About the artwork

Central Hong Kong is a scintillating mass of glittering glass skyscrapers, given the fact that there was limited land area which led to a need to build upwards. The trendy shopping neighbourhood boasts a propagation of malls linked by covered walkways that ferry the frenzy of shoppers to and fro to immerse themselves in the throes of consumption. Hong Sek Chern depicts the cascade of glass walkways, locked in connectedness, in her characteristic style.
