Conjugation : Shanghai Metro #5 (2017)
58 x 48 x 5.5 cm
HMA on Canvas
This is #5 (right) of the Shanghai Metro. It is a light rail line.
In Conjugation : Shanghai, I discuss in these works my experience with the Shanghai Metro system while completing my artist residency at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel.
The 14 lines were created by tracing the different metro lines using layers upon layers of hot melt adhesive (HMA). Each piece is encased in an acrylic frame.
Due to oxidation, the material, HMA, turns slightly yellow over time.
Last photo is line #7 and line #5 together.
