The Ordinary Valley
Ball pen, acrylic, gouache, Chinese ink and coloured pencil on paper (a set of 4)
118 x 42 cm each; combined width: 168 cm
2018

凡人在凡谷    
不凡太孤獨    
平凡易庸俗   
尋找谷外菊   
菊說空氣毒    
萬物難脫俗    

 

Ordinary people lives in ordinary valley;
Being extraordinarily can be lonely,
Yet too ordinary it becomes vulgar.
Looking for fresh chrysanthemum,
Only for it to complain about the air,
Too polluted for her refined taste.

Facing West
Mechanical pencil, pencil, ball pen, acrylic, gouache, coloured pencil and drawing pen on watercolour paper

哪個方向最可怕        
人人答西面是也        
面朝西邊不說話         
個個都大叫怕怕        
誰說我是心情差         
只不過在追落霞  
       

 

 

Ask which direction is the most menacing,
Most agreed of facing west.
Looking without talking;
Everyone appeared worried and terrified.
It is not because of bad mood;
Just busy chasing the sunset.

Venus on the Peach Lake
Mechanical pencil, pencil, ball pen, acrylic, gouache, coloured pencil and drawing pen on watercolour paper
24.5 x 34.5 cm
2018

以為獨一無二
其實不外如是
桃上的維納斯
不過雕像而已   
       

 

 

To believe it is unique or one of a kind;
Thus only nothing more than the usual kind.
The Venus on top of the peach;
She is but a stature made of clay.

Night Swim at Hairy Fall
Mechanical pencil, pencil, ball pen, acrylic, gouache, coloured pencil and drawing pen on watercolour paper
24.5 x 34.5 cm
2018

夜深難入眠
暢游毛瀑邊
新月在眼前
笑我又失眠   
       

 

 

On a warm sleepless night;
I swim between the hairy fall.
Looking at the bright new moon;
Laughing at me for my insomnia.

Leg Forest and the Woodcutter
Mechanical pencil, pencil, ball pen, acrylic, gouache, coloured pencil and drawing pen on watercolour paper
49 x 29 cm
2018

記得當年鞋癡兔
原來早克服畏高
今日定居這小島
滿島美腿好煩惱   
       

 

 

Remember the heel-loving rabbit from the past;
For it has conquered her fear of height.
She has resided since on this small island;
Only to find worries among beautiful legs.

Let's Go to Hairy Mountain
Mechanical pencil, pencil, ball pen, acrylic, gouache, coloured pencil and drawing pen on watercolour paper
47.5 x 74 cm
2018

決心上毛山    
征服所有煩    
即使路難行 
腰骨不能彎 
翻雲覆雨間    
你大叫好棒    
朋友
是毛不是巫
別興奮叫好      

  

 

 

Determined to ascend the Hairy Mountain;
To face all the worries and troubles.
No matter how difficult its paths;
I must walk straight and be steadfast.
Amidst winds, rain and clouds;
You yelled out a loud “Great”…
My friend,
This is hairy mountain not Wushan;
Don’t get too over excited.
