The Gold Leaf

Co-created by artists Dominic Lam and Fabrizio Giacomelli, The

Golden Leaf originated through celebration of the Sino-Italian

millennial friendship, honoring peace and harmony. The artwork

was originally due to be displayed during the exhibition at the Venice

Biennale 2019; however, one month prior to the opening, Venice was

tragically hit by the worst storm in 53 years, damaging the city and this

very art exposition. Recognising the need to overcome the reality of

climate change, the painting was immediately restored and exhibited

in Venice symbolizing the re-opening of the city as a new beginning.

The Golden Leaf emerged out of two unique techniques. Through

Giacomelli’s ‘Analog-Noise’ process, involving use of analogue

cameras combined with his proprietary physical flue filter to shredder

the light, as well as Dr. Lam’s invention of the Chromoskedasic

painting process that generates a wide spectrum of colours without

the use of pigments or dye. In this manner, Lam also invented a novel

painting medium, which is very rare in the history of art. The result is

an amazing spectrum of visual effects that recreate impressionistic

style through photography..
