Low Sok Hui
I write, erase, rewrite
Erase again, and then
A poppy blooms.“A Poppy Blooms” by Katsushika Hokusai
Akin to the above haiku, everyday living and encounters are transient. We are on a constant search to find meaning, to communicate and to understand intentions.
What is real versus what is imagined?
What are we looking for?
Do you know what you are looking for?
Sok Hui is an artist educator who enjoys exploring and playing with materials. As an educator, she advocates artmaking through discovery. Engaging with the unknown is crucial to her creative process where she allows her ideas to take shape through experimentation.
She loves the use of thread in her work as it reminds her of her childhood experiences of sewing and mending items with her grandmother and her mother. Also, the use of thread in her work embodies the concept of connections and detachments; fragility versus strength – the dualities she sees that are in constant existence in our daily lives.
