Whispers of Clay
The joyful feeling was just like receiving the special gift from God when Caves Art Center delivering the message of solo exhibition invitation last Christmas holiday. It is an honour in particular, to a person like me, just retired and seeking for third life. When I think of how to present the new works to meet this new journey, what an amazing thing, the song ‘Listen Quietly’ came to mind and lasted for a while. After many times of praying and seeking, the decision was clear to portray this exhibition around the subject of “listening”. The new works contain ‘Call of the Earth’, ‘Embrace Forest’, ‘Seed Forest’, ‘Hearing Sound of Wave’, ‘Whispers of the Clouds’, ‘I Have Big Ears’, ‘Ensemble of Life’….and so forth.
The interaction and experience with clay is abundant during the entire process of creation, that situation is interesting like ‘painting on the clay’. The creator needs time to sculpt and work with hands, there is no rush between carving and sculpture. One needs to listen to clay and observe when to add, when to subtract or to modify. The performance of clay varies individually. The changes of time, humidity and temperature all require patience and careful observation. Cooperation with clay can then be successfully completed.
The perimeter of this solo exhibition tries to break through the framework of illustrations, may all can embrace nature. This show hopes to accompany you into nature and listen carefully that is being whispered between heaven and earth. Although you and I are very different, we still share the same love and resources from heaven and earth. May we accept each other, support each other and always rejoice in our hearts.
