A photographical interpretation of the magical, almost abstract flower paintings by the great Chinese painter Sanyu (1901-1966). The Homage à Sanyu series is inspired by the paintings of the Chinese – French artist Sanyu (or Chang Yu), who lived and worked in Paris in the early 20th century. In works from this series, Meeuws makes a photographic translation of Sanyu’s painting into a modern medium. He wants to translate Sanyu’s paintings photographically without destroying the atmosphere of those paintings.
