This ‘swing’ series of prints is inspired by the Chinese concept of Yin and Yang and my experience of moving from countryside to town, town to city, and country to country. In traditional Chinese belief the circle represents the sky and the square represents the land. Thus, ‘Earth’ is represented by a square and ‘Heaven’ by a circle. In Chinese this is expressed as ‘Tian Yuan Di Fang’  in which ‘Tian Yuan’ means Heaven represented by a circle and ‘Di Fang’ is Earth represented by a square.  This also relates to the idea of Yin and Yang.

My work explores the integration of traditional Chinese Painting ‘freehand style’, also known as ‘literati painting’, with a western oil painting style. I am combining my Chinese Painting skills with a more painterly approach to contemporary printmaking. I employ inter-disciplinary skills to express my unique cross-cultural perspective. My work is concerned with transmutation of technique, subject matter, self and outside influences

‘Rotary life’ is a set of four circular prints which slowly rotate. They  also represent instability.
