關於展覽 / About Exhibition :
“Pretty and meaningful
Plan to define how beauty can be presented before starting a task
Beautv is felt once the sense are reactivated”
Appreciation - To sketch the poses of models
Study - To impersonate the model's pose and sketch myself into the drawing
Experience - To appreciate and sketch my body in different perspectives
Realisation - To replv to the world with mv experience of 'beauty'
It pass through 4 different phase Appreciation, Study, Experience, Realisation be aware of others, then try to understand them wholeheartedly. As I review my state, thoughts and preferences, I use my sense of beauty as a way to reply to the world.
As luck would have it, I was met by an artist teacher. His colour use is daring and vibrant, his skill is magnificent, his line work is detailed and his image creations are energetic. For this reason, I took a few pastel art classes with the teacher. I learnt the teacher's use of colours and ways of creating brushstrokes, whilst he shared his creating process with me.
Through the learning process, I found my own sense of colour. I reviewed my personality traits, energy and preferences, merged the teachings from my past til present, and came to conclusion with my own definition of beauty. The reflection of beauty within my new artworks: Bold and groundbreaking colour use and more distinctive themes that expresses my own thoughts.
Not only can art be learnt using this technique, so can life's lessons. For example, I hope to better my time management, I will ask for advice from capable friends or read books that discuss the topic. I will them try out their suggestions, and adjust those practices according to my own life situation. It will then become a habit and a wisdom of mine. This is also a reflection of beauty.

Hong Kong artist Ling Ng graduated in a design school, and am now studying Expressive Arts Therapy. Since 2016, she had held ten different exhibitions in coffee shops and exhibition centres. She was also invited to create commercial murals and to speak about art at secondary schools and universities. Ling enjoys drawing and sketching. As a child, she have had strabismus surgery, but her eye sight had not recovered fully. It affects her capacity to define distance and also her drawing abilities. Not long after, her teacher initiated her to practice with the continuous line drawing technique, which helped her define aesthetics in a new light. She learnt to focus on the ‘spirit’ of an object rather than just the appearance. This is when she became more appreciative of her own art. A pair of distinctive eyes allowed her to see the world exceptionally. In other people’s view, her lack of eye sight is a disability, but for Ling, it is her exceptional strength.
