This book is the catalogue of the exhibition, “Pottery Sculpture by Pan Bolin”. This exhibition includes examples of Pan Bolin’s recent work such as historical figures, scenes from operas, daily life, legends, and animals. Pan Bolin, born in Shiwan, is one of the most prominent artists working today. He studied at the Central Institute of Arts and Crafts, and the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, as well as the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. Pan’s style is unique. He addresses the clash of Chinese and Western culture, and topics such as garbage collectors, and other figures that have fallen into oblivion, yet he endeavours to infuse into his works a creative spirit unseen in the past.

本書為《妙手乾坤:潘柏林陶塑展》的展覽圖錄。是次展覽展出著名陶藝家潘柏林逾百件的陶塑作品,當中包括歷史人物、戲曲小說、市井風情和仙佛動物等題材。出生於石灣的潘柏林,先後修業於中央工藝美術學院,廣州美術學院和中央美術學院。他憑著自身對藝術創作的直覺,經過不斷摸索和體悟,走出屬於潘氏獨樹一幟的個人風格。他尤注重如拾荒者一類等社會上逐漸消逝的人物,更嘗試以自身對中西文化相互抗衡的感悟,為石灣陶塑注入一股前所未有的時代感。
