Catalogue Note

"As I observed the wooden grains on the skateboard, images of mist, clouds, mountains and water began to emerge, and these are features I wanted to preserve in this work. Hong Kong was once a fishing port, so I added an iconic sailboat within the water and clouds formed by the wood grain. The holes on the skateboard were also considered in the composition." - Lee Chi Ching

「看到滑板,我對着上面的木紋思考,漸漸看出了煙雲、山水,想盡量保留它們。香港曾經以漁港見稱,於是我加上了具代表性的帆船,暗示了木紋的水、雲。滑板上的幾個洞如何處理?令作品完美結合,都是我創作的思考因素。」── 李志清
