LAU Wang Tat
Contradictions such as “intimate and strange,” or “close and distant” best describe my artwork. While handling each creative medium, I like to return to being “naïve”. By allowing uncertainty and the un expected to help the artwork take shape, does this process not mirror how we manage life too? Personal memories, fragments of events and the reinterpretation of things reassembled, are starting points for me. Couple this with the unique qualities of each material, I engage in the exploration of the inner mind and my surroundings.
