“Flower”, is a radical of Chinese Character, a common symbol in daily life and also Poon Kan Chi 's crucial creative elements.
Poon’s process of creating a series of flower paintings was started purely for personal attraction towards flowers. It later developed into an exploration of memories associated with the symbol “Flower”.
To Poon, flowers’ repetitive patterns and color collage are natural education of visual aesthetics and they are also senses of familiarity and traces for identity. Painting frame-like shapes on the canvas, they become entrances to audiences’ private spaces, to reminisce and ponder the uncertainty of personal identity.
