    The brief was to create 19, five meter high lacquered artwork panels for the stunning new six star Ritz Carlton Hotel, Hong Kong. They are housed in the private dining areas overlooking the Hong Kong harbour from the 102 floor. The artworks took months to complete, and there were many stages to creating these artworks. Following the concept of the Chinese elements, the work shows Chinese floral intertwined within ink dispersed in water. Literally hundreds of photos of ink in water were taken with a specialist high speed camera. A library of floral images then had to be art worked to blend seamlessly with the photography. As the panels are housed in 3 rooms, each room is dominated by its own individual floral spirit. With the panels reaching five meters high, and the balance between floral and ink creating tricks on the eye, the viewer will have a new relationship with the art each time it is viewed. Read Less

Ritz Carlton Hotel: Hong Kong
Artworks for the private dining areas, floor 102
The brief was to create 19, five meter high lacquered artwork panels to be housed in the private dining areas overlooking the Hong Kong harbour from the 102 floor of the new six star Ritz Carlton Hotel. It is the highest hotel in the world.

The artworks took months to complete, and there were many stages to creating these artworks. Following the concept of the Chinese elements, the work shows Chinese floral intertwined within ink dispersed in water. Literally hundreds of photos of ink in water were taken with a specialist high speed camera. A library of floral images then had to be art worked to blend seamlessly with the photography.

As the panels are housed in 3 rooms, the artworks are split into the Blossom room, Orchid room and Secret Garden room, with each room dominated by its own individual floral spirit. With the panels reaching five meters high, and the balance between floral and ink creating tricks on the eye, the viewer will have a new relationship with the art each time it is viewed.
