About Winnie Davies

 

Started drawing portraits by self-taught as early as I remember at the age of 4 before I could read or write. I was fascinated to draw people.  Perhaps that was the first thing I saw, being surrounded by people everywhere in Hong Kong. Before I went to the University of Hong Kong to study Fine Arts, I received my initial art training in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy from old Chinese masters in conventional way.  I have found that my Chinese traditional training laid an important foundation for my art development later. Even though when I started oil painting and sculpture, I could still apply the theory of Chinese art into different media. For instance, the brave decision of Chinese ink painting strokes encourages me to spread oil paints on canvas boldly without hesitation. On the other hand, the preciseness of every stroke I learnt from Chinese calligraphy can be applied to every cut I make the decision in marble sculpture. One may not imagine that how Chinese calligraphy is linked to stone sculpture. In fact, their theories are the very similar. For example: every stroke you make on calligraphy has to be so forceful and precise on paper, it parallels to every cut I make on marble sculpture. If you make a mistake on your decision, a wrong stroke on paper or a wrong cut on stone, there is no U-turn. Therefore one may see a fusion of my Chinese roots into my oil paintings and my sculptures.
