The Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa works with themes of nature on a grand scale. His large sculptural installations are striking. In this case Lotus Flower, is a huge flower made of red cloth on a large scale. In Asian cultures, the lotus represents purity and grace and Choi combines image with the color red, a color most associated with good fortune and vitality. Lotus Flower shows us vibrant color, skillfully elaborated petals and an impressive size merging architectural space and nature. What really draws attention are its moving petals that give life to sculpture. This installation has traveled the world, reflecting both nature and life in an object flowing brilliantly.
