Ten Days in the Mountain
An artist, educator and art historian, Eric Wear was educated as a conceptual artist in America, Japan and England (a Rhodes Scholar). Eric Wear first savours the smell of mown lawns, then natto, and the play of words and images that has its many small currents in modern European life. Now settled in Hong Kong, he has spent more than a decade exploring the submerged continent of pre-modern Chinese taste. Eric was previously Associate Head of the School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He has three young daughters.
