Morning Mist

Low Hai Hong was most excited to visit the art museums during his five months stay in Paris.  

 

The residency at Cite de Ville included free priority passes for many art museums in Paris.  This meant he would skip the queue (very important!) at the Louvre museum for example, and visit multiple times throughout his stay in Paris. 

 

He knew the masters' works well from books (not so much online at that time) but it was not the same.  Seeing the paintings face to face was an entirely different experience.  

 

He could now carefully observe the brushstrokes up close, examine the texture of the oil paintings, be consumed by the size of the actual works, study the actual colours of the paintings.  

 

There were no barriers between him and the masters now.

The Letter Home 

 

From all his overseas travels throughout the years, Low Hai Hong wrote only one letter home.  This was the letter from Paris.  

 

It was a letter for his family, as much as a letter for himself.  Been in Paris brought about so many feelings and thoughts that he had to write them down, and share with his closest. 

 

He was bursting with excitement, to see the masters in person at the museums, to indulge in the artistic city of Paris. 

 

Original letter written in Chinese:

你们能想像我在画布上的挥笔如飞的狂热。忘记一切,忘记困扰,专心一致地作画,吸收艺术大师的真迹,把这一切收归己有

 在不久的将来你们将看到一个正真的我,一个为艺术而忘记一切的我!

 

Translated in English:

Imagine me on the canvas, brushstrokes bursting with frenzy, painting with passion, forgetting everything, forgetting all my worries and burdens, fixated on my art.  

When you see me again, this will be the new me, the real me, the me who forgets everything and focuses exclusively on my art!

 

The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris continues with Evening Dust.


What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough - Eugene Delacroix
