『小品、品大 - 陳淑芳玻璃藝術創作展』
展覽場館：新竹市玻璃工藝博物館 - 第一特展室
陳淑芳是新加坡知名的琉璃藝術家, 在光與美的世界中領導著這個領域的發展。 二十年來她不斷的創作, 耕耘,分享與推廣琉璃藝術, 獲得了無數次的獎項與展出的機會。
這次琉璃藝術的創作主題為『小品、品大』，共40餘件， 陳老師喜歡自由自在的創作，在玻璃的世界裡表達最真摯細膩的情感，簡單就是細膩，小品，品就大。 創作者的藝術理念是讓最完美的光影，與玻璃完美呈現，震撼人心，而時間與科技蠶食了我們的赤子之心，內心裡被遺忘的童稚促使我們去驗證於真理與觀感間有趣的矛盾與衝突。
一颗寒星, 被珍藏于心的深处, 发着徽弱的光. 表质被一寸寸的削落. 逐日毁灭他优质的实心. 痛己不能代表心的哀伤.

“In these recent works I have been exploring 小品品大 (xiaoping pingda), a concept in which even in the smallest of articles, profound and multidimensional thoughts can be found. My rough translation of 小品品大 (xiaoping pingda) is “even small works can contain dignity and integrity” – in this case I have adopted this from the point of view of an artist. This has been my philosophy for the preparation of artworks for this exhibition, derived from the writings of Zhuangzi, the influential 4th century BC Chinese philosopher.
Zhuangzi introduced the concept of “太極” (taiji), which is most commonly translated to mean “the great ultimate”, a humanitarian ideal. Zhuangzi elaborates that if anything were to be ‘higher’ than “太極” (taiji) then it should not be considered ‘good’ and if anything were to be ‘deeper’ than “太極” (taichi) then it too should not be considered as ‘profound’. In some texts, this philosophy is said to explore the idea of ‘sincerity’.
Consequently, I have tried to adopt the “innocent eyes” of a child, to see the world uncorrupted by society and culture. I have tried instead to accept the imagery of the world in its pure form – to see a flower just as a flower, and a fish as just a fish, instead of the prescribed symbology that these objects may hold, like ‘romance’ or ‘luck’. I do not hold this as a one-dimensional world-view, but instead, to see that a child’s perspective is unlimited. I try to hold a pure and authentic perspective, and to develop a perspective that is without constraints and boundaries.”
