Artist Statement

The series of 5 works are inspired by the writing of Indian philosopher and spiritual writer Jiddu Krishnamurti from his book The Book of Life or Krishnamurti’s Notebook.

The writings deal with the concept that the mind and spirit is always looking for answers to the state of existence but “being and living in the moment” is the best philosophy for living one’s life in harmony, and this is where to look for the concept of Utopia.

Zhou Hongbin incorporates traditional animals and birds of Chinese mythology that stand for harmony, peace and good values (deer, horse, crane, peacock, parrot) – but also incorporates the snake to add the element of menace, evil and disharmony, common element in all philosophy’s. The circle format echoes the Chinese “moon gate” that is used as a portal into spaces of harmony and tranquility.
