Dreamy Crystal Ball
90 cm x 90 cm \ Acrylic on Canvas \ 2021
“The Dreamy Crystal Ball shows the Chinese Zodiac signs, which could be identified within the circles. The artwork of the dreamy crystal indicates a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. This work references Chinese history by exploring various relationships that distinguish the popular fine art and culture. The painting presented show half a rat and half-human to show relevant dimensions. The bright flowers show the plants of China which is considered as the circle of life.The crystal ball is also represented with a symbol of the home, which demonstrates the elements of Australia and the Chinese combination. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects, they are linked by recurring formal concerns and subject matter. The compatibility of the colours clearly reflects the origin of the Chinese by indicating the circles which signify the cultural thoughts. The Chinese culture shows that the world usually is not round since the spiritual elements of Chinese people hold them together and form a sign of unity. The Dreamy Crystal Ball basically signifies the culture of the people, which lies in their hearts and shows their origin. The compatibility of the colours clearly reflects the origin of the Chinese by indicating the circles which signify the cultural thoughts. The relevancy of the circles in the dream crystal ball clarified the nature of Chinese culture, which could also be embraced by the feeling of joy and sorrow, especially when an individual could miss their home.”

The Gathering is an anthology of Chinese mythological creatures as they move around the natural environment. In Chinese tradition, nature is composed of five elements called the Wu Xing: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Gathered around Wu Xing are the ten mystical creatures. This work depicts the peace and harmony among the Earth’s living and the nonliving components. And in the middle of them all, is the faithful woman, hoping for nature’s wondrous fortune. With ferocity, the dragon is the head of the ten beasts.The phoenix is the mightiest of the winged creatures. The hooved Kirin and the mighty elephant symbolise peace and prosperity. Longevity is guided by the turtle. The celestial crane embodies elegance and attracts favours. While the brave troops, toad, bat and fish bring forth different forms of wealth and fortune. These brightly-coloured beasts revolve around the woman in the painting as if discussing how to provide her with the most auspicious fortune.Similar to practice, the painting requires one to look carefully to see them. As the beasts move through the five elements, they provide the woman with peace and harmony-- within and without. As powerful as the beasts are, the Narcissus and Osmanthus flowers influence favours to devotes. The Narcissus symbolises affection among family and friends. The Osmanthus, on the other hand, blooms around the Chinese National Day—epitomising good fortune. The woman, with her eyes closed and her hands, joined together, personifies Chinese faith and fortune. She is surrounded by the overwhelming beasts, but she remains at peace. She does not let them consume her, but she reveres them for their auspicious nature. The Gathering shows elaborate details to bring the beasts to life. Despite the use of numerous colours, each hue is carefully chosen to mirror the same peace and harmony.
