PUN Cheuk Wai

Pun Cheuk Wai’s works focus on the exploration of life and self-treatment through print media, mainly illustration. Her works are based on observation and thoughts stimulated by daily life, eventually transforming reality to her own imagination. Pun puts into illustrations her own imagination inspired by daily living, experiences, music, books, or even strangers on the street. Through the process of internalisation, the real world is idealized in her work. Greatly influenced by the book “Genius” or “Psychotic” by Gao Ming, which shares different mental patients’ stories, she developed a new way to view the relationship between self and actual world. She believes that everything is a living organism. Pun always draws with hand drawing, to hide feelings in different metaphors, creating a kind of harmony in uncertainty, and hope viewers can feel a sense of healing.

對自我生命的探索是潘卓慧常用的命題,靈感來自於對日常生活的觀感和想法。通過內在的修補,展現她對現實中的想像,把她真正的世界於插畫中宣告。她深受高銘的《瘋子的世界》一書所啟發,令她重新看待自身和世界的關係,也深信萬物皆有生命。她一貫用人手一筆一筆地作畫,把感受藏在不同的隱喻物件中,營造一種不確性中的和諧,希望觀者能感受一絲的療癒。
