LEUNG Hiu Ting
People don’t need to deliberately find violence, violence exists naturally.'
LEUNG Hiu Ting, Sunny believes the human is born with evil and she desires to adhere to the essential inclination of humans through her creations. She expresses and releases her innermost negative and violent essences, including her anger, sadness, and perplexedness, when she creates her works. Destroying the work, rebuilding it, and remixing it became the way for her to explore her personality. During these past few years, she has created works of art showing the wildness of animals and the characteristic of humans in response to her innermost being and representing her personality.

Screaming is related to my personal feelings and desires. In this bloody and violent painting, I show the wildness of animals and the characteristics of humans which responds to my innermost being. The word, ‘screaming’, represents the sound that comes from an animal when they are being killed, also, representing myself. It is too painful for me to construct my innermost feeling and my natural disposition.
