In this series of paintings, I want to examine the ideas of cultural memory in relations of culture and desires in the digital age by aware of the changes in surroundings. In my research paper, I describe a blurred image with black fragments accidentally appear on my laptop screen, which seemed to me to represent memory. My research interests included painting, photographic image and culture memory. The final painting series marries elements of history western landscape photography for the nineteenth century and Chinese landscape photography for the nineteenth century. I am looking not only at my achievements, but also at the broader implications of my experiences, as indicators of cultural shift in England, in terms of attitudes to, and relationships with China, its people and culture.
