Artwork concept – “Interaction”
Inspired by the city flâneur, the artist abstracts two human figures in motion to express the relationship. The figures are shaped as irregular structures to reflect different characteristics and reactions of people to an “interaction” of any kind. The two are somewhat connected in part, yet maintaining some space in between. The paths crossed but overall balance is well maintained. Such is the kind of “respect” to show for one another and the harmony we like to bring to our neighbourhood. Interaction in red seeks to arouse viewers’ attention to embrace and to live up to the core values of life.
