TSOI Wing Chau
TSOI Wing Chau, Rachel's creative style mainly revolves around emotion, narrative and humour. She likes to express her emotions and feelings through metaphors, fables and symbols. She also hopes that the audience will reflect on the messages while watching her works.
As a student who loves illustration, she believes that the form of illustration is not only limited to 2D but also applied to different media such as animation, comics, storybooks, etc, which brings different feelings to viewers. Therefore, besides painting and illustration creation, she is also keen on other fields, such as animation, sculpture, book design and 3D design, trying to explore the surprises brought by different media.

I used to think that creation was limited to a single medium. For example, most of the tools for oil painting were paintbrushes or large brushes, and Chinese brushes were used for landscape painting. However, with the opening up of information and judging from the materials of modern art creation, more and more creators have become more diversified in the choice of media in order to fully express their ideas. They are no longer restricted by a single media, moving towards the use of mixed media. In “Crack series”, I have used different kinds of tools that can be used in daily life and tried to present the texture and cracks of the stone by using ink with these tools. During the process, it was interesting to see the variability of using different tools to create the artwork. Each tool may have different limitations in creation such as the ruler and sponge, but the possibility of media unlimited and the final outcome was quite amazing which also has greatly inspired my future creation.
