Hong Drone II caption 1
Hong Drone II (2017) by Pako Campo.
Hong Drone II arises from an aerial observation of Hong Kong. It is the transitional part of Hong Drone series, a travel who goes from abstraction to figuration. So it can be chosen as the most balanced piece of this series.
This series fits within the Cityscapes collection, in which I have been working for several years. In Cityscapes, I take saturated and contaminated cities, places that have become anodyne and overcrowded over the years, and I do a make-up work over them with vivid colors.
Color is used here as a symbol of beauty and diversity, in opposition to the functionality and consistency of today’s big cities.
Hong Drone II was exhibited in Artexpo New York 2018.
