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.

Cultural Medallion

So honoured to be awarded the Cultural Medallion for visual arts for 2014. Grinned from ear to ear, shook the hands of many, received congratulations galore, “chatted” with Mr. President and his wife, flashbulbs popped (do they today?) in my face, interviewed by multi media, saw my larger-than-life face on a billboard … THANK YOU, everyone, for your support.
