FEATURE ARTIST: Akiko Suzuki
Here is a sample of the feature written for the wonderful contemporary artist Akiko Suzuki. More can be found at the John Hopper site (http://djohnhopper.blogspot.co.uk/)
Everything in the world is in transit, in fact everything in our universe is in transit. There is always movement from one space to another. Nothing stays within one space, nothing lasts for an infinity within the physical world, including ourselves. It is one of the perceived tragedies that is life, but it is also one of the meanings of life. Life in transit is life.
We are physical creatures of finite experience. We play the role of a fixed entity with a handful of senses, and yet we are at the same time, so much more. We understand and can participate in the larger realms of experience. We can push ourselves to explore the spaces between things, whether they be the silences between things, the stillness between things, the nothingness between things.
Artists in particular, have a penchant for experiencing other realms, other moments and spaces. They explore what it is to see events from perspectives outside of our immediate senses, of our immediate daily lives, and that is an invaluable gift. In fact, so invaluable a gift is it that it has become a big factor in how we maintain and develop our very humanity.
