Design Description:

Flower, bird and taihu stone come together in a pinnacle of harmonious beauty. From up close, we see life; from far away, we see heaven and earth. These three elements each have their own time to shine. The taihu stone’s beauty comes from the incessant battering of waves across its lifetime; the red flowers are reborn every season; the bird passes life through the generations and symbolizes the inextinguishable of life. From different angles, the water weathered stone reveals a tranquil interior. From the front, a facade to withstand the elements; from the back, a scintillating display.

“A communal form” is an extension of Zhuang Zi’s saying that “all things and I are one”. The jiling bird in the sculpture is inspired by the famous Song painting “Red Knotweed and Aquatic Bird”. Entering the Song Dynasty where the idea that “all matter is connected as one” was further emphasized and observed through different angles, distances and times of day.

花、鳥、石三者,有各自的時間維度,從三者的和諧存在,能夠體悟生命的美好與稍縱即逝,與珍惜當下。鳥兒則傳遞生命,萬物生生不息,,紅花是四季的重生,太湖石經過了漫長歲月波浪的衝,內部沉靜透徹。作品從前面欣賞是大浪淘沙過後堅強的本心,從後看是對待生活如花似火的積極態度。從不同距離看,近看是生活,遠看為天地。

作品中的鳥是鹡鸰(jí líng),以宋徽宗趙佶的花鳥名作《紅蓼水禽圖》為原型,花、鳥、太湖石在這一刻的定格,是自然和諧統一的大美。作品設計運用書法與國畫中的留白,運用幾何菱形與大面積拋光的簡潔,對比太湖石的有機與立體視覺,是一件可以全角度欣賞,各面都有獨立美感的生動創作。

Beauty Lies Between Here and There

Traverse
the pure and transparent window
of spiritual fasting.
Approach all things
without preconception,
with tranquility,
with clarity,
and become one with all.

美在天地之間

穿過
透明澄澈的
心齋之窗
虛而待物
致靜
致明
物我相忘
