Surgical ward 1939

I like the idea of stripping away and dismemberment in this painting, it evoke the feeling of myself being nervous as every part of my body divided into independent character.

and I would like to investigate how to shows the emotion by using surrealism style.

Yayoi Kusama


The work she has produced in her works had one same patten that covering the work – endless dots. These seemingly endless repetitive dots has already became the style of Yayoi Kusama’s art and became an instant give-away that you are observing one of her pieces.

Kosai sekine film directior I think the way how he convey the idea of all the people have their own job in the society by using OCD as an example.

The repetition of his work is quite similar to my idea. The line looks very satisfy and orderly which is what I need for this project. the style of my previous work so more about abstract and free-style sculpture, so I want to try out the style of orderly and neat for this project.

Kim Noble

There are lots of people live inside Kim Noble's body. She is an artists who got Dissociative Identity Disorder.  I like how she forget the sense of space. I would like to create a small model of work base of the idea of mental disorders and lost of sense of space.

I like how he create the relationship and connection of people by using pair of goggles that restrict the visual field of the people and force an eye-to-eye exchange through a series of mirrors that distort their vision.. For Clark, the object becomes “a mere vehicle for bodily experience and exists only in relation to the body that holds (or interacts) with it.” The black and white photograph shows and give attention to viewers. Monochrome is one of the popular style in photography, exclude the colours can easily focus on the main figure and shape of the work. 2018-07-01 下午11.55.03.png.2

Zao Wou-Ki

thereupon why I think he influenced me a lot is because he is one of the first artist who try to mix the asian tradition with European abstract art. In his early life, he influenced by Western modernism and the work of the Impressionists and Expressionists. It was after his move to Paris that his paintings began to shift towards abstraction. By 1971, however, he had returned to the brush-and-ink technique in which he was trained in China. He connected with the Chinese roots, Chinese tradition and landscape. It change the way of doing oil painting. A lot of more free movement inspired by chinese ink painting.

He has filled london’s 19th century covent garden market building with 100,000 white balloons. 

I am capable of doing drawing and painting in large-scale, but I always limit myself if the work is three-dimensional. I would like to try something that has the interaction with whole environment not only the work itself, but also create the mood by using light, sound, etc.

Zaha Hadid

Her architectural style had strong visual effect, with the concept of deconstruction, breaking the tradition of many inherent architectural logic, avant-garde with a futuristic curve design. 

In my opinion, the way how she design a building is different than other architect. Not only the outline of the building is much different than other, but also how she shows the movement of the architecture by using line, angle, even shadow is one of her tool.

Santiago calatrava

 For the project, we are trying to combine the elements of architecture with fine art. Santiago Calatrava is a Spanish architect, sculptor and painter. He seamlessly merged architecture, art, and engineering. And also, He can design in response to unique climates by an appreciation for environmental context as illustrated by the dynamic shell of the new Innovation. Moreover, how he turn the design model into a actual object had been considered accurately.

a sound installation. Maybe like a walk on an lazy Friday afternoon. Tediousness and uncertainty on our shoulders and the sweet vagueness of our surrounding in the backpack. Hoping that later on, maybe the silence of a summer rain will surprise us. Silence defined by its absence.

The feeling of lonely, getting trapped and empty full in the environment like the first cigarette in the morning.

 Nervous Structure- Annica Cuppetelli and Cristobal Mendoza 2012

It is an interactive installation it containing hundreds of vertical and parallel lines that reflect the movement of the audiences. It creates an unusual feeling and environment that would impact on audiences. I would like to create the atmospheric work for this project.

 The nature of our looking- Gilbert and George 1970

The sound of the work is lively and even a bit comic, but when I stand in front of the work, watch the monochrome video, I felt lonely and silent.  I believe not all the people have the same feeling because everyone got different opinions and way of thinking. For my project, I might going to use sounds that isn't impressing the message directly and let the viewers to think about different meaning.

"The mirrors create an infinite stripe of colour and so the room becomes endless. It creates this incredibly immersive environment." said by Carsten Nicolai.

When I saw the artwork, the beats of the sounds interrupt with simple geometric colour shapes make the strong impression.

It is made using heat-sensitive liquid crystals that are placed between glass slides and inserted into projectors. And also he called it as auto-destructive art. The colour change in different temperatures. The colourful artworks not only show individual piece of artwork, not also combine as a performance and created the atmosphere. Although traditional skills and technique is important, experiment and explore the area that I am not capable is also important for me.

Jannis Kounellis

When I first saw the artwork the strong feel of irony makes me felt interested in the artist. In my opinion, I think the meaning behind an artwork is much more important than the skills and technique. In my point of view, this work presents the problem of society in urban city. In the work, you can see chairs around the suicide scene. It reflects the society sit on the sidelines and gossip behind others back.

Richard Wentworth

He is the British Minimalist and Conceptual artist. His sculptures give me the huge imaginary space for how he readymade objects that bear no relation with each other and arranging them into him own ways. This modern ways of creativity is different than traditional art. His work can build out the very strange environment, and also the photography he took is quite different than other artists. For this work, I was impressed by its visual presence and its successful combination with the surrounding architecture.

a readymade installation, consisting of her own unmade dirty bed, in which she had spent several weeks drinking, smoking, eating, sleeping and having sexual intercourse while undergoing a period of severe emotional flux. The artwork featured used condoms and blood-stained underwear. Im interested in readymade installation and I would like to try in someway. But the concept behind the readymade work is the most important part which is what I am lack of.

Mona Hatoum-  Light Sentence, 1992

She challenges the movements of surrealism and minimalism, making work which explores the conflicts of our world. Gender and race began the developing ideas in her education. In her works, she want to explore the relationship between politics and the individual through performance. I think as a fine artist, the various of style of Hatoum’s artwork encourage me to try different style of art. I like the sculpture she created with geomatic shapes an wide rage of materials.

He is an artist who interested in human form and facial expressions through out his career. And I like the way of overlap the same image to create the sense of fading in his work.

Reflection- Mona Hatoum 2013

I saw this artwork in White Cube and I suddenly got attracted by how the three layers of image create a blurring effect. I think it could be a good way to represent old memories. People remember only part of the story as the outline of the artwork.

Yuichi Ikehata

The style of Yuichi Ikehata is colourless and frigidity. The ideas of memories are not completely in your mind, so the fragmentary picture is how I create. “Unfinished, broken and poorly made objects give the viewer something to think about. He combine his work with digital for achieving more reality. The materials his used are wire, clay, paper which something with black and white. Moreover, he combines the technique of photoshop into his work which makes me want to add the new technology into my own creation. I was inspired by the ways of how Yuichi Ikehata created his hands, so I am going to make two hands that show the similarity and differences.2018-07-02 上午12.03.28.png.1

William Cheng

He is one of my favorite Art director in Hong Kong.

 In this film, Chang used red, white and blue as main color tone, representing different emotions. It brought a very strong artistic style to the film. Since then, the artistic element as part of storytelling has been established, so has been Willam Chang as an art director.

Alex Webb

Webb is a Magnum photographer who uses strong colors, light, and emotion to capture beautifully complex images. Each of his works allows the viewer to have a lot of different feelings, mysterious, complex, staggered, rich, full, colorful, wandering. Alex Webb's work is known for its complex composition, but it seems logical.

From his works, I learn how the composition effects the feeling of the work. Through a strong foreground, mid-ground, and background. The great thing about this is that it leads you (the viewer) to invite yourself into the frame. You enter the frame by looking at the things closest to you, and then you slowly make your way into the mid-ground, and then slowly out into the background. So, I will take how Alex Webb's skills into my painting in order to create a complex frame. I should take more photographs by using nature environments and observe the new things.91220C5F-6D18-422C-A434-960339A01F27.jpg

Roger Hiorns

He like to put symbol into his work to convey the human being. I think conceptual art is one of the most important thing in art because it is a way to communicate with other people. Although the title of the work is untitled, it was about experiment and processing and then gives a meaning to the work.

Also, I love how he created various of different styles of works. I think curiosity of explore different areas of art is very important as a Fine artist.

For my next step, I want to create a large-scale of installation by using object and light. 


El Lissitzky

He was an Russian artist who create major figure in both Suprematism and Constructivism. In this work, the ladder of vividly colored forms combining the space and the thin line is like the support of the whole artwork. I like how the negative space are complicated by the light color that divides these forms from the grey shape. And also, the abstract and chance form create the balance of the composition. I’m going to take the idea of Constructivism for this project.

Book: John Latham Canvas Events, 1994

My object in the museum section is a firing letter written by the principal from Saint Martin's School of Art, the recipient is an artist called John Latham which unable to teach in the school at 1967. I decided to do some research of his works and I got inspired by the structures, I think it link with both fine art and architecture. we would like to working on the fabric and playing with the shape of the canvas.

"Every copy of a physical recording is different, a real object that has its own little story, a one of a kind, personalised by the effort you put in to purchase it, each time you touch it, and the unique ritual that goes along with playing it,"

 I like how the artist editing his own album in the way that layering the videos.

The concept of the album shows that people have different feelings and different way to approach their artwork.

Psi Girls 1999

Susan Hiller

Susan Hiller was an artist who focusing on mixed-media installations and video projections. I saw her work when I visited Tate modern before, the space design are very attract me. It inspired me of sometime I should change the original colours of the objects. It might shows and change different atmospheres suddenly. However, Black is one of the important colour Hiller build a very open space to give more interspace to visitor feeling about the collections. Psi Girls is a video installation composed of five scenes from feature films. And each scenes has been enlarged, tinted with a different colours, and heavily edited by Hiller.

I saw his works once when I walked in Mayfair. I like the ways he created the installations. the balance of the work are quite interesting and puzzle. That makes me want to spent more time on it and want to make a response to it. And also, the colours he used and strong and lightness. I would like to produce a colourful outcome inspired by Franz West.

McCall describes his practice as existing in the space where cinema, sculpture and drawing overlap. He is best known for his large-scale, immersive sculptural light installations that incorporate the visitor and invite them to become active participants in the work which is what I need to present for this project.

 Gerhard richter

When I first saw Gerhard Richter's works, I had been attracted by the techniques of how he created the blurring effect and combining the photographs with oil painting. The abstract expression is what I want to achieve and develop it more, and also, I'm very interesting about the abstract and expanding style of painting. I'll develop it more by using and learn from the artist's techniques. I would like to record my dreams by  painting as the background of the artwork. The style of the painting would be abstract painting because the dream is combining be fragment of memory.

Trisha Brown

She was an American choreographer and dancer and I am interested in the combination of dancing and drawing. The dancing shows the movement on both artwork and performance. The abstract lines and shapes fellow the body by chance. The large-scale abstract drawing is one of the style I really want to focus on. Avant- garde dancers believed that dance could be divorced from music, that dances could be themeless and plotless, and that dance could also reflect the dancer’s internal rhythms.
