The Art of Tin Ly – Traditional Chinese Artist’s Tools Re-examined
This project is made possible with support from Broward Cultural Division.
Gallery will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12 Noon to 6 PM.

“I began to work with clay four years ago. In the process, I have learned the advantage and limitation of clay as art medium. I preferred my work to be high-fired to cone 10 (in gas kiln), which produced a range of glaze-colors of subdued tonalities.

When I was young, schooling in Cholon (Chinese sector of Saigon, Vietnam), learning calligraphy with the simple traditional writing tools such as soft goat-hair brushes, ink stick, ink stone, etc., I was fascinated with the different effect of such simple tools and objects that could create varied writing styles of strength, nuance and vitality. How do I re-interpret and transform these writing tools to reflect the understanding of my cultural heritage?

In this planned exhibition, I propose a series of clay objects that transformed the traditional Chinese artist’s tools, such as paint-brush, water-dropper, brush-washer, brush-rest, etc. into unique sculptural objects for contemplation. In addition, a series of small water-medium paintings will harmonize the exhibition.”
