Enjoy the world of circles (Art works by Sir Charle Chaplin, Carol Bak, and Master Lee Sun Don)

In modern time, Where are You?  

Chaplin's Modern Time

"Modern Times marked the last screen appearance of the Little Tramp - the character which had brought Charles Chaplin world fame, and who still remains the most universally recognised fictional image of a human being in the history of art."

You might be integrated into a life cycle, with or without "Mind".....

Melancholy - 思念

(心, "xin" means "MIND" (in Mandarin), Keeping the MIND now and here brings a chance to see the reality. )

Artist's Profiles

Karol Bak (Poznan, Poland)

Karol Bak (born 1961) is a highly skilled painter 

and graphic artist whose works are widely collected in Europe
& USA. He’s fascinated with the mystery of the circle and 
its relations with the square of the image. He creates
dreamy worlds filled with illusive spaces. 
The artist sets women in different roles: 
inter alia mythological and biblical characters. 
He’s the one who reaches the woman soul through 
the body denuded from props. He’s the follower of the
Beauty which follows mysterious paths of ecstasy.

The Chief - Ma Sing Ling瑪馨玲 New Work@X-Power Gallery (2012, TAIPEI)


Chief Seattle's 1854 speech on the environment

"How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?

Every part of the Earth is sacred to my people.
對我們的民族來說,大地的每一部份都 是神聖的。  
Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clear and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memory and experience of my people.
The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man. 
樹木裡流動的汁液都夾帶著紅人 (印地安人)的記憶。
The white man's dead forget the country of their birth when they go to walk among the stars. Our dead never forget this beautiful Earth, for it is the mother of the red man.  白人死了以後就忘了他們出生的地方,魂魄走到天上的星星之間。
We are part of the Earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters, the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers.  我們的族人死了以後從不忘記這個美麗的大地,因為大地是紅人的母親。
The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and the man, all belong to the same family.  .........
我們是大地的一部分,大地 也是我們的一部分。芬芳的花朵是我們的姊妹,鹿、馬和禿鷹是我們的兄弟。山峰、草的汁液、小馬的體溫,還有人都是同一個家庭。........

速塑除了必須具備有相當的 雕塑技巧外,也要有極高的敏銳度。其中難度是他近幾年一直在自我超越及自我挑戰。

 雕塑作品的精神絕對是來自於內在力與「架構」。「架構」是雕塑重要的基礎,人體的變化會隨著身體的擺動而牽動整體架構,凹凸肌理會呈現出耐人尋味的脈動。 雕塑世界裡,人體是重要的課題。架構揉和著創作氣質而釋放出點到為止的韻味,不急不徐、扎扎實實、誠懇樸實的一步一腳印,沒有譁眾取寵的爆點,卻有著自我 累積出的余連春藝術經驗。

A hat? Perhaps -(Works from Lee Sun Don of X-Power Gallery, Chanel and the Aran Islands)

Vision / Golden Woods • Bound-free Journey

Vision / The Home of Prosperity beyond the World  

In the movie, there was a scene Andrea keeps wandering on the street, and wearing a hat (by Chanel) . She is thinking whether to take the offer from Miranda, her boss, the chief of fashion Magazine. The invitation from Miranda is Andrea would be her assistant for the fashion week in Paris, while this will break the dream of Emily, another assistant, who was the first candidate of this job and she is eager for the trip.


 Picture originated from internet. Click here for more information.
  In the movie, Andrea did not answer directly, but the decision was made before destiny, or perhaps the hat!?

"French fashion icon Coco Chanel (1883-1971) went from being a struggling hat maker to being one of the fashion world's most recognizable names. Over the years, Chanel's simple, comfortable designs began to change the way 20th-century women dressed, freeing them of the stiff, uncomfortable trends of the past. Today, the empire that Coco built produces some of the most successful and coveted fashion items, headed by designer Karl Lagerfeld." (data source)

    "Qui qu'a vu coco?" (Who has seen Coco?)


I have a very similar style of hat which bought from the Aran islands, Galway, during my stay in Ireland 2004-2005.

The hat was of wool material and handmade. At first beginning, it was a gift for my father; while he rejected to accept the gift for thinking the style is for old men.
He is right, and also wrong about this point, since the men of the Aran islands, Ireland (different from the Scottish isle of Arran) really keep their culture traditional as original since the beginning.

More interesting article about The Aran Islands.

The patch cap hat, what I purchased then. 

Ragús - Green Grow The Rushes

Quote from Youtube: Fergal O'Murchú, accordianist and singer of Ragús, a group of musicians and dancers from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland performing traditional Irish music, sings "Green Grow the Rushes" in this wonderful piano version. The word ragús is an Irish Gaelic word for 'desire' or 'urge'.
