It's raw materials, known as "DA QI " (Great Lacquer) or "Sheng Qi" (Raw Lacquer) harken from the natural Toxicodendron vernicifluum (Chinese Lacquer tree)
Chinese artist Ms. Yu Hong presents an analysis of life in its various forms, stages, and relationships in her new exhibit, titled “The Energy Series - Boundless”. Using the ancient art of lacquer painting first developed in China and Japan, this series captures the cycle of life through traditionally Chinese motifs, instilling Ms. Yu Hong’s personal identity into the Life she depicts.
Trained in biology with a focus on traditional tea culture, Ms. Yu Hong’s work reflects her keen interest in biological sciences, from atoms, cells, and neurones to ecological relationships between human and animal.
