“Art gives us wings and carries us far far away” — Anton Chekhov
In the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 virus silently started to spread in China, and then the world. It has cold heartedly taken many people’s lives and attacked people’s health.Suddenly we have been dragged into a war without notification.
In just a short month, we have experienced shock, fear, anger, grief, helplessness, and anxiety for the future. More than that, every family and individual has paid the price of their freedom. When locked down at home, many people’s only wish is to get back the life that the virus destroyed. Suddenly survival has become an urgent need for Chinese people even though we are in the 21st century.
However, though disaster is heartless, humanity never loses its heart. So even though we are in the middle of disaster, the longing for beauty and goodness still rises from the human instinct. In this extraordinary situation, we see noble actions by ordinary people, and their stories touch all of us. In fact, greatness is formed by persisting every day, just as even the most powerful rapid is formed by the smallest of streams! Therefor, in these times when the virus recklessly swallows life and threatens all living beings, in the middle of disaster, each and every one of us need to choose to do good. No matter in small or in large, everyone has the ability to do good!
As a member of society, TCG NORDICA’s mission is to share the beauty of art with the world, because we believe that art does not only create beauty, but also provokes reflection, and expresses the innermost thoughts and feelings of mankind.
Picasso believed that art could wash away from the soul the dust of everyday life. M. Edwards believed that art could heal scars. So we wish to, limited by our own ability, do our best to accompany all of you with art and culture.
