‘The Form is Emptiness’

2 June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1 July 2023 @ 4:00 pm


 The Sunburst Gallery at Ards Arts Centre will host a solo exhibition of ceramic sculpture by Fang Zhao. Her practice as a ceramicist seeks to communicate international ideals through sculpture and functional pottery. The organic form of mountain shapes, inspired by Chinese Mountain Paintings, serves as a metaphor with which to examine her personal life journey.

Fang’s work seeks to synthesise traditional and modern aesthetics in order to situate a conceptualisation of the relationship between culture and the natural world.

This exhibition will address the concept of ‘the form is emptiness’. -this could refer to a philosophy or verse, benevolent see benevolence; everyone will have their own explanation.
