With the help of 3D printing, artists Linlin(Chinese) and Pierre-Yves Jacques(French) are able to create their sculptures on a new dimension. Linlin and Pierre-Yves’ yearning to mix their cultures and desires gives birth to unexpected works that are full of meaning. They have used 3D printing techniques to develop the wall sculptures out of white polyamide and gloss paint. In their latest “Animal Lace” seriers, they created head of dear, bear and elephant which protrude out from the wall in a decorative display. By night, lights glimmer through these spectacular wall sculputure and a dynamic energy radiates from the complex lace patterns in unexpected formations along the wall.
Those paper sculptures featured in this post by Li Hongbo aren’t normal paper sculpture we’ve seen before. Made from thousands of sheets of flexible paper, these sculptures actually can twist and elongate in almost any direction. Inspired by both traditional Chinese folk art (known as paper gourds—made from glued layers of paper), Li Hongbo applies a honeycomb-like structure to form remarkably flexible sculptures. Through this juxtaposition of playful mobility and a traditional aesthetic, Li Hongbo breathes a unique life into his works that stuns and awes the viewer.
By using a seemingly infinite number of buttons, beads, and pins, Brooklyn-based Korean artist Ran Hwang successfully create a vignette of cherry blossoms. Like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen, Hwang repetitively fixes hundreds of beads and buttons in floral compositions then proceeds to hammer them to a backboard or wall. When you look up close, the amount of individual buttons is somewhat overwhelming, but from afar, they are beautifully assembled cherry bloosom. No matter how many times I saw it, I always be amazed by the amount of time and patience needed to create work like that.
These colorful 3D wooden sculptures are created by Portland, Oregon-based artist AJ Fosik who is good at using geometrical shape to create dramatic effect. Using a radiant spectrum of colors for his work, artist successfully create those vivid sculptures looks like they are going to jump out of frame. These animal subjects and anthropomorphized beings are built using a complex proces by arranging hundreds of pieces of individually cut and varnished wood. Sharp teeth, claws, and eyes, ultimately, Fosik’s work explores themes of mortality, idolatry, and the duality of humanity between the physical and symbolic self.
