Painting Installation 2017
Mixed Media /
This artwork is inspired by a piece of old red satin with beautiful embroidery which was given by my grandad for his friend’s wedding in the ’60s. It was filled with many signatures of well-known opera stars and guests.
The color <Red> is a creep hole for the artist to ramble on her artistic rebuttal about tradition and contemporary. In Chinese tradition, color has pre-occupied Chinese history as well as their conscious and subconscious mind for a long time, with its nepotic appearance, together with the storytelling nature of the opera art, all essential festive feelings will be awakened.
Records with the color <Red> capture the artist’s pursuit of the exploration of Cantonese Opera culture. The theme is grounded on the color <Red> and the storytelling characteristic of opera art as a thread to lead spectators to the artistic manifestation.
