Double Happiness by Jacky Cheng

Double Happiness  2013

Acid-free 110gsm archival paper

45 x 45cm

This is a story passed down from my ancestors to my grandmother about compatibility. Although during her time, arranged marriages was the preferred method.

Double Happiness is my interpretation and celebration of my cultural background.
The two circular shapes intertwine and unite to form an infinity symbol ∞ as the red strip symbolizes good fortune and prosperity.

In Chinese macrocosmic symbology, the circle expresses the shape of heaven, with earth signified by a square, which represents the union between heaven and earth. The deeply significant yin yang symbol is circular, and thus speaks of encompassing the whole of duality with intent for unified balance.
