Kuo-Jen Chen - Jewelry Gallery


#1

Taipei, Taiwan

The natural richness of the nature reminds us that the vastness of the world in which we live transcends the human imagination, just as English poet William Blake once wrote "to see a heaven in a wild flower". Through the 100 works on display at the "Floral Tranquility 2011" exhibition I search for my own interpretations of flower shapes and vases against an abstract landscape, in the hope of finding the perfect match between human sentiment and nature, an aesthetic that is at once both self demonstrating joy, pleasure and amusement. At the same time, this work also seeks to realize a creative philosophy based on "a natural sense of being at ease" as observed and experienced by the individual.
