Stone, steel, silks, stains, syllables.
If asked, most of us would classify these are non-living. Yet, the artists in us are able to create movement, bring to life creations with these and other media.
I run/walk past this work almost daily: Chang Kuda (“carry horse” in Malay) by Chong Fah Cheong, It never fails to make me smile: brimming with play, laughter, wild exuberance!
Last week I visited Unhomed Belongings, an affecting & stimulating collection of artworks by Lucy Liu (United States) and Shubigi Rao (Singapore). These artists work in various media and creat works which moved me deeply. It is taking many many days to unpack my reactions & feelings. I am currently working on a poem which I hope will give voice to my still processing responses.
Does it take you a while to think/feel/respond to art (painting, sculpture, poetry, photography, etc)? What tools do you use to help you process?
