郭嘉行 Kwok Ka Hang S3


“Art is a reflection of human nature and thought; something transcending time and boundaries, tying humanity together. Art can be simple, a language allowing us to express freely and convey what words cannot. Art plays a significant role in shaping and inspiring these developments in history. It is through making art, that we are able to understand and capture our past and present so vividly.”


Watercolour on paper | 53cm x 42cm

This painting is inspired by the concept of Kinsukuroi, a Japanese bowl mending method where broken bowls are not abandoned, but mended and put
back together with gold: its flaws become part of the pottery, unique to each individual piece.
I feel as if the important role of the father in a child’s life is often overlooked in society, thus I modelled this portrait after my dad, and would like to dedicate this piece to him, and all the good fathers in the world.
Just like the potter in my painting, a good father can help their child grow and will not abandon them despite their flaws and mistakes. With a father’s guidance, we can learn to appreciate our uniqueness, and better ourselves. We as a society should learn to appreciate loving and nurturing fathers in the world.
