“Natural Rhythms: Echoes of Ancient Harmony”

Upon my return from London, I meticulously finished the tapestry and diligently crafted the third proposal for an exhibition at a charity organization. Now, as I await their response in early May, exhaustion weighs heavily upon me, coupled with a palpable sense of anticipation that makes me feel small and anxious.

Kindly grant him permission to remain in this location uninterrupted:

“Natural Rhythms: Echoes of Ancient Harmony” is an engaging exploration of the bond between humans and nature, inspired by ancient myths and legends. This art exhibition aims to connect us with the timeless wisdom of ecology and spirituality, fostering a deeper relationship with natural world through the lens of ancient wisdom and modern creativity.

The artwork, comprising collages and drawings, takes inspiration from the “Classic of Mountains and Seas,” an ancient Chinese book featuring mythical landscapes and creatures. The artist’s repertoire, spanning drawing, collage, and painting, has long been influenced by ancient tales, particularly those involving mythical beings. Additionally, studies on paleontology, archaeology, and cultural anthropology have informed the artistic process.

Central themes include the interconnectedness of all life forms, the cyclical nature of the environment, and the enduring wisdom present in ancient lore. Through diverse mediums such as paintings, sculptures, and tapestries, visitors embark on a journey of self-discovery and ecological awareness.

Symbolism and allegory abound in the artworks, such as the Phoenix symbolizing renewal and the cicada representing the transient nature of life. A unique aspect is public participation, encouraging visitors to interact with the art and each other, fostering dynamic dialogue.

A charming addition to the exhibition is the “Book Cottage,” a meticulously crafted dollhouse nestled within the gallery space. Within its miniature walls, visitors discover a serene sanctuary for contemplation, where ancient wisdom and modern insights converge in perfect harmony. Here, amidst the intricate details of this cozy retreat, one finds respite and inspiration—a testament to the enduring power of storytelling to bridge the gap between past and present.
