Hong Yi Zhuang

Born in China, but now a resident of the Netherlands, it’s no surprise the image of the flower has become the focus of Hong Yi Zhuang (1962-). His well known “flower beds” are made from delicately painted pieces of rice paper. Unfortunately, it was another type of paper, paperwork, that had an influence.

After sitting in customs for an extended period, in hot and humid conditions, the Styrofoam used in packing the work formed an imprint along the sides. Also, tiny balls of Styrofoam had made their way into the flowers.
