Artist’s statement

Chong Fahcheong – Artist’s statement

My involvement in creative work pursuits, in particular, sculpture, is a state of mind. It is a consciousness, an acute awareness of my existence, made up of limitless variables and possibilities. It is a life process where “givens” are challenged, nature re-evaluated and life re-created.
As a sculptor, I see myself as the most independent individual in my environment, able to comment about any phenomena through what I depict, through allegory, metaphor, material, form and shape.
I do not need to be party to anyone or anything, nor to conventional structures or institutions.
I strive in my sculptures “to be”, realizing the “aim” of being myself, my longings, anxieties, joys and doubts, away from conditions, learned responses, habits or addictions.
I choose not so much to reflect life’s experiences as attempt to re-state them through a keener expression of my sensibilities and personal creation.

After the excitement of the Cultural Medallion award and all its attendant attention that Fahcheong received, he came back to Canada to the winter.

Being no bear, he did not, could not hibernate. Instead, it was a little quality time to enjoy being with the family over the holiday period. and some winter activities like snowshoeing, x-country skiing, and yes, even shovelling away the snow from the driveway.

But now, he’s gone from cold to hot — he’s in Thailand, beginning work on another exciting project. Here’s a sneak peek:
