Jessie Hui, Jetty

Jessie Hui’s new body of work explores the process of wellness and self-love. Hui paints the healing journey from a third-person perspective, where her work narrates the struggles and progress of a cat in its quest to find peace. Telling the story of an animated cat, Hui’s absence from the work allows viewers and herself to examine the personal experience from a distance, from a God’s angle with more clarity and rationality.

Each painting presents a different snapshot of the journey, travelling through the ups and downs of the physical and mental worlds. From outdoor adventures with social groups to a confrontation with one’s mind and soul in solitude, the cat is finding ways to heal and it surely takes time to be aware and to feel at ease with one’s self.
