“If one day I die, who will come to give me a bow at the funeral? Who will cry for me?”———- Artist LEONG Iat-hong asked.
Iat-hong, being curious and always asks questions on big and small daily living matters as well as on artwork creations, surely will have many doubts on death when he is in aging process. For instance, “Will people have eyes, ears, mouths or noses after death?” or “How do you know the style of my coffin? Anyway, I cannot say anything when I am dead.” or “Will l become a Chinese zombie after death? If so, I will feel exhaused because of the non-stop hopping.”, and so on.
In the paintings of Iat-hong, all are lines. The world he is longing for in stroke after stroke, we found it as if chanting enchantments one after one and saying prayers piece after piece. All these lines help to release Iat-hong’s worries. We hope that his creations will bring blessings to those who come here, and those who have gone.
