Hong Drone III caption 1
Hong Drone III (2017) by Pako Campo.
Hong Drone III arises from an aerial observation of Hong Kong. It is the last part of Hong Drone series. The series Hong Drone is an exercise of mixing of two opposite things, abstraction and figuration. This one can be chosen as the most figurative 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 III was exhibited in Artexpo New York 2018.
The first part was published on Friday. Check the blog page to see it complete!
