Balance, Practice, Do
"Balance, Practice, Do"
Mixed media on found picture frames
52 x 20inches (133 x 50cm)
This piece was created at the Jardin Orange Residency in Shenzhen, China.
I found a stack of old picture frames in an abandoned office building in The Tanglang neighborhood of Shenzhen. The seemed to be awards for employees of what seemed to be a medical office.
I used the frames to create the shape of this piece. I made this over a few days while waiting for materials to arrive. I had a lot of time on my hands so I started practicing writing Chinese. For 2 days I wrote the same 3 words, balance, practice, do. Over and over again I wrote these 3 words across this piece until I was able to write it correctly and from memory.
