Artist: James Chiew
Title: Sins hotel
Technique: Aluminum / reflection foil / details / mixed media / high gloss resin
“Sins Hotel” by James Chiew is an artwork that utilizes a combination of techniques, including aluminum, reflection foil, mixed media details, and a high-gloss resin finish. The artwork has a dimension of 200x180cm.
The artwork depicts a hotel with many windows, and in each one, it is possible to see female figures in striptease outfits, as if there was a party happening inside the hotel. The choice of the title “Sins Hotel” suggests a reflection on the morality and values of society, especially regarding sexuality and lust.
The mixed media technique used in the artwork, combining different materials and textures, can be seen as a representation of the complexity of human experiences and the environments we live in. The use of reflection foil can symbolize the idea that society often reflects and amplifies our own choices and behaviors.
The high-gloss resin finish can be interpreted as a search for perfection and the idealization of the image depicted in the artwork. Together, these techniques and elements create a provocative and intense artwork that challenges the viewer to reflect on their own beliefs and values.
