In LI Kwok Ying's university study, she explored varied media and forms of art such as Chinese painting, seal engraving, printmaking, media art and performance art. Each medium or form has its own language for her to express herself. She is still exploring in the hope of finding a language that suits her best. Through varied media, she intends to express her emotions and thoughts including her negative feelings, self-identity and interpersonal relationships. LI believes that problems are endless in life and pain is an inevitable result. That's why she makes art in search of meaning. Life is arduous and yet there is no panacea; however, she is still able to put them into her artworks after all.

在學期間,李國英接觸了國畫、篆刻、版畫、媒體藝術以及行為藝術等不同的創作媒介和形式,每一種藝術媒介和形式都是一種表達自我的語言,她還在積極探索,希望能尋找到最適合自己的語言。她通過不同的媒介訴說自己對生活難題的思考,例如負面情緒,自我認同,以及人際關係等。生活問題不斷,很多痛苦因此產生,她認為必須通過作品賦予其一些意義。生活很難,不存在完美解決問題的方案,但至少問題過後,她可以通過作品將它記錄下來。

《牛油果裡的惡魔》是印章和項鍊的結合。我以牛油果核作為新材料雕刻印章,然後用銅線加工製成項鍊。篆刻的圖像來自一次心理測試的結果——一隻在打招呼、頭上長著角的惡魔。惡魔象徵著我的陰暗面或慾望。牛油果核的橫截面像一顆心,不規則彎曲的銅線象徵著內心的混亂和掙扎。我將此印章製成項鍊以便我隨身攜帶,提醒自己惡魔的存在並與之共存,不要忽略或壓制它。

This work is a combination of a seal and a necklace. I use the core of an avocado as a new material to engrave the seal, then combine it with copper wire to make a necklace. The content of the seal is a demon with horns saying hello. This is a result of a psychological test. The demon symbolizes my subconscious mind. It may represent my dark side or desire. The beveled surface of an avocado core is shaped like a heart. Irregularly curved copper wire symbolizes inner chaos and struggle. I turned this seal into a necklace so I can take it anywhere to remind myself of the demon’s existence. Not ignore or suppress it, but coexist with it.
