In this era of great change and uncertainty, Sui’s oeuvre is imbued with interpretations of “force,” pressures that are rooted internally and conflicts of external resistance. Through intimate contact with objects, the artist expresses the infinite vitality of “formal” creation. With constant experimentation, Sui explores the complex emotional relationships between man and material, pushing Chinese contemporary sculpture into formal abstraction. If you are in Beijing be sure to visit this beautiful exhibit of his work, now on view until April 14th.
