WONG Ka Hei

Wong Ka Hei is intensely interested in herself as a subject in her paintings and drawings. By gazing at her own unique individual and authentic existence, the conversation with herself is private, emotional and subjective. Her personal declaration of the narrative may be inaccessible but there is an inherent concreteness that provides a great resonance to everyone. Through the accumulated experience and activity in her life, sensation, emotion and recollection have eventually been merged to shape her elusive character. By facing uncertainty, she believes no one has a certain identity in this world as everything is constantly changing. She is looking for her own role and trying to depict her innermost feeling from the figures’ facial expression and the complex synthesis. Hayson’s inspiration comes from the misty memories of family conflicts within her early childhood and her youth. The distant relationship with people who around her has been playing a major part in forming her consciousness of who she is and how she defines solitude and fragility. Being isolated, stimulates her to have an intense desire for escaping and create a way out of the phenomenal world in her imagination.

黃嘉曦的作品主題圍繞於自身,透過對自身的觀察,對自我進行私密、情緒化和主觀的對話。她的個人宣言可能讓觀眾難以進入和了解,但內裡蘊藏的情緒卻能夠帶來共鳴。一連串的經歷和考驗,使黃嘉曦漸漸成為難以捉摸的人。面對不能確定的一切,她認為沒有人永遠具有某種特徵,因為一切都在不斷改變。 黃嘉曦的創作靈感來源自自身家庭衝突的朦朧印象,與家人疏遠的關係一直影響她對自我形象的建立,並透過作品中的人物表情刻劃出內心深處的感受,甚至找尋自身的定位。她試圖脫離孤獨和脆弱,並透過想像,創造出擺脫現實世界的繩索。
