Calm Before the Storm

Mixed Media on Wood, Resin, Found Objects, Paint
2011

I went to seashores in HK to collect debris and trash, then use them in my artworks. I am always attracted to the damage details and textures of the abandoned, broken or old objects. Strength and power always manifest itself greatly through silence and imperfection. The calm is like meditation. But also there is a storm, a revolution within me when I see bravery, beauty and strength through the fragile objects.

The collection is also a tribute to one of my all time favorite film directors, Andrei Tarkovsky.
