About The Artwork

In late 2012, I was fortunate to be the curator of an exhibition entitled 'Seven Deadly Sins'. As such, seven artists including myself, was invited to participate in the show, of which each artist was asked to create 2 sins each in the creation of their art-piece. My chosen sins were Pride and Gluttony. The artwork shown here is Gluttony, as represented in the animal form of a pig. The pig is large, robust and wanton. A bowl of fruit in the upper right is inspired by my yearly visit to the temple, whereby offerings of fruits and meat, are presented to the deities in hopes of financial prosperity and a better life. The orange and yellow are auspicious Chinese colors that compliment the desire for a better, richer life. Symbols here including the 2-directional arrow and cross are representative of the dialectic of such desire: it can be both good and bad. As with most traits in life, there must always be a balance.

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.
