Artwork Statement
I draw inspiration from underwater sculptures by Jason deClaires Taylor, who is known for installing sculptures in the ocean and letting the forces of nature transform them into spectacular living art. I want to elicit the imagination of a vibrant marine world. The colours and tactile textures were achieved by combining slips, stains, underglaze and glaze, and spontaneously dripping, splashing, dabbing the brush, and ‘dancing’ with the vessel while the glaze was still running. Traces of my ephemeral expressive action were encapsulated in physical forms. I juxtaposed positive elements with negative space. These layered visual features enhance the visual tension and evoke a sense of fluidity like ocean waves.
