ARTIST STATEMENT
In time alone, there are moments I perceive a strong connection, soul recognition and resonance to nature and other human beings. I recognise the feeling of being present in the moment and able to grasp what I did not notice before.

A clear day of quietness without any great ceremony. Sunlight softly falling through a linen curtain. I started to immerse my visions into details. Edges of wood beams, weaving lines on fabrics and fleeting shadows on the wall, all integrated into one until it lost sense of the space itself. I explored the inner depths of being alone and seeing things in an original way.

Through this series of mixed media artworks, I express the way being alone is for me. Solitude, which is different from loneliness, emerged as a strikingly visual entity as an aesthetic emotion. In my drawings and photos, I explored with charcoal and ink, clay and plaster, along with poetry to create a ‘spiritual landscape’ expressing a state of mind finding a harmonious place elevated from discordant reality and peacefully embracing one’s solitude in cognitive empathy.

一起孤單 Being Alone Together
李美蓮 Claire
2019年6月6日至7月1日
混合媒體繪畫 / 攝影 / 詩

開幕夜* 2019年6月6日 週四 下午5時至晚上8時
香港中環善慶街10號1樓 ( Yoga BamBam 樓上 )

藝術家陳述
有些時候,當我獨處時會感受到與他人強烈的感應聯繫,意會對大自然與人事物的感悟知乎。我認識到當下存在的感覺並貼近我以前沒有注意到的東西。

一個安靜的下午。陽光輕輕地落在麻布窗簾上。我開始沉浸在細節之中。木樑的邊緣,織物上的編織線和牆上的短暫陰影,相互融為一體,直到失去了對空間的知覺。我探索獨處的內心深處,學習以原始的方式看待事物。

通過這一系列的混合媒體藝術作品,表達了對我而言獨處的視覺體驗。孤獨呈現出一個引人注目的精神視覺實體,能帶有一種審美情感。在我的繪畫和照片中,我用木炭和墨水,粘土和石膏,和詩進行了探索,創造了一種“精神的景觀"。表達精神從衝突的現實中昇華到一個和諧的地方,並在一起孤單的同理心中平靜地擁抱孤獨。
