Future Garden 《未來花園》 | Looking Within the Shadows of the Red Sun 《在紅日的陰影中尋尋覓覓》

Jackson Café | 積遜咖啡廳

Come to the Jackson Café to discover two large murals, featuring the digital artwork of Eric Chan (aka eepmon)!

In Future Garden, eepmon provokes an emotional response synonymous with that evoked by nature. Take a moment to envisage the ambient sounds of the wind ruffling the forest leaves, juxtaposed with the darkest of evenings. Expand your awareness and sense of calm. Reflect and take a moment to return to serenity.

Looking Within the Shadows of the Red Sun is inspired by an artwork, originally painted by a friend of his great-grandfather, found in the artist’s childhood home. For this work here, eepmon drew out motifs such as oxen turning and tilling the soil, backdropped by a Chinese folding fan. To ‘peer into’ the red sun's shadows is a metaphor for the artists’ reconnection with his Chinese ancestry.

Open edition prints are available to purchase at the OAG Shop. A percentage of the sales go towards a charitable donation to the Chinese Unit - The Glebe Centre Longterm Care.


透過作品《未來花園》(Future Garden),eepmon喚起的情感,與大自然所誘發的相仿。欣賞作品時,不妨花點時間想象風吹拂森林樹葉的氛圍聲音,與夜間最幽暗的時間形成對比。擴展你的覺知和平靜感。反思並花點時間回歸寧靜。

《在紅日的陰影中尋尋覓覓》(Looking Within the Shadows of the Red Sun)的靈感,來自於藝術家兒時家中發現的一幅畫作,該作品由藝術家曾祖父的朋友繪製。而在本作品,eepmon以中國摺扇作為背景,描繪了牛隻翻土等的不同圖案。藝術家借「窺探」紅日的陰影,隱喻了自己與其華裔祖先的重新結連。
