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。........
