"Right Here" at sand painter's fingertips
"Right Here," a song sung by Han Lei withth e lyrics mentioning many Wuhan landmarks has become a recent hit in local social networking platforms. Among many adapted editions, a sandpainting version of "Right Here" by Zhou Lian is remarkably eye-catching.
Accompanied withth e powerful voice of Han Lei, landmarks in the city are animated in the sandpaintings. Marathoners running down from the Yellow Crane Tower, the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, Wuhan Railway Station, 1911 Revolution Square, Hubu Alley, the former Jianghan Customs Building, East Lake, and Optics Valley Future City are all captured in this sandpainting show.
Wuhan-related themes have taken up most of Zhou's work in recent years. Her works are usually based on the photographs of Wuhan she has shot or collected. She said that the lyrics of "Right Here" inspired this version of "Right Here." Her next ambition will be another sand-painting interpretation of the song, but following the genre of traditional Chinese paintings.
