Sculptures form recycled objects: Marching Chickens
It has been a long time ago and there was something that was bothering me and I have been upset for a while.

I am not going to bore you about it but in
prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /Hong Kong, the vibrant positive energy encourages people to be strong, tough and fight back. When I am here, it always influences me to try to be like that. But I just became very emotional and bad tempered.
With this particular thing, there is nothing I can do about it. Time and patience is the only answer.
It suddenly came to me that as an artist, I don’t have to be rational and cheerful. All the negativity and sadness can be turned into inspirations for paintings.
By allowing myself to be indulgent and miserable, I felt at peace and a lot better already.
There is a saying I had heard and it became a very important motto to me.
‘What you resist, persists. What you accept, transforms.’
And I started a new series of work since the last time I blogged. I had done some sculptures before from recycled objects, pigs out of a milk bottle, people from beer bottles and stuff.
It was more for fun but the guys from MADEinHK thought that it was interesting. And it made me think and I have wanted to experiment with it ever since.
I am not allowed (by myself) to buy the objects except for the materials. All the objects have to be either found or stolen (in a political right way, from people that don’t care or mind, like airplanes cutlery, etc).
Anyway this is a picture of the Marching Chickens, the first one. It is made from spray bottles (I have tons of them and I feel guilty in throwing them away because of their beautiful shape), forks and take-away spoons.
