Liao Ying Hsi 廖迎晰 | Opportune Moment (M) 晴时多云偶阵雨 (M)

80 x 45 x 78 cm | Stainless steel & cooper | Variable editions
Inquiry
 
The subject of the central part consists of a crowded and interwoven body that forms an overlapping and interlocking urban symbol. A cumulonimbus that covers the city is a metaphor for the sky and the stainless material shines with constantly varying colours under the sunlight. The seven drops of water that form the base of the city is the foundation on which urban life proceeds.
The impression given by the sculpture as a whole is of a cloud full of rain drifting above the city. A heavy downpour will wash the city and cause water to percolate into the earth. It also evokes race of coloured sunlight passing through wisps of cloud and shining on a city, where the earth absorbs the moisture and nourishes human life. The uncertainty symbolised by art can arouse boundless associations and this is the strength and salient characteristic of symbolised art.
