The artwork “SACRIFICIAL SCOUR” is made solely of scouring pads. In the process of cleansing vessels, a scouring pad gets stained, torn and worn out.  In a way, it has “sacrificed”, hence making it a suitable material for depicting the theme.  The torn sheets of scouring pads are layered and patched to form the shape of an outstretched hand, with a cut hole and stained paint to represent Christ’s crucifixion.   When this work was first exhibited, a visitor exclaimed that he thought it looked like the sky clearing up in the centre amidst the gloom and a long path with lamp-post towards the right.  It was until he saw the hand at the end of the artwork that he realized it was the Christ’s hand!  This reminded me in John 14:6, where Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “, and “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105).  Indeed, God can work through humble everyday materials and this artwork to show Himself as the One who “called us out of darkness into His wonderful light”.

P.S. Relating to current pandemic, I am reminded through this artwork that we have to continue believing that Christ is faithful to deliver us from looming darkness!

The very first Passover refers to God preserving the Hebrews in Egypt by instructing them to put the blood of lamb (symbol of Jesus Christ as the sacrifice for man’s sins) on the top and both sides of the doorframes, and to stay indoors so that the destroyer would pass over the households when he saw the blood, and not harm them.  Coincidentally, Chinese down the history have also practised placing red couplets written with auspicious blessings over their doorframes to keep off evil spirits, and to celebrate the Pass-over of the “Year” (‘Nian’, 年, supposedly a legendary beast)…

The word “Lamb” (‘Yang’, 羊) appears in many Chinese characters related to peace, kindness, beauty, image, righteousness…, which may well suggest the sacrificial lamb of God – Jesus.  God’s still small voice indeed transcends time, space and cultures to proclaim His Shalom in this turbulent world…
