“Glisten” breaking away from past styles Murphy Chen uses realistic techniques to portray and record the abstract ripples (sprays). Inheriting the topic of the previous exhibition “Sea” the artist further explores the relationship with nature. Through the waves that continuously wash the shore and the sun casting its light on the water, this creates “Glistens” on the surface of the water. The constant drifting and clashing of the waves construct a series of sprays in the water. It is a conversation between these movements. Sometimes close sometimes far way but when they meet they form radiant and unlimited possibilities waiting for people to discover.
Through the eyes of Murphy Chen, one will see the abstract images and may have the opportunity to reflect upon them. Pounder on the paths of the future, the chances of meeting someone, understanding someone, and leaving someone are all part of the experiences people share with each other in life. One can recall the endless curiosity deep down in our hearts to look for different aspects and time periods of our lives. Memories stay for eternity in our minds yet some are lost in the grey area, the area of unknown and known. Let us step out to the unknown and lose ourselves, open our arms and embrace in this wonderful world of “Glisten”.
