Texture, Gaze and Bady
Figure Sculpture entered China from Greece via India. It is not just an exchange of culture and art, but also an exchange of the gaze between you and me, West and East. When I look at this space-time, what is being projected is not only the angle from which I understand the world, but also the unreserved reflection of my image. Correspondingly, when you look at the time fragments I have stared at, are you not also looking at your own mirrored image?
Material, color, brushstroke, body, form, in which space-time do our gaze rest? Withdraw, approach, spin, linger, suspend, our actions transcend cognition, connecting the past and the present. We are tourists who travel across different time and space, watching the world based on their own experiences and preferences. Some people use the eye of observation to construct the perfection of seeing themselves outside of themselves once more. Some others use the eyes of observation to witness the creation of our past selves, time and time again. Marcel Proust wrote: …for my eyes color was sufficient, without warmth; my chest, on the other hand, was anxious for warmth and not for color. From the perfection image of ourselves that we created before, we see our thoughts, desires, and beauty.
