Jay

A tribute to Jay Chou, inspired by his song, “Secret”.

This project was inspired by the opening and closing lines in Jay Chou’s song, ‘Secret/不能说的秘密’. The opening line is about lifting a coffee cup from a saucer, “冷咖啡离开了杯垫” and the last line of the song is about autumn leaves and fragmented pieces, “飘落后才发现 这幸福的碎片, 要我怎么捡?”. I decided to use hundreds of individual coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect like fallen autumn leaves, to form Jay Chou’s portrait. My painting is meant to look like a sepia-toned old photograph, so as to capture the essence of his story.
