POON Yuen Ming

Poon Yuen Ming (Alice) is a narrative illustrator. She studies graphic art, illustration, book design and contemporary jewellery. She is also a cyberspace writer. She often tells stories through her artworks. Alice mixes both verbal text and images to tell stories within her work. She observes there should be a connection between non-visual images and visual images, which can give multiplication to a theme just like the importance of an artist statement to an artwork. In ‘Liberculation’, the red verbal text brings a strong impact to the viewer and expresses the emotions of the wearer. In ‘When I am killing myself’, paint covers out most of the book pages and creates a conflict between text and image.

潘婉明是一位插畫家,曾修讀平面設計、插畫、珠寶設計等課程。她喜歡透過作品來敍述故事。在她的作品裡,文章和圖案會交錯在一起,從而產生出充滿故事性的藝術品。她認為文字與圖像需要緊密的聯繫,才能為作品帶來更好的呈現,正如每件作品都需要一份藝術家自述一樣。
