Gold, from Richard Heeps 2016 series The Streets of Hong Kong. The idea for the series was how he could represent the intrinsic nature of Hong Kong, the idea of layers and light. Through most of the work there is a linear pattern alongside a raw distressed quality with a pop of Pop Art.
Here employing a form of visual alchemy through the medium of photography and his chemical darkroom, this everyday symbol, blown up, the flash hits it making the base colour zing, the character 'Gold' creates a piece of art.
