LEE Cheuk Wing

Lee Cheuk Wing (Cherry)’s artwork mainly focuses on ceramic and installation to utilise different mediums to express her feeling towards water, her favourite theme. Inspired by Tao Te Ching Chapter 8 from ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi, “So the sage: Lives within nature, Thinks within the deep, Gives within impartiality, Speaks within trust, Governs within order, Crafts within ability, Acts within opportunity. He does not contend, and none contend against him. That means The best of man is like water, Which benefits all things, and does not contend with them, Which flows in places that others disdain, Where it is in harmony with the Way.”


As Good As Water

No matter the changes brought about by wind and rain, water returns to calmness. Water is humble, adapts to environmental changes, and thus provides insights and ideals. 

無論風雨帶來何等的變化,水最終都會回復平靜。 水是謙虛的,能適應環境變化,從而啟發深思和哲理。上善若水,我們也該如此。
