“Love painting, love to paint butterflies, calendars and women.”
Ka-yan is lively and cheerful, loves sports, singing and dancing. For painting, her favorite themes are words from advertisement, portraits of historical figures or characters from legends as well as buddhas.
In her early period of painting, she was unable to keep the scale of her painting objects. Quite often, at the end of the painting, she would find no more space available to complete the images. Thus, many of her earlier paintings were out of proportion. After a year’s practice, she has significant improvement in applying the technique of proportion, and the faces of the portraits have become more consistent. Her paintings become more colorful because she is more skillful in both color selection and mixing.
Objects painted by her, no matter they are people, articles and things or landscapes all carry a flavor of childlike innocence. The brush strokes of her works are simple and smooth while the colors are bright and pleasant. They are so pleasing when you watch them.
Ka-yan also has another way of creation: paper-cutting. In fact, she has been doing calligraphy on paper scraps for some time. The words she writes are all about her daily living or the impressive terms she heard from the television programs. She keeps piles of these terms in her mind. She cuts them out from paper and presents them before us in rich and bright colors. What we see, in fact, is the memory of an era of Hong Kong.
