刘子湉 首饰设计 本科预科
I like to observe life and integrate the trivialities of daily life into artistic creation. I believe that art should ultimately come from life, and on this basis, I will conduct in-depth thinking and integrate my own perception.
My work sardine Can was inspired by the rush hour subway. To borrow the common metaphor of being packed like sardines, I use the tin as a metaphor for the carriages and the sardines as a metaphor for the passengers. I observed all kinds of passengers in the carriage, and recorded their clothes, appearance, expressions and movements by hand painting. Thus designed a sardine character with different personalities. The sardines are hung from the 'railings of the subway' and can also be removed and worn individually as a brooch.
Current social issues are the focus of my works. I observed some inequities in the carriage, which led me to think that everyone in the carriage is a fish, and no one will give you special rights because of your position or wealth or poverty. For me, artistic creation is more like a way for me to connect with random events and ideas in my life, and more like an expression of my personal emotions. Although life repeats itself every day, I still wish I had a sense of novelty in my day.
