FOUR WINDS The solo show of Peter Han Dec 9 2021
Guardians of the four cardinal directions, represented by creatures appearing in the Chinese constellation; The Four Winds belong to classical Asian mythology that encompass a larger sphere of influence. The East Asian Sinosphere has many countries influenced by Chinese culture. This collection of work pulls similarly from that deep generational expanse of stories, art, religion, inventions, and social structures.
Much of this inspiration is funneled into developing a lore for the character, The Blacksmith, and his adventures through Asia. The Four Winds act as the great deities and fighters for said story and represent the pillars of this collection.
