The Visual Meditation of Hua Jin's Don't Look, You Will See

Edmonton Location

Thursday, December 10, 2015

DUG artist Hua Jin recently completed her MFA in Photography at Concordia University in Montreal which culminated in a thesis exhibition titled Don’t Look, You Will See.

Exhibition Statement:

Don’t Look, You Will See is an exploration of visual meditation. It functions as a visual mediator for the viewer to travel beyond the physical photographs and to enjoy the sensations that those photographs evoke. What is visible and invisible within this exhibition will generate an exchange between one’s physical eyes and spiritual eyes.

The exhibition aims to provide a visual middle ground that will allow the viewer to adjust their sensory perspective in order to achieve a sense of harmony, unlimitedness and unboundedness.

Don’t Look, You Will See can be read as a piece of dance in which the inner flow within each piece and between each work is the essence to be tasted.

Photographs from Don’t Look, You Will See are on view now at the Art Collectors’ Starter Kit Show at the Douglas Udell Gallery until December 26th.

Mountain is an installation that deals with the subject of impermanence and temporality in relation to Buddhism’s point of view of observing this reality. Mountain aims to create a mind-landscape, which put the audience in a rather distant and dethatched point of view to observe and to understand the reality. The suspension suggests the instability of the existence. The material of the powder implies the basic elements of this physical world. The solid becomes fragile, the stone becomes sand within these constant changes time plays a virtual role to let it go and to let it grow.
