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.

Metta fun workshop

Teaching an art workshop is a most rewarding experience — to be able to share my love for art and sculpture and impart whatever skill I have gained over the years. And one of the best workshops has to be the one at Arts@Metta held earlier this month, October 2022. This opportunity was made possible, thanks to our mutual friend, Daniel Foo, who asked if I would be an arts mentor to two Metta students. Two quickly grew to ten very enthusiastic participants. We spent three very enjoyable days during which I taught the young artists how to use wire and modelling clay to create the designs they wished. #MettaWelfareAssociation #sculpture #sculptureworkshop
