The Collection: Flower Figurines & Glass Art Sculptures
This masterful rara avis stands out among others in the LIULI repertoire in that it combines the calligraphic artistry of Chang Yi and the finesse and vision of Loretta H. Yang. The work comes from the classic collection titled, “The Flowers are Beautiful and the Moon is Full.” Inscribed within a mirror-like pond in this piece are the cloudy and flowing words from Chang’s “The Pure Spring Reflects the Orchid.” Resting at the brim of the reflection is the classical “gentleman” of Chinese literature, the orchid flower—said to be among the most fragrant in the world. Its vibrancy and color contrast so well with the piece that the fragrance is almost palpable. Add a splash of water to the basin in this sculpture to achieve the best play of light and atmosphere with this remarkable art piece.
