Full Moon Over Upper Cheung Sha Beach
By Anat Givon, The Anat Givon Small Print Collection
This slightly haunting seaside landscape at night appears as much an impressionist painting as a photograph of Lower Cheung Sha Beach. A clear Summer, full moon is dreamily reflected in a calm South China Sea. The beautifully silhouetted, restful pines in the foreground are slightly eerily detracted from by distant lights that remind the viewer of ever-present animation behind even the most serene of scenes.
Light seems to be scratched through a classic coastline painting creating a transfixing juxtaposition of a natural treeline scene that transports the viewer beyond this locale, while being pulled back to South Lantau even as the eye is drawn out to sea.
