Inkling of the Heart

a solo exhibition of Mavis Chan

Preface 序

2014.1.7 - 1.13

Time fleets past. As I stands still in a quiet moment and looks around, I see the hourglass of time sliding from one moment to the next. Spring has hardly arrived before it vanishes like the clouds. In my heart of hearts, I am shrouded in such maze and sorrow that defies reason. While I live in this bustling city, the emotions of my life are drifting light. They dart like ballet steps between light and shadows to the music of rustling leaves in autumn breeze. The touch of pointe is real in its faintness as it circles the air.  

The path of artistic creation is a solitary one and it is understood by few. Through colors and compositions, I paint these subtle emotions onto the paper with precision. Be it the senses and feelings of living, or the delicate words that fill the days, I paint them all onto the paper. Perhaps you will find those traces of and testimony to life at an unexpected corner of the composition. 

Painting has become an integral of my life and soul. I do not know what will happen to these paintings in 100 years; I paint life with abandon out of my love for the art. With the works featured in this exhibition, I hope to share my feelings about life and painting with my audience. I am deeply grateful for the support of my teacher and acclaimed artist, Mr Cheng Tin-hok, for the success of this exhibition. He has been the anchor and torchbearer of my journey through painting. Without his guidance and inspiration, Inkling of the Heart would not have become a reality. I would also like to thank those who have offered support and encouragement for my painting, especially my friends who have helped me with organizing this exhibition.

I hope these works will leave their traces in your mind as they live in mine. 

時間總是匆匆的掠過,當我靜下來,佇立原地,環顧眼前的四周,原來時間的沙漏就在刹那與刹那之間經已流走。來如春去幾多時,去似朝雲無覓處。在我心底的最深處,總是有種淡淡的迷濛與哀愁,沒有情由的把我籠罩著。縱然處於這個煩囂的城市,生活的情感依舊是淡然的、輕飄飄的。就有如微涼的秋風伴奏著葉子在光與影之間跳起芭蕾舞來。那種腳尖在空氣中觸踫的感覺,似有還無。

創作的道路是孤獨的,並沒有多少人明瞭。透過色彩和畫面,我把這些淡淡的微妙情感都投放在畫紙上,不多不少、沒有偏差。生活上的觸覺與感受,那些細緒如絲的日常話語,我都一一把它們呈現在畫紙上。也許在畫面的某一小角落裡,你會找到生活的著跡和那一點點的存在見証。

繪畫經已成為我靈魂和生命不可或缺的一部分。我不知道這些畫在100年後會如何,但由於我很喜歡畫,於是便忘我的以畫面把生活帶出來。藉著展覽這一系列的作品,希望可以跟所有觀賞者分享我對生活和繪畫的感受。而今次展覽得以成功,我由衷感謝我最尊敬的老師,鄭天鶴老師。他是我繪畫道路上的領航員、啟蒙者。沒了老師的指導和啟發,便沒有<墨縈心跡>的出現。另外我亦十分感謝所有在繪畫道路上給予我支持與鼓勵的人。由其是在今次展覽給了我幫助的朋友。

希望各位看過展覽後,這些作品的畫面,也會在你們腦海中印上淡淡的痕跡。
