KAN Ka Wai

Kan Ka Wai is a person who likes to explore the development of thoughts, emotions, subconsciousness, sensibility and the relationship with oneself. She prefers to paint simple and get rid of complexities in a picture as much as possible. She expresses ideas with simple lines or forms using unsaturated colours. Kan intends to explore the relationship between thoughts and events around her. Most of the time, Kan enjoys reflecting on her daily life to find elements that inspire her to create such as her feelings on something or some events. She also likes to study the relationship between herself and her family members, as they are people who affect her the most. Even though family is a regularly explored theme, Kan believes that it is a multifarious topic, and repetition will not eliminate the details of each story. Understanding that her artworks might not be influential to everyone due to their personal nature, she hopes that the audience will be inspired to find out about their values and self-awareness from studying themselves. 我的創作主題常以自我為中心,通過研究我們自己來發現自身的價值和自我意識。我喜歡探索思想、情感、潛意識或自我關係,所以在很大程度上受自己的影響,我喜歡反思自己從而發現一些能刺激我創作的事情,比如我對某件事的感受。我也喜歡研究自己和家人的關係,因為他們是對我影響最大的人。談論家庭的話題是鋪天蓋地的,但我相信不同的人之間的聯繫是五花八門的,這種主題的重複永遠不會限制故事的細節。

Think

2017

“Think” (2017) is concerned with the process of thinking. I explore the relationship of thoughts and events around oneself. Then create a form for them, considering different thoughts as flowing liquids. Some deep-rooted thoughts would influence the direction of those liquids which are like a cube that stayed and blocked the space.
