含蓄的情緒表達方式 | HUMCHUK’S EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION

人大了,世界變得複雜,就算情緒壓力如洪水襲來,只想讓黑夜將其吞噬,天一亮又假裝失憶繼續過活。然而壓抑只會令負面情緒不停累積,就讓含蓄筆觸下的「面具人」,深入我們的内心,婉轉講出我們避而不談的情緒議題。

The world becomes more and more complicated when we are growing up. Even when emotions and pressures came as a flood, we tends to bury it in the night. Then we would pretend the negative thoughts are already gone when the sun rises and continue to live our life. However, repression will only cause negative emotions to accumulate. Let the “Mask Man” drawn by Humchuk penetrate into our hearts, and help us to speak up about emotional issues that we avoid tactfully.

你好嗎/近來怎樣/是要到那裏嗎/聞說/你變漂亮/聞說/你還在與那味道漂釀/聞説/你出了新的花香/換了新的包裝/迎上新的浪/聞說/你和我想的/不一樣/在陌生者的回憶/我聞見了你/從前的你/和現在的你

含蓄用簡單的黑色綫條勾畫出作品中的主角:「面具人」,他的表情一成不變,但總是賣力的做出不同的動作,而背景則留白,是想給看作品的人將自己的情緒投放到主角的面具上,從而找到共鳴感。

Humchuk utilizes simple black lines to delineate the protagonist, “Mask Man”, in his illustrations. “Mask Man”’s never have any expression but always with different actions. In addition, the background is left blank. The purpose is to let people project his/her own emotions on the mask and seek for resonance.

含蓄不時會畫下自己的内心想法,他亦會透過與人聊天蒐集一個又一個的故事,代入他們的角色,並將他們的故事轉化成插畫,更畫了一系列處理情緒的插畫,希望可以在亂世之中,治癒看到他作品的人,讓他們不要失去希望。

Humchuk often draws his own inner thoughts out from time to time. He would also collect stories from others through chatting, then substitute into their characters and turn their stories into one another illustrations. Even more, Humchuk have drawn a series of illustration about dealing with one’s emotions. He hopes that his artworks can heal those lost hopes in this troubled times.

小時候總能簡單表達自己的情緒,快樂就笑、不快就哭、思念就直説……成爲大人後負面情緒越積越多,卻越來越不懂得處理情緒。當然我們不能夠一時三刻就找到解開心結的方法,但含蓄表示他希望他的作品可以啓發思考,因爲知道並接受低潮也是一個過程,若不想直白說出感受,就嘗試以婉轉的方式表達自己,不去逃避情緒,習慣與各種情感共處就足矣。

When we were young, we can always simply express our emotions. Just laugh when we’re happy, cry when we’re sad, and say straightforwardly when we miss someone… Yet, negative emotions accumulate when we became an adult and we became more confused with dealing our emotions. It is for sure that we cannot find solutions in a moment. Humchuk says that he merely wish that his artworks can inspire people because to understand and accept the low tides is part of the progress as well. If you do not want to express your feelings straightforwardly, then you can actually try to express it tactfully. Not to avoid your emotions and to get used to coexist with all kinds of emotions is enough.

我想一定是有人把天空油得漆黑/好讓我們可以好好休息一下/只是一切都出了錯/我們才會身貼著身/心貼著心怕捱不過
