Overlooking the geological patterns and natural ecology in the East Rift Valley, embraced by the two mountain ranges, the plants and flowers I consider may not be true flowers after all, but the “window grilles” known to us since childhood. The Taiwanese vintage object – Window Grilles – as the soul for departure.
The brand abbreviation, AC, is taken for the continuous patterns in four directions to play with the classical window grille pattern of begonia such is the visionary flower in the eyes of ANGUS CHIANG.
From the famous white clouds, blue sky, mountains, streams, and the ocean of tawny daylily in the East Rift Valley, two colors that gave birth to the landscape are extracted – sky blue and golden orange, fused and transformed into the most distinctive saturated hues of ANGUS CHIANG.
The contours of clothing capture the landscapes of streams, valley, waterfalls, hot springs, alluvial fans, faults born from the three drainage systems. With the interwoven style of wool embroidery, combined with glass beads and acrylic engraving, in such a diversified landscape, the futuristic flower germinates and grows.
