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.

‘We all crave a moment of peace in our chaotic life, yet the truth is we are born in chaos and what we crave is impossible.’
