BIO

Anton Poon’s sculptures explore the concept of cultural transition through the metaphors of bridges, tunnels and the use of abstract modular forms. Poon developed this theme based on his journey and experience of leaving home as a young teen in Hong Kong to study in a foreign culture here in Australia. Poon sees his sculptures as gateways that allow him to share and communicate his ideas physically and visually among other artists and the general public.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

My sculptures explore the concept of cultural transition through the metaphors of bridges, tunnels and the use of abstract modular forms. I developed this theme based on my journey and experience of leaving home as a young teen in Hong Kong to study in a foreign culture here in Australia. I sees my sculptures as gateways that allow myself to share and communicate my ideas physically and visually among other artist and the general public. With the Sculpture, Anchor, I continue to question my identity and sense of belonging by sharing my sculptures as an international artist.
