At the Forbidden City, Beijing, China


男人   女人    孩子

Man, Woman & Child

These are expressionist works of ancestral Chinese characters dating back 5,000 years to the early history of China. “I want to capture the essence of China through the history and the reason China is so cool”, Patrick Otis Cox.

The forms are expressionist paintings of the ancient and original Chinese writing characters. The drawing technique includes ancient folklore and superstition.

The style of painting is Neo Expressionism. The spirited use of color reflects the metaphysical energy surrounding the figures. The diamond shape connecting the father and mother demonstrates a permanent union where the smaller connection with the child shows a future separation.
