Speaking of his favorite work, Lee Chi immediately recalled a piece he had made in 2015 called “the PAIN”. At the time, the whole team was very young, with limited funds, they took a leap of faith, expending all their funds and resources to create the piece. The combination of wax and plants created a piece full of tension, that explored the idea of “pain”. Pain is something that everyone experiences, yet may be hard to put to words at times. Many people's’ impression of plants are romantic and joyous, however, Lee Chi chose to depict these plants to express sorrow. “Plants have different emotions, I hope to express them in ways people can’t recognize”.
However, pain is only a small part of what inspires Lee Chi to create work. Where the core of what supports his work is “Love”, believing that love is everywhere and around everyone. Humbling himself to allow voices of others to be heard, using his acute sensibilities as an artist, Lee Chi has found a space for emotions to be able to be heard. Even if the space is narrow, it awaits audiences to slowly experience it.
