SUMMARY :

I have been teaching at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University for many years, hence having incisive personal experience of working at this historic relic. My Poem (詩 - "寫我心曲") highlights some of my most memorable moments on the Kai Tak Campus:

      台上修晨課
      榕下聽暮蟬
      教學畫室裡
      雅集展廊中

      With morning devotion
      I begin my day on the verandah;
      Under the evening banyan trees
      I hear the cicadas whisper.

      As a hub of learning
      the painting studio flourishes;
      At the gallery
      the refined and the talented converge.

      (English Translation by Dr. Vaughan Mak, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)

In this part of my public performance of calligraphy, I transform the four lines in my poem into four separate yet interconnected works of calligraphy in a manner that the self-expressive elements in the brushwork, including the rhythm embodied in the brushstrokes and the spontaneous ink tonality, reinforce the lingering poetic lyricism.
