Artwork Appreciation
Etan Pavavalung is a member of the Tavadran tribe of the Paiwan people in Sandimen at Pingtung County. His artworks symbolize his emotional ties with his homeland and the living force and memories of the land. Family in the Wind is his trace layer carving painting, presenting the textures, stacked patterns, carvings, and colors derived from the traditional aesthetic and artistic styles of his people. The spiritual forms of lily flowers in the composition symbolize redemption and resurrection. The flowers retain their resilient forms even when hit by strong winds, symbolizing the unity and tenacious nature of life. Etan Pavavalung uses a harmonious, detailed, and traditionalist style in an attempt to rouse cultural, ecological, and lifestyle awareness while communicating simple and rustic principles of life.
