A wood panel was cut out to emphasize the light-and-dark for a three-dimensional effect. On the straight and curved lines of the light-and-dark both silver and gold glitter stone powder was applied then finished the texture of the outer surface with stone powder.
This light-and-dark carving technique is far more effective in achieving a realistic and three-dimensional appearance. Utilizing the similar material as with the actual subject gives a modern portrayal. This may appear as the surface line was carved, however, a careful look will show that the light itself was carved in.
This light is “God’s light” which represents the maker’s abundant blessing of warmth and healing to all modern day man’s cynical and cold-hearted life as a flesh in hopes of returning them back to the state of good.
DESCRIPTION OF ARTWORK
On the outskirts just outside of the main city, a humble building with vinyl curtains made of cement has a shade draped over. Vines and field grass wavering shows that there is wind present.
Tired farmers, workers and traveling guests can take a rest, having some rice wine and food where there is a humble breeze of the color blue.
In my childhood days there was a Balloon Plant with its name meaning of “fun” which had a fruit shaped like a heart that made a popping sound when you pierce it. This plant had yet another meaning to its name and it was “love as same as on the inside and out” for this was due to it having a seed also shaped like a heart.
On a warm, pre-winter day as I see the ripe, dried Balloon Plant I was reminded of one’s life in a graniferous stage giving the feeling of a warm heart of a grandmother.
Wind in the Sky
The common sighted Platanus tree of the city begins it preparation for the harsh winter ahead in its place of old. As it soaks in the warmth of the late Autumn sun even warmer than that of Spring’s it hold its stance with the few dried leaves on its branches. Although its leaves are no longer lush or green it, nonetheless, shows off its beauty with the branches seems to tell the passers-by to take slower steps.
An old maiden has ceased her steps. She mentions how the tree looks the same as the one at the neck of town when she first came as she married and takes a long gaze at the turning tree.
The sight of her deep remorse a panoramic picture of her life comes into mind.
