CONCEPT OF ARTWORK

Featuring falling flowers over the tiger, the painted florals feature various species of endangered and rare flowers as a reminder to preserve the remaining landscapes for the protected flora and fauna. Once they are extinct we would no longer be able to enjoy their beauty.

ARTIST'S QUOTE:

“Tigers have been an important and precious part of the ecosystem. They have been violently exploited and abused; I thought it was important to contribute what I can as an artist when I have the opportunity.”

雕塑構思:

本作的設計有如花朵飄落在老虎身上,當中的各種花朵都是瀕臨絕種的稀有品種,藉此提醒觀眾要保護僅餘的自然地區,以保存這些花卉和動物。假如這些物種絕種,我們就無法再欣賞到其美態。

藝術家感言:

「老虎是生態系統中重要而珍貴的一環。過去牠們一直被粗暴地虐待和剝削。作為一個藝術家,我認為我應該趁有機會時盡量貢獻所能。」
