SUMMARY

Compressed was inspired by the pressurized culture of contemporary Hong Kong. As in most of my artworks, figures are portrayed without facial expressions. These vacant faces represent urban life in the city, which robs us of our identity as citizens. Lost in the crowds, we’re close together but isolated, compressed physically but ultimately alone.
