Original: 100 x 100 cm | acrylic and airbrush on raw linen. Completed in 2023.
More than 600 hours were dedicated to creating Talisman #1.
As the purple bouquet takes shape and fills the space with colour, the intention behind Talisman #1 begins to unfold. It takes time to achieve your dreams, hence Talisman #1 is a visual embodiment to fuel aspirations and act as an empowering companion on our journey. Once the journey is complete, looking back on what was endured will be fulfilling.
This arrangement features Chinese wisteria for good luck and success, complemented by the positive energy of purple peonies, and grounded by African violets symbolizing devotion, faithfulness, and commitment. The use of the colour purple is also intentional. Purple is often associated with power, ambition, wealth, creativity, and pride.
The original Talisman #1 comes with one om (ॐ) turtle fulu (bujeok) talisman, uniquely hand-painted with grounded cinnabar for luck, prosperity, protection and success.
