VIEW IN MY ROOM
My mood became darker during this period of painting, but I have become more attuned to my brushtrokes. I went ahead and bought some new brushes. They were softer and finer compared to the ones I would usually purchase, which are course and hard. I could see where this was taking me, but only after realising my earlier works desired a certain feeling (not look or style). I can see how my feeling were guiding and leading my way of creating the artwork, and not my intellectual analytical left-brain. In this painting, there were many stages where I felt it could have been a complete painting. I took photos. Although they were what I call accomplished works on its own, I decided to let it go and continue painting. It spoke in the quiet (or cacophany) of my mind to take it further. ‘This has already been done’ was the message. I knew what the message was telling me. I had to take it further and evolve my craft, and thus began a new layer with the softer brushes, and new discoveries into my consciousness. I was listening to Hans Zimmer at this moment in time. I recall the track from The Dark Knight as I was finishing the piece. The mood foreboding and dangerous, yet beckoning one to enter into the shadows. Come my child. Come.

Norm Yip (葉灃) was born in Canada in 1963 by Chinese parents. After studying fine art in Saskatchewan and architecture in Toronto, he moved to Hong Kong where began working as an architect. In 1999, he decided to transition into fine art and photography, following his deeper passion into his personal interests. He formed a collective called Melo-Melo Artist Alliance with several friends. It was then that his journey into art began. Oscillating between photography as a main source of income and painting as a hobby, he began to assert more attention and time to the latter. He has exhibited numerously in both solo and group exhibitions in Hong Kong, and most recently in Bangkok, Italy and New York. He currently resides in his birthplace province of Saskatchewan, Canada where he continues to paint and photograph.
