Water is a symbol of life. And in many cultures and society it is also a symbol of prosperity. Water is the giver and sustenance of the myriad living things on earth.
Water is also a metaphor for a way of life. Bruce Lee, the inventor of Jeet Kune Do, put it philosophically,
“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
Formlessness epitomises that of the beyond. Be formless has always been my approach to art. Form is a state of cristallisation, frozen in a state of stasis. Art and artist must flow like water, the very essence of being alive.
