2015.5.4 于墨尔本

 

维多利亚州立美术馆联合广场分馆一楼

角落里,

StArt Up: Top Arts 2015

维州高中美术生的优秀作品展

 

第22年,

这个展览比我,历史更悠久。

 

艺术在这儿

褪去了高深莫测的面具,

丢弃了居高临下的姿态,

清新,

感人。

 

思想轻盈,

尚未背上包袱。

青少年们怀抱纯真

与启蒙之光,

对生活

迁移,加工,呈现。

 

艺术并不需要华丽的名号,

沉重的负担:

倘若我们在自己身上都找不到意义,

就不要妄想在别人的艺术作品中找到。

 

艺术的意义

正如生活的意义,

只属于创作者

与感同身受者。

 

是年轻而不受束缚的心灵和头脑 给了艺术希望,

愿他们始终如一。

        Ideas behind the work:

        "This year in Studio Arts I was interested in exploring texture, and in particular expressive textures that generated an emotive response in the viewer, as well as me personally. For this reason my attention was drawn to fresh sprouts, such as those sprouting in the kitchen for use in cooking, as they were full of life yet also had a sense of vulnerability to them, and their life cycles were so fleeting. I wished to capture this in a way that an emotive response would be generated in the viewer, and I wished to create a work that would captivate others, in part due to its intangibility and impermanence. Furthermore, I wanted to link this vulnerability with human emotions, so I decided to create an article of clothing, a basic dress on which the fleeting life of sprouts would be presented. In this way a juxtaposition was created with the intangibility of sprouts and the corporeal nature of the body which one associates with a dress."
