Illuminations in the Key of Bloom (2017)
Ian Woo (1967 - ), Singapore
Suzhou Center, Level `1, Office Lobby, China
Commissioned by Suzhou Centre, ‘Illuminations in the Key of Bloom’ is the largest painting completed by Ian Woo. Inspired by the seasonal bloom and cycle of nature, opposites co-exist in the painting – dark and light; structured and organic; warmth and cool; horizontal and vertical; translucent and solid. The intervening of these elements suggests the idea of metamorphosis within the passage of time, signifying growth and adaptation.
