For centuries, the fan has been a well-known accessory that has crossed countries and eras. Australian artist Sarah Park has paid tribute to them in a series entitled “Finding Beauty”. This series is composed of realistic oil paintings in which subjects hold the object, unfolded. The shadow of the latter creates, on the skin of the one who holds it, drawings with worked motives. Beyond the practical aspect that it can represent, the fan becomes here a delicate object to contemplate and to rediscover.
