Takes inspiration from the Flemish painter Lucas van Valckenborch’s Tower of Babel (1595), whilst also paying homage to traditional Chinese painting techniques and compositional devices, exemplified in the shading of the distant mountains and the inclusion of numerous pathways to aid the traveller on a journey from the foreground to the top of the tower. The ‘Tower of Babel’ is a compelling motif with which to portray a city from a contemporary perspective. The construction allows for multiple viewpoints and layers of history to be represented in a single structure.
