來自新西蘭的藝術家 Ben Young，是一位自學成才的玻璃雕刻藝術家。在海邊長大的他經歷賦予比其他人對海洋、浪潮等自然景觀更強烈的感受。
A New Zealand-based self-taught artist, Ben Young has transformed concrete and glass into ocean. Residing in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, Young’s works are inspired by oceans and seas and their relationship to land.
All of Young’s sculptural works are hand drawn, hand cut and handcrafted from clear sheet float glass, then laminated layer upon layer to create the final form. His work explores the use of industrial materials to compliment the organic glass shapes. Young likes the idea that concrete is a basic construction material, and also the physical and visual contrasts between the textures and colours of both materials. Yet, he uses glass to portray different elements of his conceptual ideas. More importantly, lighting plays a large part in the presentation as it reflects and gives the illusion of the artwork being brought to life.
