Dreams: Animal Sculptures by Wang Ruilin
“Dreams” is a series of beautifully surreal animal sculptures by Chinese sculptor Wang Ruilin.
“Ruilin’s copper sculptures are the result of Eastern classical painting and imagery that’s been combined with past experiences. He recalls a life-changing incident when, at the age of 4 or 5, he encountered a painting of a horse by the artist Xu Beihong. He became obsessed with the vigorous animal and has ever since identified with it. The artist describes his creative process as digging deep into his heart and excavating ‘works that originally exist from various experiences’.”Art Posted on November 2, 2014
