Oliver Chun Xu’s series is inspired by the Seigaiha motif. Originally used to depict the sea on ancient Chinese maps; it was then adopted by Japanese for use as patterns. Seigaiha is a Japanese word pronounced ‘Seikaiha’ (青海波); the word literally means big sea waves. As a traditional Japanese pattern, it appears on Japanese ceramic cookware, fabric and wallpaper and symbolises good fortune and happiness. Oliver has created his own patterns by inventing a system of rules. All the curves are free, not in the sense of departing, but finding each other, holding onto each other, being able to feel and move in relation to each other. The structures are created by the movements of these curves.
