Project Description

Sh | 殊

Description:

“Sh”, the final-year project of design graduate Ip Wing Kit speaks for the introverts, who need time to be alone and prefer listening to talking. To get to understand the introverts, it takes much time and enough space.

Creatively making use of the blue pigments, Kit captures the state of momentary colour changes and transfers these transient moments into prints on transparent materials to convey the internal thoughts of introverts.

Rolland Cheung is a young artist born in the 90s, he set up his own brand “Agape” that has a focus on resin home products. He paints the abstract landscape with resin, waste wood and colours. “Sometimes there is already a clear composition with colours in my creative process, I just outline what is in my mind then; other times I go with my intuition to feel and record the state of mind at the moment. Perhaps different methods do give rise to the diversity of patterns.”

The「DesignXcel」team needs to meet and talk with both the student and the collaborator to discover something they have in common:

their works are sharp, and give audience the room for imagination, as if a good friend who listens and offers advices as well. Collaboration is an art of human interaction, it takes time for people to mix and know each other. What put Kit and Rolland together for collaboration are actually their own personalities: they are both introverts and creative, while also enjoy time of their own.

Their collaborative work is made up of 10 pieces of resin paintings placed in a row. Each painting depicts human silhouettes of different materials against patterns of passing clouds and flowing water. If viewed from the front, one sees the lively silhouettes of a crowd; but a closer look at each painting will reveal only one person. The art is an expression for the introverts, while they like to stick with other people, they enjoy solitude and their own time and space even more.

設計畢業生葉榮杰的作品《殊》為性格內向的人發聲,他們需要獨處的時間,喜歡聽多於說。認識內向者的過程中,以充份時間細心了解,給予他們足夠空間都是不可或缺的。

在創作方面,葉同學的畢業作運用流動的藍色顏料,截取變化瞬間的狀態,再印於透明物料上,傳達內向者的心底世界與思維。

90後的年輕藝術家張匯希,成立自家品牌Agape,以樹脂家品為主打。

他以樹脂、廢棄木材加上顏料創作,繪畫出抽象的山水畫。「在創作過程中,有時候腦袋已有明確的構圖和顏色,把心中所想確實地刻畫出來;有時候只憑直覺,記錄低當下所感受到的意境。也許正是不同的方式,孕育出圖案的多樣性。」

《設計列陣》團隊需要與學生和協作夥伴會面,在傾談之間發現兩位的共通點,創作的作品耀眼,並同時給予觀眾空間思考,像是懂得聆聽和給予意見的好朋友。協作包含了人的因素,需要方時間去了解磨合。是次合作計劃是因為大家的性格促成,兩位都是內向型性格,喜歡創作,同時享受一個人的空間。

今次合作的展品由一連十件樹脂畫前後排列組成,每件作品包含了行雲流水的圖案和不同物料組成的人形剪影。由正面看,有一群人的剪影,十分熱鬧。走近觀看,每件作品其實只有一個人,表達出內向型人格喜歡一群人一起外,更加享受一個人獨處,一個人的時光和空間。
