LKH artWorks

Shan Hai Jing? literally translated to mean look of the Mountain and the Sea is an exhibition of wood-block prints and ink paintings of monsters by print-maker, Low Khay Hooi, developed over a period of 2 years. The prints, on rice paper and painted over with coloured-ink washes, are one-of-a-kind, single edition prints. Low takes the topographical maps of Malaysia as his starting point. He extracts shapes from these maps as found in school text-books and develops them into imaginary hybrid monsters that affect the weather, bring disease, protect or threaten the population of the area.
In this exhibition, Low presents his prints like pages from an imaginary anthropologist log-book, with each print introducing one or two of his monsters associated with a town or region in Malaysia. Accompanying the images, is Chinese text providing an explanation of the mythical significance of these fantasy creatures to their environment. The format loosely refers to that of Chinese almanacs and early anthropological texts.

For Low, these prints are a fun and enjoyable strategy for him to develop a body of imagery that will form the visual vocabulary for his future work. For the viewer, they recall a school child wild imagination at work in the form of doodles made during the long hours of boredom in the classroom.
This exhibition will be his first solo exhibition. Shan Hai Jing will be on exhibit at Reka Art Space from 24 May 2007 to 23 June 2007.

这是我们在母亲节做的小礼物, 我们叫它"蝴蝶妈妈和毛毛虫宝宝"?~名字好像太长了? 还是叫"蝴蝶+毛虫贺卡"?~这名又怪怪地? 算了, 不管它叫什么, 妈妈喜欢就好了(哈!但小朋友好像更喜欢~) 上回, 恩妮送了我一只用tissue做的, 可以爬动的毛毛虫, 实在是太可爱了, 当时就想到母亲节让小朋友制作这个小手工, 大家一定会喜欢的! 果然, 小朋友爱不释手, 但有些妈妈看到毛毛虫在动时, 竟大叫"geli"哈~也太幽默了吧? 还好我们也做了漂亮的蝴蝶卡, 那就好玩的毛毛虫归小朋友, 美丽的蝴蝶送妈妈吧.
