  • Artist’s Statement

    “I am only a part of the work I have created. I strongly sense that time and space have been playing their incontestable roles, through me, on to the work.
    My practice in the medium is about building up watercolor, and then to dematerialize it to the parallel notion of material (visceral) and immaterial (cerebral), which is also reminiscent of the eastern philosophy - between like it and not like it.”
    Paul Ching-Bor
