  • Catalogue Essay

    From the Ikhor collection, signifying bloodline and eternity. In Greek mythology, Ikhor represents the blood of gods and immortals. He believes the colour red is powerful and associated with strong emotions such as love, passion, sex and excitement. Elements of red often appears in this collection. Butterfly is associated with human souls in ancient Greek. The intricate openwork pattern on the butterfly mimics burning flames, signifying passion and freedom. This is also a metaphor along the lines of rebirth, eternity and spiritual transformation.

    「Ikhor」系列寓意著血緣與永恆。在希臘神話中,Ikhor代表著諸神之血。他認為紅色是有力量的,且與強烈的情感息息相關,如愛、激情、性與興奮。紅色乃該系列中常出現的元素。古希臘時期,蝴蝶是人類靈魂的代指。蝴蝶上複雜的鏤空圖案宛若燃燒的火焰,寓意激情與自由。這亦是對重生、永恆與靈性升華逐一演變的隱喻。
