「一同傾聽行星的神秘奧義，仰望遼闊宇宙的無限可能。」 《Holst's Planets 霍爾斯特的行星使者》是駐美藝術家徐鈺樺2023年的全新創作。 靈感來自一組由英國作曲家霍爾斯特所創作的管弦樂組曲《行星 The Planets》，創作於1914年到1917年之間，全曲由七個樂章組成，分別以太陽系中的七個行星命名。 徐鈺樺以霍爾斯特筆下的行星個性為題材，將想像力豐富的孩子和充滿靈性的動物們轉化為夢幻的行星使者。霍爾斯特自述：「行星組曲是一系列的心情圖片。」徐鈺樺希望這次的全新創作也能帶給大家一份寧靜安逸，一同傾聽行星的神秘奧義，仰望遼闊宇宙的無限可能。 CC Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Martin Hsu, Taiwanese-American artist based in San Francisco, California. His latest collection of original paintings was inspired by English composer Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite, The Planets. Written between 1914 and 1917, each movement is named after a planet of the Solar System. Holst described his music as “mood pictures” that convey the spirit and mythology of the planets’ corresponding astrological signs. With Holst’s music as a launching point, Hsu depicts each planet as a cosmic messenger, both in human and animal forms. From Mars, The Bringer of War to Neptune, the Mystic, each planetary personification in Hsu’s artwork incorporates elements from Greek mythology, nature, and indigenous symbolism from around the world. These thought-provoking depictions of the myths, moods, and cosmic mysteries of the planets of the Solar System will invite viewers to appreciate the beauty and infinite possibilities of the universe, both within ourselves and in the skies above.
