NIP Hau Yin

Nip Hau Yin usually focuses on drawing and painting, and the media is mostly watercolor on paper. In her work, few patterns can be found, but the work shows a lot of attention to brush strokes instead. The effect created by watercolor when it meets water or salt is amazing, it can create the hard brush strokes. She thinks watercolor is a major medium to present the texture of leaves and the trunk. The brush can present the transparency and sense of space of the tree, which is her favorite subject to draw. The style of the work is related to graphic novels and influenced by Japanese comics. She seldom does abstract painting as she would like the audience to really look into a setting of the object and surmise the meaning behind content and the composition. Also, she seldom does realistic painting as the room for imagination is important for the audience.

聶孝賢專注於插畫,而水彩及電腦繪圖為主要表達媒介。作品風格受到日本及美國漫畫影響,於傳統日本漫畫上加上新元素。作品通常表現直白,令觀眾了然中心所想,又常以用大量筆觸表達畫面,相對擅長應用於繪畫樹,大自然等方面。希望通過平實的水彩、簡單的對話繼而想要探討人與人,人與大自然之間互相依賴的關係及重要性。
