Glass artist Sunny Wang has been engaged in the art of glass teaching and creative activities for many years. She is currently working as an Assistant Professor at Hong Kong Baptist University. Her artworks were awarded an Honourable Mention at the “International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa” in Japan and the First Prize in Single Material at the “Golden Glass Awards” in Taiwan, among others, and have been showcased in exhibitions in countries such as Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Maldives, Singapore, South Korea and Mainland China.
This exhibition features twenty pieces (sets) of Wang’s glass installations. Her works are rich in oriental cultural elements. Among them, the work “Poetic Stones” is inspired by the Buddhist ode of The Ten Ox-herding Pictures and ancient Chinese phonology. Twenty-eight black stone-shaped glass of different shapes and sizes are displayed in four rows with seven in each row, corresponding to the rhythm of seven words quatrains. She uses lines in her works, making large circles as the level tone, while small circles as the oblique tone. Each circle refers to a moment, a stone refers to a rhyme. There is no way back and no interval in the course of glassblowing, just like calligraphy writing. The creation process has to be completed without interval and reversal, corresponding with the artist’s perception of “living at the moment”.
