Additional Information

A composition inspired by trips to China. The background is composed with layered gradients created in Photoshop, scans of red tissue paper and the [prerequisite!] flood to create the illusion of depth. The painted circular designs [Rosettes] are from some of the Buddhist cave temples at Dunhuang.

The city was founded by Emperor Wudi of the Han dynasty in 111 BC at the crossroads of two trading routes on the Silk Road, and the name ‘Dunhuang’, meaning to ‘to flourish and prosper,’ gives some indication of the town’s prominence in ancient Chia. It is much less important today.

Buddhism reached China via the Silk and this is one of the more important Buddhist sites on that route. The Tangut or Western Xia ruled a substantial kingdom in the area, with its capital at Yichuan, for centuries until the Mongol conquest in the 1200s. They were the main sponsors of Buddhist construction at Dunhuang.

The door furniture [central designs] resulted from my reconstruction in Illustrator of some cupboard door fittings I bought in Wuzhen. As one of the top six ancient towns in the southern region of the Yangtze River, Wuzhen Water Town boasts more than six thousand years of history and has always been a fertile land with abundant rice, fish and silk. It preserves the ancient appearance well and oozes charm of the water town itself. The small town, with houses made of black bricks and gray tiles contrasting sharply with the white walls, making it appear like a Chinese ink wash drawing. Stone bridges are seen here and there. Small boats with black awnings are floating on the murmuring rivers. Whether wandering along the riverside or strolling in the lanes paved with blue flagstones, it is utterly enchanting.
