226



I made this painting on 26th February at a playground somewhere in K.L. The same day, a protestation “226 Anti-Rare Earth Green Meeting” was held in Kuantan. I spent the whole evening in the playground, no kids around. I purposely ignore “Green” in the drawing process, or I should say “Green” was just gone away from my sight at the moment I observed.


“A drawing of a tree shows, not a tree, but a tree-being-looked-at.” -John Berger.


My purpose of drawing is to record my viewing experience, rather than to imitate.


My drawings always come in 3 layers: black, white and colours. By adapting the formula of classical painting, I shape representation form with black lines accordingly to my collective conscious from the subject and space, and then I purified my intended images with white pigment by overlapping the previous black outline. At last, I apply an even paint onto surface, to reveal what eye sees: colors, shapes, optical phenomenon.


I mark each of my drawing stage with a time, and leaving the particular area with no following layers. It is to record my viewing track, to proposes the simultaneity of a multitude of moments.

looking at your drawing, I saw not form but object being formed.
