Artwork Appreciation
HOU Chun-Ming’s Bless takes apart the Chinese characters of Baobi and re-assembles various elements into a single, novel pictographic work. The two characters of Baobi are shown as an arrangement of gold foil against a black background. The characters can be read separately or combined in the form of a single, novel pictograph, and their shapes and aesthetics are expressed by the artist through the combination of characters and paintings. Words have always played an important role in HOU Chun-Ming’s works and the artist believes that runes are simply untamed characters, while characters are simply runes deprived of its magic. The artwork re-visualizes the text and conveys the expansive forces and energies of Chinese characters.
