Katie de Tilly, founder of 10 Chancery Lane Gallery says: “Wang Keping is one of both China’s and France’s foremost sculptors. These monumental works are very rare in his practice and incorporate the natural elements of the tree’s knots and shapes while through the hand of Wang Keping come to life by way of simple understated gesture. The totems are of a man and a woman- the continued subject of Wang Keping’s obsession. Inspired in his early years by masters of European Modernist and African sculpture, his search today stems from eastern spiritual philosophies using the ideas of simplicity and nature, material and the non-material, physical and spiritual. Through his bestial erotic forms and swirling lines he works with a language of natural intuition of space and object, collaborating with his material and the secrets it has to reveal.”
