DESCRIPTION (ENG)

More Art in Time Series (Cosmos) - Hours of time enclosed in our earth. Our earth which is a planet, also part of the universe, like all stars it will enlarge, dilate and vanish to lose sight.
璀燦,閃耀奪目,繼而往後消逝。

CLOSURE, by its name is meant to be a final, an end, a complete full stop in life. Closure is to mark the end of life and ‘Good-bye’ to a significant person. Life is a piece of art. Death is the masterpiece of life. Let Closure be the masterpiece of art.

Art provides a component for memory of the deceased, in addition to hope of an afterlife and reassurance of a loving spirit. The content of the artwork provides important clues to others regarding an individual’s thoughts and feelings. Much of what we understand the time history one has travelled on earth.

Making funeral pre-arrangements is slowly recognized as pragmatic thing to do. The setting down of parameters and indicating preferences for one’s own funeral can also be a gift of love to the survivors. Art integration into the cemeteries creates an atmosphere of condolences in this contemporary society.

My idea is to bring color into cemeteries. The colored art ceramic tile, originated from an art image will be heated to burn from an electronic prototype machine that coat the image onto the ceramic tile. The ceramic tile is a high quality proven material measuring 4” x 5” or 10.2 cm x 12.7 cm with thickness of 0.5 mm. Both ceramic tile and the image processing will be carried out by a local professional ceramic photo manufacturer. The finished colored art ceramic tile will become a unique representation to a well lived life.

生活不會太沉悶是因為我們能替生命塗上色彩, 風采彷如色彩、色彩既是藝術、那生命的色采應可在安息園中展現.

CLOSURE 「釋懷」 是人生完結的意思,那包含圓滿的結束沒有遺憾。 寓意放開,人生劃上圓滿的句號 。

人生在世是一道五彩繽紛的彩虹,每人都有不同的故事,身軀不在但人的精神永存。那麼墓園應是見證著無數燦爛的生命,為什麼墓園是黑、白、灰?

我想沒有理由不可以把色彩帶進墓園。時代進步我們已可以容納天堂電郵,網上悼詞及燃點焟燭,也應該可以容納色彩藝術成為墓園一部份,把瓷畫刻在墓碑上,成為其一生不朽的代表。

為什麼是畫? 「畫」是創作的,創作是感情的抒發,創作過程需要思考,思考當中有了個人的思想。就如作畫有不同的顏色,人生有不同的佈局。 此時作畫者、賞畫人都各自剖白,也因如比,彷如走進了人生的時間廊。

自此以後,墓園將不再陰暗詭異了,墓園是一個充滿顏色及美麗的地方。當人離去時,留下的不僅是一個名字,一個號碼,更是有獨特色彩、有代表性的藝術品。

但願每人可以開懷地去接納及準備自己這最後的謝幕,那將更圓滿。 
我希望這意念可以廣傳下去, 把藝術永遠融合在人的精神裏 ,這將更有意義。
