Imagined reality: Birds and Flowers Australia

November 2022

I came to appreciate the beauty of traditional East Asian flower and bird paintings, particularly their composition. This appreciation drew my attention to aspects beyond the animals and figures that have always captivated me. I have a routine of spending time outdoors almost every day and frequently go bushwalking. While living in Australia, I took the opportunity to observe my surroundings through the lens of my interest in Eastern painting composition. Thus, I named this series 'Imagined Reality: Birds and Flowers Australia,' as it brings together two worlds.
