CHAN Sze-man, Vicky

“I love to paint, to paint huts, to write calligraphy”

Sze-man is good at outlining forms of scenes tidily and writing clear calligraphy because she always draws neat lines. In the beginning of her art learning, she loves to draw flowers in particular because she believes that colourful flowers bring her happiness. When she draws, she turns the vase or the flower pot around to observe the object from different angles and then shows all its dimensions on a piece of paper. Her unique painting style leads the audience to pay attention to some unnoticed aspects of their surroundings. After a period of art practice, she spends more time and put more efforts on what she focuses on. Two murals of two meters times five meters were crafted all on her own, from composition, to sketching and to colouring; from a scene of two or three small huts to the entire small village, in the hot weather.

Now, themes of Sze-man’s works become diversified, covering animals, tree leaves, patterns, MTR, ATV, ViuTV, people, landscapes and buildings…These inspirations come from her daily life: from television programs, newspapers and magazines, buildings on the streets, means of transportation, floor tiles to falling leaves. Once she decides to paint an object, she will indulge herself into it: taking a photo of it, doing research on internet, jotting notes, making a sketch, arranging the date for painting and preparing for the materials required. When she does painting or calligraphy, she will listen to the music and lower her head, working in silence and in a slow manner. Every piece of her work has been created in this way.

Vicky’s artworks do not only appear on paper but infiltrate into daily lives. One of her flower pieces has been used as the design of a cookie tin which was then brought to the market for sale together with the cookies. The works of Sze-man are full of bright colors and rich in images. I believe her powerful expression of her frankness and self-confidence, as well as passion for art creation can be felt by the audience through her art works.
