Throughout her experience as a traveling artist, Lixian Cai found immense interest in how buildings and portions of cities could be viewed in the form of a reflection. The unique vantage point inspired Lixian so much, that she decided to make a series of work all based on mirrored imagery in different parts of the world.
Her "City Mirror" series depicts the deformation in landmark buildings throughout the world. Overtime landmarks are surpassed with larger towers being built every year. This makes many buildings insignificance overtime as technology constantly evolves. The paintings are created as a commemorative plaque to honor their existence while still notable.
This particular piece is a reflective view of the Willis Tower in Chicago.
In pursuit of artistic inspiration, artist Lixian Cai has spent the past few decades traveling extensively throughout Asia, Europe, and most recently the U.S. The artwork she creates today is inspired by the culture documented from each new place she visits.
While immersing herself in new surroundings, Lixian takes photos of anything that peaks her interest. Her personal photography is later revisited, then blended together with incredible detail to create each one of her works. Some of her favorite subjects include cityscapes viewed from reflection, architecture reimagined, and beauty found in simplicity.
