Mental Block

Mental Block

Year: 2014

Medium: Stoneware ceramic

Dimensions: 35 x 75 x 25


In the realm of ceramic art, I find inspiration in the dark comedy that unfolds when governments adopt policies that make the quote "Eyes are useless if the mind is blind" eerily relevant. Crafting my pieces with a satirical edge, I explore the absurdity of governmental actions that contribute to the brain drain phenomenon. Each ceramic creation becomes a vessel of mockery, a visual commentary on the shortsightedness of policies that drive away intellectual capital. The textures and shapes I sculpt reflect the twisted logic that governs decisions leading to a mass exodus of minds, leaving the homeland with a cerebral vacuum. As viewers engage with my work, they are prompted to question the wisdom behind actions that render eyes ineffective witnesses to the self-inflicted intellectual blindness imposed by those in power. Through satire, my ceramics aim to provoke a reflective pause on the consequences of government actions, shedding light on the paradox where eyes witness the departure of minds, but the vision remains painfully myopic.

More from James Seet

In the quest for eternal change as an artist, I find it essential to tell stories, the dramas of life that may begin with something obscure to the infinite complexity that tickles the emotion. It’s a visual representation of a dialogue I am after, a theatrical performance to the eyes that behold!
