Description Wang Keping (China, B.1949)

Inscribed “?K” and numbered “5/8”
Bronze (hammered with patina) sculpture
54 x 30 x 34 cm

From the essence of natural surfaces and textures, which the artist always implies the essence to his sculptures: soft materials, raw or polished, which evolve in his hands.

Sensual shapes, smooth and round curves, often evoke the feminine body. The temporality is underlined by the scars and bumps of the wood that reflect the life story of each piece.

In this work “Couple”, Wang Keping translates artistically the sensuality arising from the meeting of two bodies and two souls. Two persons embrace together as to better preserve the softness and intimacy of their passion.

The sculpture, originally a blackened wood 45 cm, has been transcribed here in a wonderful bronze sculpture mark the greatness of this eternal love. Made of hammered bronze and sophistically patinated, completely hammered by hand. Wang Keping faithfully translates the visual and aesthetic qualities of wood while providing a lasting and monumental dimension by adopting the bronze while preserving the original touch of wood.
