As a child, Wang Mo had always wondered what it looked like inside a honeycomb, and would imagine that in each of these hexagon structures, there would be rainbow-coloured honey dripping all over, forming a fairyland.
This work is a dedication to Wang Mo’s childhood intrigue on the mysteries and beauty of nature. Imaginary surreal landscapes are created in the honeycombs, inviting us to investigate an imaginary microscopic world within. The worlds are created by materials naturally colliding and reacting to one another, forming lakes, valleys, green patches, white clouds and many more.
For those who’d like a twist in a story, view the work under UV light to discover the enigmatic ‘silver lining’ or ‘beauty hidden behind the scenes’.
