The Fevolution series was created the same way
Meandering between fantasy and reality, interwoven with natural and mechanical beings, Fevolution is about infinite evolutionary possibilities. fantasy evolution fevolution Creating this series was like having two currents of natural and mechanical forces collide and grow into a hurricane in my head, driving through my soul. While each stream brought its own elements, Fevolution was born in the eye of that hurricane, in a quiet place of infinite change. With this constant movement in me, Fevolution sparked from my imagination, leading to the drawings in this book. These works consider the coexistence of opposites, of reality and fantasy, the physical and the metaphysical, body and soul, relying on each other to become one. 68 – 69 Looking through the glass is… The combination of stillness and motion fascinates me and helps inform my ideals. I use translucent layers to show the mechanical ingredients within organic beings and the intimate relationships of the two. The clarity and complexity of the natural and the mechanical, both static and dynamic, therefore convey an impersonal objectivity and coolness. The ideals, concepts and significances in Fevolution are built like Lego bricks, assembled to construct a bigger picture. Stimulated by my religious beliefs, I play with codes and icons to compose my images. Four fundamental elements, the metal screw, the vertebra, the atom and the lotus finger – are the visual vocabulary in the Fevolution series. The screw represents machinery; the backbone stands for nature; the atom signifies a source of energy; and lastly, the lotus finger holds the beliefs of evolution.
