MO Wing Sum, Tess
毛穎芯

MO Wing Sum, Tess creates works inspired by her personal stories and the peculiarity she encounters in life. By exploring illustration, bookmaking and studio jewellery, she allows her audience to glimpse her mind. MO experiments with different styles, materials and methods in order to imagine and visualise a world of fairy tales. She controls and constructs every detail of her works with fine precision. She sees her works as the fragments of herself and her imaginary world.

For MO, art is the medium bridging different people. She uses her work to voice out and to share her world bit by bit to the viewers. Making artwork is also a self-meditation and healing process for her. 'Emotions and experiences are my inspirations, but sometimes they can be extremely overwhelming and backfire on me. I transform them into my works to achieve inner peace with myself.'

毛穎芯的創作靈感來自和她生活中的故事和奇特偶遇。透過對插畫、書籍製作和珠寶設計的探索,她讓觀眾得以一瞥她的內心想法。毛穎芯用不同的風格、材料和方法進行實驗,來想象和可視化一個童話世界。她精確地控制和構造她作品的每一個細節。她把自己的作品看作是自我和想象世界的碎片。

對毛穎芯而言,藝術是連接不同人的媒介。她用自己的作品發聲,向觀眾一點一點地分享她的世界。她認為藝術創作也是一個冥想和療癒的過程。「情感和經歷是我的靈感來源,但有時它們會讓我不知所措,甚至適得其反。我把它們轉化融入我的作品,以獲得內心的平靜。」

Smile is a set of jewelleries that captures the signature smile of the artist. For her, smiling is
just an uncontrollable and mechanical reflex of self-protection.
The smile in this work looks cheerful, yet it is also plastic and artificial. The idea behind is to
put the artist’s smile onto different parts of her body, so as to play with abnormality and
absurdity.
