Hualien Stone Sculpture Museum

Face of Wind

The artist has written a poem, “Around the edges of the Returning Waves (alias of Hualien), there are pieces of spindrifts prompting endless nostalgia of east wind; On the top of the thousand-year marble mountain, there is a temple for gathering dreamers; In order to chase beautiful truth, they shuttle over the rocks of mountains and brave the sea winds; Going through the gauntlet and being thoroughly tempered, they brave the wind to move forward like carving out the face of flying.” The poem is the comment of the features in Hualien. The artist creates romantic personified imagination from the phenomenon of winds generated by blowing air in the nature, while he also uses book-like upright stone material to create an image like pages blown and turned by winds on the upper right corner, and the main part of it has a human’s right ear with an earring which realizes the image of human’s organ; and on the right below, there is a contour of human’s profile in the edge to imply the dynamic of wind. Such perception of auditory sense and bedecked appearance would prompt viewers to be lost in wild and fanciful thoughts.
