ABSORPTION by sculptor Anette Kaas
Absorption, a ceramic sculpture that, with its elongated shape, elegantly curves and twists like a dancer frozen in motion. The surface is adorned with a fascinating mix of textures and a color palette that blends together harmoniously, reflecting reverence for nature and the interaction between humanity and the environment, which seems to shift and evolve.
As the light dances on its surface, shadows are born that play hide and seek in the cracks and a central void captures the imagination. At its core, Absorption invites us to contemplate the ever-changing nature of existence. Its openings and cavities symbolize our receptivity to the world around us, and the many experiences and emotions that shape our lives.
As we approach Absorption, we discover hidden surprises in its intricate structure. Small fragments which symbolize fragments of memories, experiences and knowledge. They invite us to consider the power of knowledge and the profound impact it has on our lives. Each fragment tells a story, whispering secrets of the past and wisdom for the future. It encourages us to open ourselves to the world, to absorb its joys and sorrows, to be receptive to change, and to embrace the transformative power of art. Through its presence, this ceramic symphony speaks to our souls and invites us to participate in the magnificent tapestry of existence. To explore the intricate dance between what we absorb and what we radiate to the world and to grow. A gentle and timeless reminder that just as clay takes shape in the hands, our lives are shaped by the experiences and emotions that permeate our being. “Absorption” stands as a testament to the power of art to remind us of the beauty and depth of the human experience and the movement of light.
