Drawings and Sketches

 

Some of these works were quickly done from life.  Spontaneous  and free,  though not impressive, they capture moments in the past, fleeting glances, discursive thoughts, record phases in life, and often serve as cues to particular memories. 



快速寫生,為掌握動中的剎那,雖非佳作,但簡潔自由。這些素描,切入生命舞台的片段,一閃即逝的眼神、動作、意念。一如記憶之窗,駐足,回首,沈澱的情懷,時光交錯的因緣,無恆無暫,如幻如夢。
