Kordelya Zhan Sui Chi
artist

Introduction

Kordelya Zhan Sui Chi is an Archibald Prize artist well known for her portrait works in Australia.

Kody was born in Guangzhou, China, and graduated with a bachelor of arts from the Fine Arts Institute there. She wanted to explore the world and came to Australia in 1987, journeying back home for up to five months a year to reacquaint with the culture and to paint.

Her talent comes in buckets, or paint cans. The 2008 Archibald entry of her son, Julius, made the top five, and in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize she has made the top five three times.

She is also a sculptor, print maker and ceramic artist and in 2015 was a busy year having four exhibitions in her homeland.

Passion

Whatever defining term is given to 'Art', The creative process stems from the individual's heart. It is an internal dialogue based mainly on instinct and intuition. Whilst both instinct and intuition are themselves shaped by one's experience of reality, they all merge to shape, colour, inspire and pattern the creative outflow.

Whether working in stone or paint, this surge of images appears to be more real than reality itself. I personally am influenced by everything and nothing or put differently, I am trying to remain unaffected by this bewildering array of images and endeavour to retain my individuality and purity of heart.

I consider life a miracle.

I emerge through it all with sincerity.

Portraits

I would wish my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having a look of the sitter, being them.

abstracts

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was.

drawings

I see drawings and pictures in the poorest of huts and the dirtiest of corners.

Ceramics

Ceramic art provides an unequalled bridge to our most ancient ancestors 25,000–30,000 years ago. Working in ceramics gives me a sense of timelessness. It connects our ancient past to our future through an object created today.

Landscapes

The landscape you grow up in speaks to you in a way that nowhere else does.
