103 x 108 x 5cm (framed)
95 x 100cm (unframed)

Based upon Carpaccio’s 'Healing of the Possessed Man' (1496), from the Accademia Gallery in Venice, 'The Lion & The Phoenix' was created in March 2020, during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The left side of the composition is a photomontage of Venice, and the right side is crafted from photos of Fenghuang (Phoenix Ancient Town) in Hunan Province, often cited as the ‘Venice of the East’. Due to the global pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, an empty setting is presented, devoid of people. The title of the piece refers to the symbol of Venice, the Lion, and the symbol of Fenghuang, the Phoenix, the latter offering a suggestion of hope, that, just like the immortal mythological bird that cyclically regenerates, so we too will re-emerge from this challenging period.
