One of my piece “light house” will be shown at the Exhibition of the Busan Sculptors Assciasion.
It is going to take place in Busan Cultural Center in Busan, Korea, from June 24th to July 2nd, 2016.
Below is the description of the piece “light house”.
The image of the art work is attached to this article.
The artist Haruyasu YANAGI shows the potential which all creatures have. He believes that by using that potential, we can make our lives better and colourful.
The light house is the iconic art work to indicate the hope.
Whenever we fail or feel depressed, hope is always there. YANAGI knows that it is true through his experiences.
Haruyasu YANAGI created this piece remembering the novel Strait Is The Gate by Andre Gide; the Novel Prize winner novelist.
It quotes from the Bible; Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy, that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. — New Revised Standard Version, Matthew 7:13-14
In his art work, we see many rock-like obstacles around the light house, and the path to it is very narrow. Additionally, in a metal pole there are three metal balls; they represent the past, the present and the future. When we focus on the present and fully live in it, the meaning of the past will change and the future will be promised.
