About the Artwork
Jun T. Lai created Bloom Paradise to symbolize hope and love. The artist’s intention was to bring greater positivity into the pandemic stricken world and release healing energy. This artwork reflects the contemporary global cultural value of diversity and heterogeneity.
The work is composed of the “Flower of Hope,” the “Flower of the Sky,” and the “Flower of Life” – a transformation of the spirit and metaphor of a lotus into a three-dimensional sculpture. From pollution to purification, from death to regeneration, the lotus reveals nature’s life cycle.
The bright and colorful flowers call to an imaginative world, leading the visitor into a fantasy wonderland. Through this work, the artist hopes to bring positive energy and joy, a gift of life, to everyone.
Bloom Paradise is featured with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan and Cultural Division at the Taipei Representative Office in the UK.
