“Architecture is a three-dimensional visual art – architects use 3D software to visualize space, structure, construction, and material properties. Painting, on the other hand, is a two-dimensional method for reproducing three-dimensional memories. From the perspective of an architect, I want to bring up the topic of metamorphosis – a discussion on how modern technology and new methods of digital construction and fabrication affect traditional painting, both visually and theoretically. The works attempt to provoke in the viewer a renewed understanding of contemporary society – how what is old and what is new could co-exist together, and how they can each reinforce and strengthen the other.”
