Rice, Border, Rights

Increasing and decreasing; adding and removing could be seen among these two paintings. Natural materials such as rice, wood and canvas,which display bold and warm characteristics among this work. The contrast between gold and white is shown through the opposing canvas, white bringing to life natural plain rice and gold representing the luxury given by the material life.

The initial seemingly perfect societal hierarchy provides a place for each person, however this organisation of humans sets out a clear dividing line which upon closer inspection forces each human, and in turn each grain of rice, to remain in their designated position without freedom for variation.

The frames indicate an appearance of well-organised, sugar-coated society hierarchy. Movement is at the forefront of this historical hierarchy, as such providing inspiration for the division and restricted movement of rice grains inside the white and gold rhombi.  Golden canvas indicates the luxurious outward appearance. The white canvas without any colour on it, it shows the unpretentious fabric with substantial soul from the golden rice. The ground part rice circle hints to the ideal utopia world. Ground rice demonstrates a pure, non- polluted group. The diamond-shape frame implies the features of social hierarchy: moveable, dynamic, changeable. However, the clear dividing border limits the movement from individual human/rice.
