China in a Box

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

While looking for art supplies during a visit to Beijing, I came across a number of beautiful boxes intended merely to hold a customer's purchase. Each box itself seemed to me a work of art. This painting depicts several of the boxes, together with a set of wood-handled paint brushes (and a silk scarf I bought on the same trip).

If she knew how beautiful love is, she would already put it in a box, seal, and preserve it.

So she could smell it whenever she wants. Kusumastuti
