Drawing Breath

Cindy Chen

Opening Night 15 June
15 June - 18 June

As an exercise in place creation, "Drawing Breath" is an installation which explores whether the notion of spiritual attachment to a place of origin, although vital to a sense of identity in traditional cultures, relates to us now in a contemporary context of rapid social change and global movement. By using the highly responsive medium of traditional ink and brush on paper to visually interpret the unique qualities of Buddhist chanting, I express a personal, intuitive reaction to the sound and its movement through time and space. Through the installation of these abstract drawings, "Drawing Breath" borrows conceptual and compositional elements from Chinese classical gardens with the intention of shaping the gallery site into a place of aesthetic and spiritual contemplation.
