Inspired by the works of intricate embroidery on the Emperor's robe from the Qing Dynasty, these dragons have been brought into the modern world and tasked with guarding Hong Kong from evil influences. They fly over the city, defending against darkness and bringing strength and light to the people of this bustling metropolis.
This dragon flies overWong Tai Sin and surrounding area, breathing in the sweet perfume of the temple offerings and keeping an eye on the turtle ponds!
Everyone should have artistic expression in their lives, not only people with spare time or big budgets. Sustainable materials are my preference.
In 2020 - 21 my work has taken a new direction. Moving away from watercolour I am finding the play of light and shadow created by hanging paper and lightboxes to be pulling me down a new path. Making complex ideas into single shapes is a challenge and whan I find that perfect shape that conveys a whole story it is incredibly exciting. The more I work with paper, the more possibilities emerge.
In response to the lack of face to face classes during the time of Covid, the HK Mail Art Club came into being - a weekly mail out of DIY art kits to do at home. The kits invite you to assemble, colour and construct paper based figures, while learning about the natural world.
