CHAN Tsz Ying Tammy

Chan Tsz Ying (Tammy) uses ceramics, glass and lens media as her medium. She is currently devoted to working with ceramics and glass but she is still exploring other mediums. Both ceramic and glass are materials that need to undergo high temperature to form. For her, this is the essence of ceramic and glass: from liquid to solid; soft to hard. After their formation, both materials are hard but fragile. Chan considers this as identical to our lives. In other word, working with these mediums make her experience life from another perspective, and she sees this as a soul-searching process.

Most of Chan’s inspirations come from her personal stories. Chan observes and understands the surroundings in her own ways. Art becomes a language to her. She utilizes her artwork to visualize her emotion and interpret the world.

She holds the belief that one’s artwork should affect oneself before it has the ability to influence others. Not everyone will understand the artwork in the process, but Chan will insist on her own beliefs. She believes that art is something that performs oneself, admits oneself, realises oneself and liberates one’s soul. Art is not about pleasing others but about serving one’s own self.

Tammy Chan is a Hong Kong artist. She mainly focuses on ceramics and glass medium.

陳芷盈,以陶瓷,玻璃及攝影作為創作媒介。

陶瓷與玻璃都需要經歷高溫成形:從流質到固體,化軟為硬,成形後堅硬而脆弱。這些創作媒介則使她反思自我與生活。

陳芷盈大多數靈感來自於個人故事。她透過觀察周圍的環境,令藝術成為她的語言,利用作品來具象化她對世界的詮釋。她堅信作品應先要改變自己,才會擁有影響他人的能力。

藝術是表現自己、承認自己、認識自己、與自己的靈魂對話的方法——並不是為了取悅別人,而是為了療癒自己。
