Luminous Relic 1481

David Huang's avatar David Huang

My work is about is striving to find a timeless beauty, something that could hopefully be appreciated in any era, past, present, or future. My feeling is that the closer I get to achieving this the more I am connecting with something that is essential to who we are as humans. Some of the elements I'm utilizing in this search are an effort to create a sacred or mysterious space, a golden inner light housed within a physical vessel as a metaphor for our bodies and inner beings, and an honoring of fine craftsmanship and the natural world.
