LION'S BREATH 
狮子之息 
FERDI B DICK
My grandfather loved going to the Kruger National Park every chance he could and the lions were his favourite animal. One of his favourite things to do with us kids was to make a powerful growl. I think it was his way of connecting to us. 

我的祖父最爱一逮到机会就去克鲁格国家公园,而狮子 是他最喜欢的动物。他最喜欢和我们这些孩子一起做的 事情之一就是发出有力的咆哮声。我想这应该是他认为 能和我们更好地联系的方式。 

The interesting thing about a lion when it growls, it sticks his tongue out and this reminds me of the posture in yoga called lion's breath. One sticks out your tongue and makes a loud growl sound to release build up emotions, tension, and pressure, repeating that sound over again in this releasing posture.
 
狮子咆哮时的有趣之处在于它会伸出舌头。这让我想起 了瑜伽中称为“狮子之息”的姿势。你需要伸出你的舌头, 然后发出响亮的咆哮声以释放积聚的情绪、紧张和压力, 并以这种释放姿势再次重复该声音。 

With Lion's breath, I am creating a breathing space, a sort of reprieve from tension. I have not chosen to focus on any political and social issues as there is no shortage in South Africa and I think a lot of artists have explored this arena and is well documented. Lion Breath is more about letting go, creating a breathing space, to alleviate stress, and to heal from our daily routine. 

借助“狮子之息”,我正在创造一个呼吸空间和一种缓解紧 张的方法。我没有选择关注任何政治和社会问题,因为南 非并不缺乏。我认为很多艺术家也已经探索过了这个领 域并且有据可查。 “狮子之息”想传达更多的是放手,创造 一个呼吸空间,减轻压力,并从我们的日常生活中疗愈起 来。
In the opposing position we have the dog, playfully and humoristically interacting with the lion, mirroring his action. The dog is my trademark and always features as a theme in my artwork because I love dogs, and dogs are silly beings teaching us to relax. 

在它相反的位置有一只狗。它正一边模仿狮子的动作,一 边与狮子嬉戏和幽默地互动。在狗作为我的商标的同时, 它也一直是我作品中的主题。这是因为我爱狗,而它们也 是教会我们放松的可爱生物。 

The design of the lion's mane has a twirly twisting ripple motion showing him shrugging off the tension. This twisting rotating mane is replicated on the wall in a display of colours to offset the reflective sculpture surfaces. This wall art is in 5 different freeze frames capturing the motion of the lion sticking its tongue out in 13 colours leading to 65 unique pieces. 

狮子鬃毛的设计有一个扭曲的波纹运动,这表明它正在 摆脱紧张。这种扭曲旋转的鬃毛以颜色的形式复制在墙 上,以抵消反光的雕塑表面。这幅壁画采用五种定格不同 的画面,并以十三种颜色捕捉狮子伸出舌头的动作,从而 形成六十五种独特的作品。 

To further complement these pieces, the exhibition features a very modern and playful take on the sculptures by casting them in colourful crystal. The transparency, colour and brilliance plays around with the light, highlighting its form and making them a statement piece in any classic or contemporary home. 

为了进一步配合这些作品,展览以非常现代和有趣的方 式呈现了该雕塑 - 将它们铸造成彩色水晶。透明度、颜色 和光彩与光线交相辉映,突出其形式,使它们成为任何经 典或现代家居中的个性单品。

Made from high-quality crystal oar, crystals offer a unique combination of transparency, colour, and brilliance that is hard to find in other materials. The ancient lost-wax casting technique used to create it, which has a lineage stretching back thousands of years, makes it exclusive and an ancient art form. Additionally, crystal sculptures are extremely durable and resistant to scratches, chips, and other forms of damage. This makes it perfect for creating long-lasting, beautiful sculptures that can be enjoyed for years to come. I have chosen a slightly frosted finish to give the sculpture a vintage look and infusing different types of metal and minerals in the casting process to capture the swirls and movement of the colour textures within the sculpture.

由优质的水晶桨制成,水晶具有其他材料中难以找到的透明度、颜色和亮度的独特组合。由于水晶是采用具有数千年历史渊源的古老脱蜡铸造技术所造,这更使它拥有一种独特和古老的艺术形式。此外,水晶雕塑也非常耐用、抗划痕、碎裂和其他形式的损坏。这使得它非常适合制作成能供人们欣赏多年的经久耐用和精美绝伦的雕塑。我也为这座雕塑选择了略带磨砂的饰面,因为这使得雕塑具有复古的外观。在铸造过程中,我也注入了不同类型的金属和矿物,以更好地捕捉颜色在雕塑里地纹理漩涡和运动。
