Poster, China Image, 2004
This poster, the earliest example of He’s work to be added to Cooper Hewitt’s collection, was designed for the Taiwan Poster Design Association. The poster features the two Chinese characters that together translate as "China." The characters were modelled in ceramic by artist Sonny Kim, and painted to recall the iconic blue and white floral pattern associated with the country. He staged these two ceramic models against a bough of white cherry blossoms.
