Space - Time Dialogue 1

21F Hallway|Ceramic 30x30x25cm 2017

The work depicts all of the artist’s influences. The surface texture is a record of the process of creation. The marks left by the tools along with the texture and colors faithfully reflect the artist’s feelings about forms. The techniques are spontaneous and give a feeling of sad beauty arising from a humble respect for nature. While the craftsmanship may appear uninhibited, it is in fact precisely controlled—a reflection of the Taoist concept of acting without action.

Time is a continuous series of instances that form an infinite space and memory is our ability to shape time.

The hand-done impressions, line cutting, inlaying, stacking, and so forth on each unit symbolize the way our lives are marked by different acts and experiences.

The fragile ceramic scroll with its suggestion of culture and language represents the temporal axis. It is a jumping-off point for us to move from this plane to the next. The travel is two-way. The two planes may run parallel in time or form a three-dimensional Mobius Strip. It is hoped that this work will enable the viewer to sense the relationship between vision and spatial memory as a peaceful, holistic coexistence.
