Tangerines and oranges are one of these auspicious Chinese New Year symbols.
Chinese is associating the gift of orange and tangerine as having an abundance of happiness and prosperity.
The bright orange color of the fruits also symbolizes 'gold', hence it has an auspicious meaning to bring in good luck and wealth.
As kids, we present 2 oranges to the adults as good wishes and the adults in turn give us little red packets containing cash. So you can see why oranges are always welcome in my corner.
Susan Goh a self taught artist was born and raised in Singapore and currently resides in Arizona with her husband Bill and four wonderful dogs. Susan's Chinese name is 吴 思 宇 (Goh/Wu Si Yi) literately means thinking of the universe or cosmos thinker which is what she is like when she is painting. For most of her life, she was caught up in the fast paced City-State lifestyle of her home in Singapore and then later traveling the world with her husband for his work. Now her paintings reflect a culmination of all these experiences. Goh's art is a true reflection of her unique personality. She celebrates life with color and expression. Inspired by her ideas and things around her she transfers them to the canvas. Mixed media allows the artist to incorporate textures and depth producing energetic result which reflects her passion. She puts her creativity and thoughts onto the substrate translating it into something concrete and functional. Emotions translate into colors, colors into texture, texture into form and form into depth. The steadfast rhythm of energy and passion surround her as she paints - her playground registering yesterday, creating today and dreaming about tomorrow. When asked about her goal, Goh says: 'My vision is to share the beauty of art with the world. I believe that art brings people together regardless of race, language or religion - Art is a universal language spoken from the heart with the stroke of a brush.' Goh welcomes you to her playground and she is happy to share this joy and energy with you from her heart to yours. If you dream and believe you can......... you will.
