Solo exhibition on the Harbour in Hong Kong. Six of my hyper-realistic sculptures will be exhibited in and around a 3D pool filled with a little water to enhance the realistic effect. Some of the sculptures will be bronze and a monumental size such as my 16' The Golden Mean sculpture of a diver.
The idea is to bring fine art and sculpture o the public and give them an added awareness of art and western culture.
All sculptres were made in my NY studio and shipped to Hong Kong. I worked with a design team located in Hong Kong, to create the setting and large interactive swimming pool on the harbor next to the star ferry. It took 46 installers one evening to install all six pieces. The installation had to take place in the night since in the day, thousands of people walk in that area on their way to the star ferry and to the Marco Polo Hotel and the Harbour City Shopping Mall.
This is the first time sculpture a d 3D design of an interactive swimming pool, coupled with water and three of my sculptures were shown in Hong Kong. This installation was never been exhibited anywhere else in the world until this exhibition. The technology of interactive water projected into a swimming pool with not water, and sculptures in the pool made to look like they were floating, were one of the chalanges the design team and myself faced.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
