Bamboo   |  Sculpture雕塑品  |  Artwork藝術作品

I wish to develop a personal visual language based on the physical qualities of bamboo as a material, and through a deeper understanding of its cultural heritage and significance.

Through working with the material and understanding its strengths and weaknesses, I established a harmony and "oneness" with the substance end structure of bamboo. The repetitive process of shaving layer upon layer of material from a freshly cut bamboo pole, reducing it from a three-dimensional structural volume to a wafer-thin translucent sheet, was a transformative experience.

This experience of exploring the special qualities of this unique and versatile material has enabled me to develop a new way of positioning bamboo within the context of contemporary visual arts.
