Fine Art Asia Highlights
Erin Morrison’s coin series began with the artist’s pure interest in coins as a material curiosity.
For the past three years, the artist has focused her unique sculptural process of gypsumcast relief on early coins circulated in the United States before and shortly after its founding. As the artist moved to Hong Kong in the summer of 2019, in the midst of massive local happenings and later global pandemic, her motivations as to which coins to reproduce and which subjects to focus on began to shift.
Between studios and countries, and whilst in periods of isolation during the pandemic, she has been alternating her creative focus between the coin and palm series, each with a different personality.

Memories, preservation and the language of communication is the key idea in Son’s works and he thrives to express the importance preservation in his own way through his artworks.
The most obvious feature in Son’s style is his openess towards the use of different materials, techniques and forms, which later brought about a progressive change to producing relief paintings by using briquette ash, along with repeated ‘trial and error’ with the adoption of Hanji (Korean traditional paper) and mulberry paper, terra cotta, ceramics, rice straws and other mixed-media forms.
Through years of experimenting, Son developed diverse de-genre and convergent methodologies by combining figurativeness & abstraction, sculptures & paintings and paintings & ceramics.

The designer/artist duo’s creations are each an honest expression and reinterpretation of their physical surroundings, where nature in particular speaks to them given their Kiwi roots. Coupled with the unique contrasting natural, cultural, and industrial landscapes of Hong Kong, each piece of art is both a harmony and juxtaposition between what mother earth has to offer and the other oddities by human mind and hands.

The shadow is a methodological instrument to search for an ego and to find an answer to the most fundamental and essential question of human beings, “Who and what I am?”
No object without shadow can exist. Every form and shape of the world, whether it moves or not, is a substantive three-dimensional structure. However, shadows constantly return and revert from the plane to the three dimension in my sculptural works, of which the nature is three dimensional. It is because this attempt to substantialize immateriality to materiality is a way of searching for another ego.
