Hong Kong Inspired Works

This painting captures the very special, intimate bond that can exist between two or more girlfriends. They live in the capitals of Asia and travel frequently to meet up in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Saigon or Singapore. They are distinctly different, yet because they spend so much time together they sub-consciously develop an alignment in their look and style. Being successful and complex girls they do differ in temperament and don’t always get along, hence the cat and dog. The nonchalant cigarette stands for independence and power.

Rumour has it – 150 x 100 x 5cm

Girlfriends having after dinner drinks in one of the elegant high rise clubs in the city.  They meet frequently to touch base on the latest gossip at work, at home or in their circle of friends.  In our fast paced cities rumours come and go equally fast.  A drama at home, a scandal in a friends marriage, an intrigue at the office.  No matter how serious the rumour is it will only last as long as the next rumour takes over.  Rumours have great entertaining value.  The best ones are kept to share over drinks after dinner. The recurring theme of the golden earring is the reflection of two contradicting worlds: The introvert “Circle of eternal happiness” and extrovert material world of More is Better.

Shoe Diet – 100 x 100 x 5cm

Shoe Diet came about after hearing of yet another popular diet in Hong Kong.  Successful women put endless stress on their appearance and especially their waistline.  To compensate for a drastic food regime nothing seems better than the latest pair of Giuseppe Zanotti for breakfast, Jimmy Choo’s for lunch and Christian Louboutin to dine.  Of course hair, make-up and dress are carefully selected to match.

The recurring theme of the golden earring is the reflection of two contradicting worlds: The introvert “Circle of eternal happiness” and extrovert material world of More is Better.

This is the largest painting of the “COBRA by Fox Daniels” exhibition, represents the expat tai-tais who put their careers on hold to join their husbands in Hong Kong.  They are in charge of looking after the social life of their successful husbands, and rearing the children.  Status is of great concern and expressed by jeweler and large numbers of domestic servants in their home. The pressure here lies with keeping at bay the predatory beauties circling around their husbands whilst ensuring the children are happy in their new environment.
