Kunning's works are inspired by the changes and unchanging things around, and they are sometimes presented in a process. Her work usually starts with observation, and finds the relatively constant things in the changing life from day to day. The shape and texture come from her observation and reflection on the surrounding environment and life. She works with precious metals and also with materials within reach, such as waste wood, where she explores the materiality and material relationships.
The works of this series focus on the material itself, trying to express the conversion and conservation between different texture of silver. When one thing gradually disappears until it dies, there must be another thing growing. Kunning hopes to use a material to express this sense of balance between growth and death, rebirth and old age. She is touched by the conservation and transformation of this material and also in our life. She hopes to bring some thoughts about change and unchanging to the audience and hopefully that we can find our balance.
