CHOW Katie

The story is the soul. The colour is the body. Chow Katie’s illustration combines the idea of storytelling with colour contrast. She likes to employ mysterious, spiritual and inspirational imagery. To Katie, colour is not only the bridge between emotion and image but also a good storyteller. She believes that a good story should have a thousand interpretations and have the power to build connections between viewers and the story itself. By telling the story in an obscured manner, there exists a large space for imagination and for the viewers to create their own stories. Katie creates work digitally to show a mixture of illustration and graphic design. Through simple and powerful composition, strong colour variation, tonal contrast, as well as the deliberate details, she probes the relationship between colour and emotion, feeling and impression, memory and image. Her goal of art making is to resonate with people who see her artwork, and ultimately inspire them to have a new way of thinking and different understanding of their own life. 周曉柔專注於插畫創作,主要以電腦繪圖和水彩為媒介,將平面設計的簡約感與傳統插畫的精細混合成自我風格。出於對文學與宗教神話的興趣,周曉柔的作品常具宗教意味的隱喻,含有象徵元素,並以戲劇性的光影和對比強烈的構圖來營造畫作的敘事感,把朦朧不清的故事藏在畫中,來探討有關生命、情感、思想與成長的議題,渴望作品能與觀者展開一場精神的對話,有所共鳴。
