AART：The project of Estuary Glory is located in the center of Shunde Newtown, Shunde, Foshan, on the north bank of Desheng River. This time, AART joins hands with artists Hu Dongmin and Jiang Weijin to create works of public art that pay tribute to Desheng River of Shunde.
Every city has its own river, which has witnessed the rise and fall of the city for thousands of years, and has nurtured the coexistence of the city and nature. In Shunde, Desheng River is just such a river. As the mother river of Shunde, Desheng River has witnessed thousand-year rejuvenation of this historical city. The south bank of it is Ronggui District, a big town with rapid economic development, and the north bank is Daliang District, the political and cultural center of Shunde. The fusion of historical sites and tall buildings in new town on the both sides of Desheng River, is jointly creating the brilliant glory of Shunde.
《风生水起》 SPRING UP
The vitality of Desheng River has given artist Hu Dongmin unlimited inspiration. He refined the flowing shape of water to create the sculpture Spring Up . With free spirit and strong power, the flexible-linear shape presents the endless changes of the world; combined with the cursive imagery, it showcases the vibe of traditional calligraphy in the ups and downs.
▼设计稿 The design draft
Spring Up is installed at the entrance of the marketing center of real estate, directly facing Desheng River, echoing the natural water veins. The dynamic shape of the sculpture softens the linear building at the back, and decorates the waterscape with an elegant posture, bringing together the visual focus of the crowds. The material of stainless steel shapes the sculpture a free temperament like clouds and flowing water, crisscrossing between heaven and earth.
The sculpture not only brings the beautiful meaning of prosperity, but also continues the iconic art image of One Shenzhen Bay. But different from the magnificent momentum in front of the skyscraper, Spring Up in Shunde presents calm and connotation of the city with a more subtle roundabout dynamic, showing a tranquility of dialogue between human and nature.
《万里江山》 MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS
Also inspired by Desheng River, artist Hu Dongmin depicts the magnificent scenery of river through a piece of copper-cast work. We can imagine the poetic imagery that the stars are down on the wide plains, and the moon is appearing high above the flowing river. A magnificent landscape of rivers and mountains is revealed from a big perspective.
《云腾潮涌》 MIST AND TIDE
Artist Jiang Weijin created a piece of etching-copper work with the theme of river, which is named Mist and Tide. The mural is located at the entrance of Estuary Glory project, specially selected the material of golden cooper. It is etched with surging waves and rising clouds, presenting impressive and splendid views.
AART is honored to cooperate with these two artists to create artworks for Parkland Estuary Glory. Water, is the essential element of life, and rivers are the sustainable foundation for the development of cities in the Pearl River Delta. We should not forget the source of the rise of a city; nor should we forget the importance of the sustainable development of natural environment. We hope that we can show our awe to the strength of Desheng River, and stimulate people to more deeply think about the relationship between urban development and nature.
