If you have been following updates on Xiang Yang’s Instagram feed  you will have seen a brilliant transformation right before your eyes.

What began as the epic Modern Tempo (below) was slowly and then rather quickly transformed into its present incarnation, Charming Dream.

The new work could not be any more different from the original.

Gone are the dark, almost menacing hues, replaced by a new land of hope and dreams.

Indeed it brings to mind certain spiritual aspects of Australia’s Aboriginal Dreamline or The Dreaming.

Here is a place that is the centre of the dreaming, a spiritual retreat as it were, replete with peace and comfort and songlines that lead to another world.

It is an island, but still part of the greater world, where anything is possible, where dreams really do come true.
