Bloom

This piece was commissioned by Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Macau.

Made of 10,000 piped flowers, this piece appears like frosting on a cake. The idea arose when I saw my mother taking flower piping classes, and instead of cream I experimented with paint. This gives an illusion of the painting looking like cream and candy, evoking a sense of playfulness, child-like wonder and joy. The origins of the lotus flower however starts in dark, murky waters. Despite the surface optimism, an undercurrent of darkness and tension exists.
