Art Description

Photography: Digital, Digital Art, canvas print, Photography and Collage on Canvas.

I was inspired by the extraordinary scene I saw in JiuZhaiGou, China. The lakes, the sky and the trees are taken from a scene in my imagination, except they stood before me. I was awed. The serenity and peace I felt lingers on and on. I could only stand there watching, watching … I saw a Paradise in the making, of exotic birds, of colourful fishes and … water, nature and sky dissolved into each other … becoming a calming space where birds and fishes of different geographies, shapes, sizes, colours and habits converge, descending into this dark shade of Persian Blue.

The four metres length, forces the viewers to glide along, discovering the details, and unraveling the mysteries and secret that was embedded in it. At times one could vaguely see a dragon, the auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac, dwelling beneath the water. In all one would always be energized after a hectic day my gazing into this Paradise, with perhaps a glass of red wine in hand and some soothing light music. As the creator, I too derive peace each time I look at them.

In all there are more than 40 birds used in this piece. Some are hidden and peering out from among the foliage, allowing the viewers to discover more of them as they would slowly glide their eyes along the landscape. The surreal landscape provided an opportunity to disrupt our senses, dissolving spatial limitation through reflections, distance, shapes and sizes, prying and dislodging the myriads impossibilities that could jolt our visual senses when we question the them. I would perceive Paradise is a place where the impossible becomes tangible and real.
