Fang Tong

A multiplicity of possible meanings simmer beneath the surface of this seemingly banal image of a young woman diving into a swimming pool while a boy watches from the sidelines. A teenage crush on the girl next door? Or a bored child stuck waiting for his older sister to finish swimming so he can get home to his videogames? The artist sets the scene, the viewer provides the storyline. The deserted pool deck provides a surreal backdrop for a drama, or a mystery...you decide.
