Figure Studies Series

heading figure studies series

 
Figure studies is the fundamental practice of every artist. It can be pursued in many different ways with a variety of materials. For Dr. Choong , among other approaches, the figure is often taken as a subject for analytical studies. The figure is seen as an integral part of the surrounding environment. Form, lines, space, weights, light and shade are juxtaposed and integrated on the 2-dimensional plane to form a homogeneous entity. The figure and ground relation is pursued with the emphasis on the interplay and interaction of positive & negative space, movements, flows, visual balance and tension.
人物素描是每一个艺术家的基本习作,它可以从不同角度以不同的媒材去进行。锺博士则在采用不同手法的同时,着重以分析手法去处理人物对象。并把人物当作是环境中不可分离的一部分。把形态,线条,空间,量感和光暗并列和融汇在 2 维平面上而形成一体。在物与景的关系上比较注重虚实空间,动态,视觉平衡和张力的交汇和互动。
