Folk Tales from Australia

Two imaginary characters, Lee Fong, a Chinese gold seeker from the 1860s and his great grandson Les, an Aussie accented market gardener from the 1950s had adventures on ‘the New Gold Mountain’ aka Australia. As well as depicting the tenacity of the Chinese spirit in Australia the paintings also work with aesthetic ideas of yin yang and the void, as well as Western expressionism.
