Eternal Line

11-12F|Ceramic 2017


Curved lines are applied to sketch out the changeful forms of nature. They extend randomly and rhythmically to signify all things moving, running, and flying in the infinite universe.

The work captures the expanse of an undulating horizon and miniaturizes huge forms such as mountains, oceans and clouds. The grainy surface texture represents time and the myriad stories that have accumulated on this Mother Earth. The inverted size relative to our own gives the viewer an exploratory feeling like a giant toying with the world to check it out.
