The Black Square Series: To Add 30 miles to an Anonymous Mountain
Oil on canvas, 35x143cms.
2nd painting from The Black Square series.
Unable to read and speak Chinese, I am limited to English-language and visual resources. I thought it would be interesting to begin a dialogue with Chinese artists, starting with Zhang Huan, about Hong Kong’s current political climate. His title refers to an old saying: “Beyond the mountain, there are more mountains…”. My adaptation refers not only to the challenges faced by HongKongers, but also the spirit of their 30 mile human chain.
