惜 (Cherished)

(Cherished)
澳門 中國 Macau China 1996

二十年前的一個秋天,我開始用照相機代替了畫筆。

不停的遊歷,放眼世界…

每當翻閱當年的旅遊照片和影集時,總驚覺世界變了!

是可惜;也是珍惜。

回首過去,自己錯過太多了,造物主不斷為我們塑造美麗動人、多采多姿的景緻,前人一直建造攝人、宏偉的古蹟,祇是當時我們太不懂欣賞和保存了。

當知道眼前一切,將褪色幻滅、蕩然無存,祇可成追憶時,情急的我又再次按動快門,貪婪地把眼前每一個動人畫面凝住。

雖然不斷提醒自己要順其自然,隨心隨意勿強求,但感覺仍然像以照相機速寫般,把觸動心扉的影像迅速地用心描繪下來珍藏。

對於藝術創作,由始至終我都抱著直接、純真和自然地反映「真、善、美」為宗旨。過去十多年,在我的攝影創作路上,家人和不少好友都曾先後支持和鼓勵,令我能有信心,勇敢地走自己的路和風格,在此誠心感謝,我將繼續努力創作!

二十年後的春天,被擱置多年的畫筆,將與我和照相機並肩向前。
攝影像領養孩子,而繪畫則像孕育孩子,兩者都帶來無限的安慰及滿足。期望畫筆和照相機可以為我這遲來的藝術創作者織夢和彌補失去的缺憾!

『可是,親愛的朋友們,有一件事你們不可忘記:在神的眼中,千年如一日,一日如千年。神並不像一般人所想的,遲遲不實現他的應許。相反地,他寬容人類;因為他不願意有一個人沉淪,卻願意人人悔改。』

(彼得後書3:8-9)

 

 

At times I caught myself startled by changes. Flipping through photo albums collected from my past journeys I had made, I exclaimed at how the world changed in front of my eyes.

Nostalgia? Yes, I do harbor such feeling but at the same time, I cherish all that I have seen and experienced.

Upon reflection we do miss a lot amidst the great works of the Creator, If only we were to take a still quiet moment to appreciate the beauty around us, if only we could care enough to appreciate and preserve.

Sensing an urgency to capture all that were presented to me, I fell prey to the greed that urge me to hold on to the most touching images, to preserve them in photography. I did remind myself to let go, to allow things to take their courses and yet I could not help but pick up my camera whenever an image moved me. I sometimes chuckled at the futility of my trying to stop the passing of time.

During the course of my creative pursuit, I have been honouring truth, compassion and beauty, honouring the natural form in which images are perceived. I have been blessed with the support of my family and friends throughout the 15 years of pursuing photography. Their support allowed me the confidence and freedom in following my heart. For this, I will always be grateful.

I have left my paintbrush idle for 20 years. I do think it is time to put down my camera and return to painting again. Perhaps it is guilt that prompted me to release images from the captivity of my lenses, perhaps it is the hope that my paintbrush would create spaces, spaces where dreams are made.

Photography is like adopting a child while painting is nurturing him, bringing abundant joy to life. I wish to pursue these passions, fulfill my life long dream & make up for the lost time.

“But, my loved ones, keep in mind this one thing, that with the Lord one day is the same as a thousand years, and a thousand years are no more than one day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his word, as he seems to some, but he is waiting in mercy for humankind, not desiring the destruction of any, but that all may be turned from their evil ways."

(2 Peter 3:8-9)
