In this new collection the cityscape is refined into bold, bright icons. Drawing its name from the Greek word for colour, Chroma, I have abstracted picture postcard Hong Kong into a vibrant burst of Pop Art images.
Now blurred edges are refined into geometric line; cross-hatched slivers of the city find their edges in a shared plain of bright acrylic. And yet, among the hyper-focused, electric imagery, human touches and life play out: a man picks his teeth in a door jamb framed by pots, a woman leans from her window to escape the humidity whilst another juggles her phone and umbrella walking down the street.
I cannot wait to expand this work - with new colour combinations and different imagery. I plan to bring in a lot more flora and fauna - creating a delicate balance we often experience in HK, between the curving softer edges of the foliage and the solid architectural lines of the buildings.
Hope to see you at the fair.
