says she has a strong impact of Chinese fine classical paintings and calligraphy.
Lines has been important use for her to create forms. She says:
For me, the Chinese calligraphy gives the lines diverse visual possible
and spiritual power. This power has been leading my artistic expression,
building imagination: A line seems the print-tail when aircraft flying
through the sky; A line is the crack on ice glacier; A line is a piece
of Sunset light upon the horizon...... Line has stimulated me to discover
the sequence and express the emotion from the reality.
Jie Sun actively engages in both European and Asian design culture, as
designer/artist, researcher and curator. He says:
- Culture has always an important position in my work, either eastern
or western. I am obsessed with historic and cultural ideas and form, and
tend to translate them into my objects that are meant for similar understanding
in a new way. By adjusting and reusing recognizable contemporary objects
and shapes, new objects, concepts, sculptures and artifacts are brought
into existence. Since 2012 to early of 2014, I have created a number of
extensive series that investigates the relationship of the Chinese traditional
philosophy and traditional crafts with a process of making. The work seeks
ways in which traditional culture can be utilized as a source of artistic
inspiration for contemporary jewellery.
