SO Oi Yu

So Oi Yu treated art as a form of self-expression. She works on drawing, print-making and ceramic. Interested in lines and details of objects, she usually creates her works by observing trivial scenes or views during her daily life.

So did not have a certain direction for her art practice before she started her studies in AVA. Since the beginning her studies in university, she developed her projects in a more in-depth method and started to engage in different kinds of media by studying different courses. Through various courses, So found herself interested in photography and print-making. She started to identify her interest in sceneries from photographic practices, she began to apply them onto her prints too. Besides, she is fond of drawing sceneries, transforming photographies into her own drawings. Meanwhile, she found most of her drawings and paintings contain of greens, So enjoys drawing the details and textures from the plants.

So joined an artist in residence program at Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio, in 2018. Engaging in the exhibition “Combo” (Sapporo, 2018), she has started to develop more on her drawings and print making since then.

蘇藹襦認為藝術是表達自己的方法。她專注在繪畫,板畫和陶瓷創作。她喜歡以日常生活的小事或零碎片段作為創作靈感。
在浸大藝術系的四年時間,她逐漸建立出自己的創作方向。她發現拍攝下來的影像,即使是熟悉場景,都令她深受啟發,從而藉繪畫和板畫來重現她眼中的風景。

We all pass through different places and pathways in our daily life. The buildings, bus stops, lamp posts and even plants we meet every day, these scenes built up a sense of familiarity. For me, I think this feeling gives me a sense of “home”. I stayed in different “homes” in recent years, experiencing different scenes. Still, I remember I was taught that, “looking at the greens benefits your sight!”

我們每天都會途經過很多地方和道路。每天所遇見的大廈、車站、街燈、植物等,這些景物堆砌在一起,讓我們建立了熟悉感。在我而言,這些熟悉的感覺就代表着「家」。這幾年,我都居住在不同的「家」,經歷着不同的環境,但我總記得從小便聽說過「要看多點綠色才對眼睛有益!」
