Portrait Series: Jay
breaker-line

2012

Shanghai, China

The “Portrait” series was composed in the early 2000s, during time spent in Shanghai. Inspired  by a desire to bring awareness to the stories of China and its people with the world, it features well-known Chinese media figures including athletes, filmmakers and performance artists. Each portrait embodies the  making of art using unconventional materials, such as basketballs, socks, pins, bamboo chopsticks and coffee cups. In China, the manufacturing capital of the world, such everyday objects are largely affordable  and sold in bulk, opening up greater possibilities for creative experimentation in art.

肖像系列是于早期2000年在中国上海创作的作品。此系列主要是以中国知名人物,包括运动员、 电影制片人及表演艺术家的肖像为主题来分享当地的人、事、物,以便让外界对中国有更深一层 的认识。每幅画像都运用了不一样的材料例如:篮球、袜子、筷子、杯子等物品来作画。由于中国有制造之都之称,比起在国外,利用大量日常用品来作画来得更方便和实惠,这也朔造了更多 艺术创造的可能性。
