Born in 1972, Hsien-Ming Chiang graduated from Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of The Arts
Since 1993 when Chiang’s finished his first stone sculpture, he dedicated himself in this smoky and dusty world of sculpture. He had won several important stone sculpture national awards.
His creation belief is, “My current inspiration of creation is originated from nature. I strive to explore the space that hides behind time and nature. Therefore, the only thing I can do to the stone is to explore time and the nature.” His stone sculptures present the designs of solid, liquid, geometry and contrasts, often being inspired by natural structure and creatures. His works are full of tensions. Chiang enjoys focusing on the close relationship between creation and people as well.
To Hsien-Ming Chiang, stone carving is a harsh road leading to arts. He challenges to use hard stones to picture a softness of time and space, carving the track of time passing behind. Chiang observes the soft and warm tone of stone and its rich, active lines and texture, applying not only geometry in the swing and vibrating space but also surface tension of physics by an attempt to harmoniously represent a perfect mixture of space and time.
