Figure with Amphora II

Le 07/07/2017

Bearing Figure est la synthèse de la recherche de Ben Tré sur le corps humain et le vase. La série est riche en associations spirituelles et mystiques. L’artiste a enveloppé la forme intérieure du vase dans un revêtement protecteur de métal ou de pierre. Les cavités internes qui, auparavant, indiquaient une coupure entre esprit et intellect ne semblent plus séparées. Dans Bearing Figure de Ben Tré, le vase et le corps sont imperceptiblement reliés ; les aspects masculins et féminins sont en équilibre parfait ; l’intérieur et l’extérieur ne font plus qu’un.
