33. The Blue Masks 藍面罩

2017, woodcut木刻, 61 x 90 cm

What this woodcut print shows is not a depiction of a carnival or a masquerade but a surrealistic allegory of Hong Kong’s reality. There’s no need to explain why all those masked figures are given the same colour. It’s an apparent fact that they all agree in the dark.

這張木刻並不是描繪嘉年華會或化裝舞會,而是作為反映香港現實的一個超現實寫照。此圖看來也不須解釋為何畫中群像無一例外統統以同一顔色出現。總之,一個顯而易見的事實就是他們在黑暗中很投合。
