About the artist
‘On the road of chasing my dreams, I have seen the light, and I have struggled in the darkness. Maybe this is life, and every bit of life prompts me to express it through sculpture. Maybe my dream is empty, and the spiritual world of most of us modern people is empty, but each of us revolves in our own world until we find the exit of life’.
The young sculptor Wang Shu Chen has presented us with many sculpture works in recent years. These works have a public nature of watching and thinking about contemporary life from a personal perspective. Some works are allegorical, as if they are narrative tone of urban legends. It expresses the encounters of people in current life, the tension and persistence of individual life in the face of a rapidly changing world.
From a formal point of view, the people in the work are semi-abstract, shaped as full of Air or cloud-like appearance, this kind of “shell” existence is real, and contains a little helplessness, and at the same time, they have a sense of temperature, full of warmth. Full of goodwill and sensibility, as if you can touch the inner pulse of life.
