Body of work

I was so busy for my final year project in RMIT Fine Art Bachelor program lately. Finally, all works for this year have been done, and i’ll be more active here from now on: ) Here, I want to share my art project, which is about ‘Body’ & ‘Object’. Below is the photo of me with my works setting up for the final assesement. I’m always interested in the relationship between object and human. In this research project, I try to combine the elements of different objects of pop culture with human body parts or organs in my paintings, to create a conversation between ‘human’ and ‘objects’, which I want to reflect the impartible...

MARS x OH MY! Flea Market

I always like walking around in flea market to explore unique vintage treasure while traveling. There’s not much flea market in HK, luckily I bump into one in Shek Kip Mei last few weeks. My friend,  designer of MARS (http://www.facebook.com/xxMARS) sold her vintage fashion which she found from different countries in JCCAC flea market. There are many nice vintage style dresses, skirts and bags! and the price are unbelievable! Happy Shopping ^^ Love the pattern of the dress and it’s only cost $90!? The colors of this skirt just fit the autumn style : ) MARS, can you arrange more this kind of flea market in the future?

Silkscreen Printing Workshop

Silkscreen Printing即是絲網印刷,是現時印衫普遍採用的技術。絲印屬直接印刷,以漏印方式進行印刷,利用絲網網版的孔目粗細,將顏料直接印於衫的表面。最有名用Silkscreen技術來做藝術品,應該要數Andy Warhol了。 Warhol其中最為人熟悉的Marilyn Monroe silkscreen prints,相信大家都一定會有印象。 要做絲印,首先要準備好原圖,並將原圖晒在網版上。今天晚上我就晒了兩個Silkscreen網板, 準備用來做絲網印刷。 要晒網,先要將感光劑平均地塗在網版上。這個步驟看似容易,但原來比想像中困難。幾經失敗,終於塗好。 待感光劑乾透,就可以將準備好的原圖放在網版上進行晒網。 跟住就可以將網版放入紫外光晒版燈晒網。 終於,順利將我兩個illustrations晒好在網版上了! 期待下星期...
