Illusion in the Sculptures of Li Hongbo #ArtTuesday
What do you have when you cross a Rodin with a slinky? You have the work do Li Hongbo. That doesn’t really do the astonishing sculpted paper sculptures justice. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
Li Hongbo’s paper sculptures can accommodate all sorts of shapes. They can bend. They can stretch like accordions. Their flexibility is key to challenging and engaging the viewer. “When you change the external form of an object, people will reconsider the material itself and the creative motivation behind it.” To reconsider, to muse over the materials and the artist’s motives is part of the aesthetic experience proposed to the viewer. Uncertainty and ambiguity become a playground where information can be shared, where emotions can be felt.
