"Pathways, Gods and Dragons’

 

The inspiration of "Pathways, Gods and Dragons’ is from immersion in the local environment. The urban environment of Hong Kong and Asia provides layer upon layer of sensory stimulation, sights sounds and smells that become the visual language of the art work. Further inspiration is found in the mythology and cultural histories of Asia. The temples, festivals and daily life are experiences that create the foundation for visual idioms. Drawn images, found material and writing are assembled to create pictorial storytelling for the viewer.

"Pathways, Gods and Dragons" is a personal response to twelve years of Hong Kong life, a visual reinterpretation of these experiences.
