Sculpture is a three-dimensional artistic creation. In order for people to have different visualization from different angles, the production process consists of two or more elements from concepts of different angles mixing together. In 1997, I came to Italy, a country of art, and lived there for 15 years. Call it fate or karma, I arrived a small town called Carrara under the Alps. It is a world-famous place for being rich in marble. Many of the historic master artists have sought creative inspirations there. I remember upon getting off the train, the first thing I saw was this white head of towering mountains. I initially thought it was snow that covered the mountains but discovered they were exposed marble veins due to the excavation of the white marble. I fell deeply in love with the place from that moment on; silently made a promise to myself that I will be using beautiful Carrara marble in my sculptures.
The three series of creation are based on humans as the starting point, combining people and the simple things surrounding them to interpret the meaning of life. During my creative process, I prefer to think about the forms of each different series while holding my chisel, slowly releasing the soul of the stone as if I’m dialoguing with different people simultaneously. All of these three series of sculptures were created after moving back to Taiwan. The pillow series, seashell series, and the seed series are all easily obtained and readily available elements that I aspired to integrate with the human body. With the human as the main focus, my creative starting point is by using other elements to draw out the sculptures’ deep connotations. Being able to preserve simple thoughts has always been the core of my creations. When a creative thought emerges in my head, not letting other thoughts interfere, is rather crucial in avoiding a potential abundance of imagination.
