In the “Parallel Journeys in Space and Time” exhibition, Artspace K invited renowned artists Li Wei Han Rosanna and Yeung Yuk Kan to present their works. Living in two cities, with different time zones and lifestyles, they both focus on doing one thing, that is ceramic. Ceramic has become the common interest that bridged the two of them. On the path of ceramic creation, they demonstrated their distinctive characters and they both admired and cherished each other.
Li applies grogged clay to depict people going about their daily lives, for instance, a beach scene. The inspiration comes from the epidemic restrictions when there were very few people on the beach. Among them, the lone walkers attracted her attention. The ceramic figurines of plump women and men are all endowed with a nimble grace and carefree spirit. Their faces are filled with vivid expressions to exude the charm of a relaxed state of mind. While Yeung uses thin and translucent white porcelain and paints on the flowing and plain bisque. The transparent and thin layer of color and sparse lines create a sense of void and fullness, of seemingly far and yet close in contrast to the blankness on the white porcelain. Her works are in western forms, blended naturally with eastern ink techniques. The tranquility, serenity and vastness are the unique characteristics embedded in her works.
Works from the two ceramic artists carry their own strengths in terms of appearance and subject matter. While they are in different spaces and times, they connect the two worlds with their own creative imaginations. Li’s work “At a Twist of Fate – His Kite Has Gone Astray” and Yeung’s “Wishing Cloud” formed the theme of the exhibition and began a dialogue between time and space. The simple clay figurines versus the abstract space, between the sky and the land, leaving a message that although they are in different spaces making their own creations, they can always build a connection.
