黃堅 Caine Wong
The world is not perfect. It is not a beautiful place as depicted in the mainstream media narrative, but a mixture of bloody history. Life is hard and human nature is dark. Nevertheless, many people choose to live in lies and force themselves to believe the world is a good place because only then they can have the motivation to continue to live. They indulge themselves in mass entertainment, trying to numb their mind and be detached from all negativity. I hope my works can make the audience confront the fact that the nature of man is evil and the world we are living is dreadful and full of problems.
My works were influenced by the prints of Albrecht Dürer, master of the German Renaissance. “Nightmare” is a series of pen-and-ink drawing created with the technique of cross-hatching. This series was produced during the low point of my life. I drew the images I saw in my nightmares. These works constantly remind me of why and how I experience inner conflicts. I hope that my works strike a chord with those who share the same struggle in life. I hope these works can help audiences to realize that they are not alone and that all problems have solutions. I wish audiences can eventually be motivated to overcome their adversity and be relieved.
