Artwork Appreciation
LU Hsien-Ming uses urban landscapes to investigate development of cities and convey the detachment and isolation of modernization. Expecting‧Return Soon shows two old individuals wearing indifferent expressions, isolated from each other as they stand alone within their frames constructed using industrial steel. One of them holds prayer beads, while the other holds temple offerings. Senior citizens who have weathered the years are contrasted against the cold, unfeeling urban architecture, highlighting the isolation experienced by those living in high-tech urban environments as well as the contradictions arising from urban development. LU Hsien-Ming uses materials, colors, and structures to create a futuristic scene that highlights a mythical and fable-like atmosphere, and an epic yet alienated world of progress.
