Presentation of new multi-media art project created by Sharon Cook, Lien Chao and Patrick Haynes
From the Eagle’s Eyes was created by two inter-art artists, Sharon Cook and Lien Chao; digital interpretation and production of the original music by Patrick Haynes.
This new multi-media art project presents a wider inter-disciplinary exploration of traditional, classical art forms, including Chinese brush painting, oil painting, bilingual poetry, original music for piano, paper-cutting art, and landscape photography. The intermingling process of the art forms has produced a series of contemporary, experimental, artistic fusions.
All fusions resulted from inter-art blending, leading the artists and hopefully, the audience, to discover new metaphysical spaces, while boundaries of the traditional art forms have been crossed. Philosophical and conceptual exploration coincides with the artistic exploration and hence, the fusions.
