CHONG Po Ching Florence

Having a connection is good for the soul, which verifies the existence of a person. Building the connection between Chong Po Ching (Florence) and her works is a record of her life. Through her artwork, she brings out one interesting point by using a simple form to let people feel the exuberant possibilities of materials. Her inspiration usually comes from nature, as she believes nature can remind us to slow down, pay attention to our surroundings and reveals the connections between self and the environment. Reviewing the previous work she created, she found that they are mostly related to the nature of their materials. She likes making numerous tests to explore the possibilities of that medium. For her, the outcome is important, but the process is often the precious treasure she gained in each of her works. Along with her growth, she has tried different media, such as wood, ceramics and sculpture. Recently, she is focusing on glass making. Glass is a fascinating media and working with it is a turning point to her.

當人類與大自然建立聯繫時,不但有助我們各種感官的發展,亦可以讓我們探索存在的意義。

莊普晴記錄她的生活,並藉此與作品建立聯繫。她的作品讓物料自然地發展出它的多樣及豐富性,甚至提出了一個另類的觀點,改變大眾對其古板的印象。

莊普晴的創作靈感通常來自大自然的物質,因為她相信大自然可以提醒我們生活放慢步伐,專注於周圍環境上的細節,揭示我們精神上與環境之間的聯繫。她喜歡以不同的測試來探索某種自然媒介本質的可塑性。

在整個學生生涯,她接觸了不同的媒介,如木頭,陶瓷和雕塑。最近,她專注於玻璃製造,而玻璃這種迷人的物質則成為了她創作的轉折點。雖然每件玻璃作品最後所呈現的效果很重要,但往往製作過程才是她在藝術成長方而最重要一環。

隨著不斷的努力,嘗試了無數次成功與失敗後,她仍然認為自己對自然媒介本質的理解還有很長的一段路。

There is always a flaw in life, and every road is made up of setbacks. People always use a certain set of thinking to run their own lives, but in the end, they can’t get out of the frame that they set for themselves.

人生總有瑕疵,每段路都需要從挫折中成長。人總是用一種定勢思維去經營自己的人生,最後卻怎麼也走不出自己為自己設置的框架。
