Whitestone Gallery is honored to present Out Of My Cocoon, a group exhibition featuring the remarkable works of three acclaimed artists: Rebecca Bernau, Sachiko Kamiki, and Wu Shuang. While each artist possesses a unique artistic voice, they share a deep commitment to exploring the depths of human emotion, the intricate beauty of nature, and our intrinsic connection to the world around us. “Out of my cocoon” signifies different stages of artistic development, while also applicable to life and the spiritual maturation of mankind and personality. The cocoon symbolizes a place of retreat, as an observer that roams through life before pupation, perceiving the world through the filter of “glasses”. These glasses are shaped by inborn personalities and colored by the unique experiences of the individual. The cocoon phase can be seen as a period of mental digestion, characterized by rest and passivity. After spending time in the cocoon, the subject would have undergone rapid growth and transformation. Altogether, observation, cocooning, and production form a constant cycle. All phases are necessary for happiness and functionality.
Knowing and perceiving this constant cycle means a better understanding of myself and my possibilities to be artistically active.
When experiencing the works of Rebecca Bernau, Sachiko Kamiki, and Wu Shuang together, viewers can expect a harmonious convergence of aesthetics, emotions, and narratives. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to witness the interplay of distinct artistic voices, united by a shared pursuit of exploring the human experience, our relationship with nature, and the profound connections that bind us all. By immersing themselves in this captivating showcase, the audience will be inspired, moved, and transported to a realm where art becomes a powerful catalyst for introspection and cultural exchange.
