Painting: Ink, Watercolor on Paper.
The weeks I spent in an old industrial area of Beijing on a recent residency presented me with days of blue-skied autumnal beauty, but also days of heavy pollution when the city was bathed in crepuscular gloom. I became interested in the quality of light on these days; especially when the sun’s rays struggled to break through the mists and at night when the air became a neon infused haze. The work began to respond to this visual phenomenon. A trip to the mountains near the Great Wall, north of Being, provided the inspiration for the series, 'the grimy softness', The fog of the city had stretched as far as the mountains, which were partially obscured by the shimmering mists, creating stratum of hypnotic and unsettling beauty.
