When I visited The Summer Palace in Beijing in January, 2013, I looked into the frozen lake and saw children pushing themselves on toboggans with poles, with their parents nearby. I liked how colourful everyone’s clothes were and how happy they all seemed to be.
I thought the dynamic shape of everybody stood out the most, and I wanted to imprint that shape onto an abstract photo. The abstract photo I chose was a 35mm photo I had taken at Ann Veronica Janssens’ exhibition in London, yellowbluepink, last year. The everchanging gradient throughout the photo makes the dynamic shapes seem a little less defined, less realistic, but distance is still in effect.
