Two cyphers in Chinese heritage, the Ox and the Scholar Rock emanate as one in this symbolic ‘surge of strength and knowledge’ in Laurens Tan’s new Ox lantern.
About the artist
Laurens Tan lives and works in Wollongong, Beijing and Las Vegas, from where he has just returned. He has a year-long curated solo exhibition at the Sahara West Library (ex- Las Vegas Art Museum) and his work has just been acquired by the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.
About the zodiac animal
Loyal, reliable and strong, the determined Ox is always diligent.
The Lunar Lanterns will be lit from dusk each evening, but are just as impressive by day.
