Drawing inspiration from pioneering female abstract artist, Hilma af Klint, and her spiritual and visual study of the four ages of man, Five Phases delves into the spiritual realm from an Eastern perspective. Through a digital and spatial interpretation, the work seeks to embrace the essence of Chinese mythology and practices. By intertwining the concepts of Wuxing, Yin and Yang, and the Red Thread of Fate, Five Phases seeks to symbolise the intrinsic connection and mutual reliance between life, phenomena and destiny. A highly practiced Chinese philosophy, Wuxing (五行), often translated to "five phases", represents the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Mars and Venus. This piece aims to embody the pursuit of harmony and equilibrium of Wuxing through the interplay of water, earth, metal, wood, and fire elements.
