“The artists (each of whom made half the work) celebrate rain as an analogy for the creative imagination. Just as water is the universal solvent and the source of life, they say, so the imagination is an all embracing source of ideas, which must be contained and channeled just as water is.”
beautiful, deep, sublime
so much to reflect on

      (((Leonie))) I was sure he had carved all the forms in graphite but discovered in reading that he used wood for these forms over the three years of looking deeply at his place within the larger “insanity” of Chinese society, to quote from his bio
      “The neatly arrayed shapes speak of isolation, anger, pointless rules and grinding toil. But over the months of labour, the artist’s feelings changed. For all its hard edges and barbaric spikes, his meaningless anti-landscape has an air of harmony and calm.”
