Catalogue Note

"How's your day!? belongs to my creation of 'Implication' Series.


About the 'Implication' Series, it started after my father's passing on 1st January 2017, through my fondest memories and nostalgia of him. It was in California, that I saw him for the last time. He was deep asleep and ever so peaceful, with several copies of Old Master Q by his side, keeping him company. At that moment, all the images and memories of my father over the past decades came back to me all at once; these thoughts lingered in my mind for months afterwards without ever settling.


My father made a living with his comics, yet this was not something he had expected. Although his works have become a symbol of Hong Kong, I only saw this as one of his many talents. I can only use my imagination when thinking about him - what if he had been a pop musician, a modern painter, a sculptor, or a ceramic artist...perhaps a race car driver, a crazy scientist, or an athlete...I even believe that it could have been more appropriate for him to have become a film script writer or a director, as he would then be able to integrate all his talents into his work.


I once spoke with my younger brother Anthony Wong (who is an animator for Disney and Pixar) about author Zhu Zhiqing's description of his own father in his work Retreating Figure, and how it was different from the impression our father had left with me. My father had turned around and left, quietly taking with him his multitude of talents to another world. There he may again pursue his ideals and dreams. With this image of him, no word can ever describe the fantastic and colorful impression he has left on us. Farewell, dad!" - Professor Joseph Wong


Joseph Wong is a professor of architecture, he retired in 2016 after more than 30 years of service. He is the second-generation author of "Old Master Q". His workshop currently locating in Taipei was established in 1996.

「『你今日點呀!?』」是我的《弦外之音》系列之一。


關於《弦外之音》系列創作,始於2017年1月1日父親離世後,對父親的懷念而作。到加州我看了父親最後一眼,他是如此安詳的沉睡著,旁有幾本《老夫子》漫畫相伴。頓時,我腦海裡浮現的都是對父親幾十年來的記憶影像,這景像持續了好幾個月,都未沉頓。


父親這輩子以畫漫畫維生,是他自己也沒想到的。他的作品雖然已是一個香港時代的圖標符號,對我來說,這只是他天分的一部份,我只能以想像來衡量他——假如他是個流行樂手,或是一個現代畫家、雕塑家、陶藝家,又或他是個賽車手,瘋狂科學發明家、運動明星…...,甚至,我覺得更合適他發揮的是電影編劇和導演,他可綜合他所有的才能在作品裡。


我與弟弟老四王灝(Disney及 Pixar 動畫師)討論朱自清著作的《背影》中,對他父親的形容,有別於我對父親留下的背影。父親轉過身去,帶著他一身剩下來的才華默然離開,到另一個世界去施展他的理想。在他的背影上,千言萬語亦難形容這多姿多彩的印象。再見了,父親!」── 王澤
