Her recent works named “Shoes’ Talk” (2016) and “Unfold the Expired Knowledge” (2017). Being a story teller to show her concern with the Hong Kong City and people living in.
Drawing every day becomes Bobo’s habit. Sketching through her own brush strokes makes her feel relax and think about life. It is even more than a thousand words. Bobo had visited an exhibition named “Dream Chaser: Early Paintings of Professor Wucius Wong” two years ago. Professor Wong’s Exhibition inspired her a lot. His early works include plein air paintings in water-color and felt-pen, cartoonish drawings, checkerboard-like landscape, Klee-esque line-drawings, impressionistic harbor scenes painted with palette knives, journalistic portraits of daily life, etc. These are not solely personal expressions, but also reflections of a thoughtful artist who made sensitive observations of his surroundings. As a greenhorn studying Fine Arts in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Bobo sketches every day to record all the things around her. This is Bobo’s first solo exhibition. Each drawing is a page of her diary. She found that being a dream chaser on paper is the best way to encapsulate her aspiration for arts.
