Artwork Description

Also known as Huun - the Mayan word for paper as well as the tree used in papermaking for hundreds of years. The ancient practice disappeared completely in Yucatan until 1985 when Project Huun of sustainable community development was initiated. This paper today is made by Maya-Yucatec artisans who combine Washi techniques with the ancient Mayan techniques. Huun paper is 100% alfa-cellulose of select fibers of plants such as Sanseviera (Mother-in-law's Tongue) and Cattail. Both are renewable, the use of which does no damage to the environment.

I was captivated by Monet's impressionist paintings after the exhibition at NGV a few years ago. After discovering a style of photography that can turn an image to look like a painting, I wanted to put people as a subject into my images just like the impressionist paintings. I started looking for inspirations, Monet and Banksy came to mind: A lady carrying a red umbrella on a bridge, and do it in an impressionistic style. The dreamy look of the picture from LensBaby, the reflection on the pond under the bridge enhances the impressionistic look: A lady walking on a bridge on a summer day with a gentle and pleasant breeze.
