About CARVAL HO DAN

MY WORK IS ESSENTIALLY A TRANSFORMATIVE PROCESS OF CREATION.

I CAPTURE IMAGES OF CITYSCAPES, PEOPLE, URBAN FEATURES, ARCHITECTURE. THESE EASILY COMPREHENDED REPRESENTATIONAL IMAGES ARE THEN DISTILLED, ABSTRACTED AND REPURPOSED.

MY PRACTICE REMOVES THE CERTAIN RECOGNIZABLY INHERENT IN THE IMAGES, STRIPPING AWAY AND CHANGING SCALE, FEATURES, DETAILS AND POINTS OF VIEW.
THEY ARE THUS RENDERED DOWN TO THE FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING BLOCKS OF A NEW WORLD.

COMBINING THESE ABSTRACTED IMAGES, DYNAMIC COLLAGES OF FRACTAL PATTERNS AND RHYTHMS EMERGE FROM APPARENT CHAOS. THEY STILL CARRY WITH THEM THE FAINTEST SUBLIMINAL SIGNALS OF OUR REALITY, TRANSFORMING THEM INTO THE FOUNDATIONS OF A WORLD THAT NEVER EXISTED BEFORE.

AND YET, THE PERCEPTIVE VIEWER WILL SENSE A NAGGING FAMILIARITY FROM THE FAINT ECHOES OF OUR OWN REALITY THAT VIBRATE THROUGHOUT MY FINISHED WORKS.
