Inspired in China
Touring exhibition after my visit to Guizhou in China, invited by the China Cultural Center in Malta, with venues including the Launch at the Parliament of Malta Building, January 2018.
SkyParks Malta International Airport, May 2018.
The Ministry of Gozo, May 2018.
Light and nature come together. Red is a most auspicious colour in Chinese culture. It is a bold choice but one I make gladly, particularly for Where Flowers Bloom So Does Hope. Working with translucent materials while exploring shapes from nature. The decorative perspective of this work echoes similar artifacts I saw across various parts of Guizhou.
Traditions are among the things that are likely to draw a visitor’s attention when visiting countries like China where elements of intangible cultural heritage are deeply embedded in everyday life.
