We at Jia Moderne are absolutely in love with Lumamodern’s metal wall art.
”Simplicity. Joy. Permanence.”
Thomas Drake, artist and owner of Lumamodern, is inspired by the poetic and dramatic beauty of the Chinese symbol for love.
Drake uses the “Ai,” the traditional Chinese character for love (愛) which is based around the heart and home, and offering affection and emotion toward others.
Drake is fascinated by the contrast between western language, where words are not constructed based on visual ideas and Chinese calligraphy, an ancient and poetic language evolving from early pictographs and still in use today.
The symbol of love is an artistic expression and beautiful art form.
“Lumamodern art creates a sense of joy and simplicity through the selection of material, color, and form. Ancient calligraphy and iconic images are sculpted and powder coated onto metal, creating a sense of permanency and durability.”
The beauty and simplicity of this several thousand year old Chinese character, is part of the genesis of the Lumamodern’s art work.
The work is designed to be viewed in a contemporary space.
We suggest a beautiful outdoor living space or an entry way to one’s home.
Wishing you love and ”Simplicity. Joy. Permanence.” shared with a loved one on this Valentine’s Day.
