This series of artworks, simply titled “Waves”, combine torn paper and stylized line drawings of waves to create a mixed media paper collage. Abstract artist Dana Shek creates semi-abstract compositions of land and sea with hand drawn waves on Chinese and Japanese papers. The series is created in rich tone on tone calm blues, warm hues of reds and classic, monotone black, greys and whites.
This series was commissioned for a hotel project. We worked with an art consultant who required abstract artwork for an interior that was sleek, modern and minimalist. Following the design brief requirements, these collages were custom created in deep purple tones and mauve colours for the suites of the Okura Hotel, Macau.
