Artist Statement
"Artists of the Silk Road" Sculpture Series


Note: The Master of Fine Art International Practice (MFA) course at Universityof the Creative Arts in Canterbury (Kent, England) lasts two years. UCCA also offers a Master of Art (MA) course which lasts a year. Since I was already a practicing artist and a monumental sculptor with an international background, it made sense to select the MFA option.


"My MFA journeys took me to several ancient sites over a two year period. But it is ultimately both north and south routes of China's ancient Silk Road, from Xi'An to fabled Kashgar at the foot of the Himalayas across both Gobi and Taklamakan deserts, through Sichuan's grottoes and Yunnan's mountains to inner Tibet, which became the focus of my final work.

The 'Artists of the Silk Road Series' is more than just a fanciful tribute to the nameless artists who created art treasures found in remote grottoes and temples under the harshest of conditions. It is also a social comment on the continuing role of artists in shaping world culture, from the early days of pre-history to our modern day.

My imaginary artists - each and everyone one of them, are unique individuals. They are men and women, young and old. They are visionaries, communicators - exchangers of ideas, agents and promoters of understanding between cultures, individual interpreters and shapers of the spiritual, emotional, artistic and ethical values of our world. They are geniuses and they are human.

Whether lead artists or simply skilled crafts folk, I have sought in them to embody all those whose spirit, mind and hand create wonders."
