Esta obra aborda la idea de la representación utilizando un contexto racional con un ideograma de la escritura china y un autorretrato fotográfico. La obra hace un autorretrato no figurativo sobre un fondo figurativo por excelencia (el retrato fotográfico). Me sirvo de la capacidad que tiene el símbolo de exteriorizar una idea de manera abstracta, legible gracias a la convención social que es la escritura, es un pictograma con significado propio; y a la vez utilizo la contundencia figurativa de la fotografía para crear una yuxtaposición en el leguaje visual de la dualidad abstracción/figuración.

Al construir con estos elementos el símbolo pasa a ser protagonista en la lectura de la obra: el ideograma de mi nombre es la representación gráfica no solo de la palabra Fung, sino también de la idea de mi identidad personal. Pero al estar todo esto creado con el elemento de la imagen mía como fondo se vuelve una doble representación: tanto abstracta como figurativa, un autorretrato abstracto sobre fondo figurativo, un retrato completo o una representación absurda.

This piece deals with the idea of representation using the rational context through a chinese ideogram and a photographic portrait. The piece makes a non figurative self-portrait over a figurative background by excellence – the photographic portrait. I use the capacity that the symbol has to extern and idea in an abstract manner, legible thanks to the social convention that is writing, it is a pictogram with its own meaning; and at the same time I use the figurative forcefulness of photography to create a juxtaposition in the visual language of the duality between abstraction/figuration .

 Since the piece is constructed with these elements the symbol becomes the main character in the reading of this piece: the ideogram of my name is the graphic representation not only of the word ‘Fung’, but also the idea of my personal identity. And while all of this is created with the element of my image as a background it becomes a double representation: as abstract as it is figurative, an abstract self portrait over a figurative background, a complete portrait or an absurd representation.
