Annabell Ng

黃畇綺

Annabell's works weave together the changes in natural environment, lifestyle patterns with stories. By exploring the cultural characteristics, customs, and traditions of the surrounding environment, she uncovers indigenous cultural elements rooted in the mysterious tropical rainforest.

The flora and fauna growing around her are bridges to the mysterious wisdom.

In her works, there are many fundamental elements collected and combined from nature; from their specimenization, reflected in the form of visual art, embodying the concepts of reality, truth, and knowledge. This presentation reflects the process of life and growth; where life and growth symbolize time. Annabell uses the concept of collecting different "times" to showcase the rhythm of life and time.

In addition to graduating from the Fine Arts department, Annabell studied music since childhood. Some of her works naturally incorporate the concept of musical scores. Her sculptures combine photography, painting, natural materials, etc., overlapping subtle cultural symbols and elements with on-site documentation and scenes.

Annabell's painting often starts from a binary form; using the "unity of two" as the main symbol of creation; this symbol metaphorically represents the balance between space and the natural environment, drawing unconscious marks between familiarity and belonging. Memories are transformed into abstract forms in her paintings, utilizing layers of wax preservatives and solidifying liquids as the primary media.


黃畇綺的作品編織著自然環境與生活格局的變化與故事。從探討周圍環境的文化特徵,習俗與傳統,她發掘本土文化元素源於神秘熱帶雨林。

周遭生長的動、植物對在馬來西亞長大的她來說是給人們通往神秘智慧的溝通橋樑;象徵生長的自然生態,傳統與文化有著息息相關的故事。

黃畇綺的作品中,有許多收集、組合自然元素的根本;從其標本化,再以視覺藝術的形式反映現實,真理和知識的規範概念。這種呈現方式反映著生命和生長的過程;而生命和生長則象徵時間。黃畇綺以收集不同的"時間"為概念,展示生命與時間的節奏。

除了畢業於美術系,黃畇綺從小學音樂。她的一些作品自然而然以樂譜的概念展現。她的其中雕塑集合了攝影,繪畫,天然材料等等,湊和現場紀錄與場景,巧妙地重疊細微的文化符號和元素。

黃畇綺的作畫多由二元形式開始;以"合二為一" 的形式作為主要的創作的符號;這種符號隐喻著空間和自然環境的平衡,在熟悉和歸屬感之間畫下無意識的記號。畫中將記憶轉化為抽象形式,利用蜂蠟的防腐、固化液體的層次效果作為主要媒體。
