Twenty sculptures created by Asia Chan-Rose can be seen in Denbigh

AN EXHIBITION by a Denbighshire artist is open to the public as part of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.

It was created by Asia Chan-Rose, a British Taiwanese sculptor, based in Denbigh.

She will exhibit 20 sculpture works, including some inspired during the pandemic, as well as her groundbreaking Chinese calligraphy sculptures (Wind Series), in an exhibition titled “Remembrance” – Love In Art.

The general public is invited to the exhibition on May 21 and 22 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) which is held within the grounds of the artist’s house in Denbigh.

The main sculpture in the “Remembrance” exhibition is carved from a century-old sycamore tree trunk, taken from the fields of Plas Clough, and is dedicated to the public, armed forces and medical personnel who have served or are still serving selflessly, especially in a time of need.

Also on display will be “Flying Eagle; Resting On The Mountain Top – The Lord Is My Strength,” another sculpture created during the pandemic, and other new pieces.

A “re-emerging” artist due to her motherhood, Asia’s works are known to be powerfully expressive, moving some viewers to tears; deeply layered, yet simple in their philosophy and truth.

Even the titles are a natural, poetic and autonomous flow of expression.
Her journey is that, as she defines it, of “sculpting life and time”.

She said: “As human beings, we all have to go through the same life journeys, and it is through these life experiences that the bridge of connection can be built.

“A bridge between peoples, between cultures, between East and West; no division, no war.”

This is the aspiration of “Remembrance” – Love In Art, and particularly relevant in the current political climate.

Laura O’Hare, Director of the Visual Artists Association, said: “We are proud to present this art exhibition as part of the Jubilee celebrations.

“This is an opportunity for people in North Wales to appreciate the works of international artist Asia Chan-Rose, which commemorate life experiences everyone can relate to.

“Inspirational works show the bridge between cultures and community.”
