstrate her feelings and thoughts related to the concept of life in different periods of time. She believes that the human life is transitory while art is immortal, which can help prove the existence of humans. KWOK loves expressing her opinions through illustrations, which is the creative media that she is most interested in. By showing simple pictures, she hopes that they can resonate with the audience.

郭慧明主要以插畫、攝影、互動媒體和平面設計去表達生命的意義和記錄她的感受。

她的作品受到日常生活的場景啟發。她探索日常生活與藝術之間的不同關係,希望能記錄自己在不同時期所經歷的感受和創作風格。她認為每個人在不同時期都會有不同的看法,所以她的作品亦展示了不同時期的她對於生命的想法和感受。她認為人的生命很短暫,但藝術是不朽的,亦是其中一種方式證明自己曾經生存。她喜歡以插畫去抒發己見,插畫也是她最感興趣的創作方法。她希望能用清晰簡潔的圖像引起觀眾的共鳴。

HELP
2018

Screen print

16 × 12.6 cm

The word 'HE', which refers to the boy relaxing in the ocean, is cleverly designed to disguise the word 'HELP'. It implies that we often hide our true feelings and do not share them with other people. Despite looking calm and peaceful during tough times, deep down, we are deeply stressed. There may be a huge discrepancy between others' thoughts and our true thoughts. They may think you are constantly happy and optimistic while in truth, you may be under huge pressure.
