The Middle Kingdom

The Middle Kingdom

These  paintings are parts of an ongoing series of works titled ‘The Middle Kingdom’, which are all pieces inspired by the sights and history of China, where I am currently based. I find China to be particularly evocative in light of my thematic concerns and interests, with a wealth of history reflecting the wider rise and fall of civilizations. The various pieces can be understood as elements of a fragmented narrative, which can be viewed in isolation or as pieces of a whole. There is no linear  progression through the images as such, rather I am trying to evoke a sense of cyclical time, the constant rise and aspirations as well as the fall and cynical decline: the ebb and flow of history through human traces and artifacts.
