Small-medium scale bronze sculptures by Liu Yang

“Sculpture is not as explosive as other art forms.
Even so, it can be enduring,
Becoming part of your life.
When you are away from it, you will find that
Something is missing in your life.”
—Liu Yang

Contemporary artist Liu Yang
As one of the most active Chinese contemporary sculpture artists in the world, Liu Yang is also a sculptor on the road. During college (1991-1994), Liu once learned from the sculpture teacher in the studio, starting from basic skills such as collecting and mixing clays and mold making. Inspired by his passion for sculpting, Liu began to carve on his own. In 2010, being invited to participate in a symposium in Korea for the first time, the world got to know the sculptor with unique style. After that, he travelled worldwide to join various countries' sculpture symposiums, create sculptures, as well as sharing art and culture. Liu Yang's works span five continents, leaving 76 sculptures in 34 countries and regions, including India, Turkey, Russia, France, Italy, Australia and Brazil. Some of the sculptures have become permanent local cultural heritage that contain the cities' cultural, spiritual, and aesthetic significance. In 2012, Liu established the International Sculpture Symposium Alliance (ISSA), aiming to promote sculpture creation and cultural
interchange internationally. ISSA has become the most influential sculpture organization globally, whose branches are in more than 40 countries.

Liu Yang uses his hands, tools, and materials to create sculptures filled with local cultural customs, resonating with the viewers. Liu stated: “When I create sculptures in one place, I find that local children play in the shadow of my works. They grow with the sculptures. One day, these children may leave their hometown. When they return, everything may look different except those three-dimensional figures.

Sculptures are where the heart and childhood of people lie.” Through sculpture creation, Liu shows the distinctive landscape of the local scenery. These sculptures are city  landmarks as well as carriers of emotion. They are, as Liu perceives, the best memories of the life that he can offer to the local residents.

“Snow Baby” is a permanent display public sculpture at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics symbolizing friendship and the spirit of athletes.

Those bronze sculptures from Liu's "Creatures and Geometry" series with a childlike touch to depict the interactions and emotions between people and the land. Applying bold and unrestrained postures to express happiness and warmth, Liu's sculptures manage to present creatures and geometry with exaggerated proportions, amusing modellings and a minimal yet powerful expression, offering space for vivid imagination and storytelling.

"Under the Tree", “Classmates” and "Say Hello" depict love for family, friends and hometown, conveying Liu's idea for the strong nature of relationships

藝術家劉洋 - 中小型青銅雕塑作品

雕塑這種藝術沒有那麼強的爆發力,
但是它會長久存在,成為你生活的一部分,
當你離開它的時候,才發現,
原來你的生活中少了一個東西。
─劉洋

當代藝術家劉洋
劉洋,國際上最活躍的中國當代雕塑藝術家之一,也是一位行走的雕塑家。大學時(1991-1994)曾跟著雕塑老師在工作室裡做學徒,從挖泥、和泥、翻模等基礎功夫開始,因為喜歡雕刻,於是他再次拿起雕刻刀開始創作,成為雕物塑家。2010 年,他第一次受邀參加在韓國舉行的一個創作營,讓世界認識這位別具風格的雕塑家。他受邀參加多個國家的創作營,在當地創作雕塑,進行藝術文化交流,開啟了特殊的環球之旅。至今,劉洋的作品版圖遍及五大洲,在多個國家留下足跡,包括印度、土耳其、俄羅斯、法國、意大利、澳洲、巴西等,在 34 個國家和地區完成大型公共雕塑 76 件,部分雕塑則成為當地永久的文化遺產,讓承載著屬於那個時代的文化、情感與美學的作品屹立四方,成為不朽的城市雕塑。2012年,劉洋成立國際雕塑創作營聯盟,促進國際雕塑創作與文化交流,該組織已是國際上最具影響力的雕塑國際組織,分支機構遍布 40 多個國家。

藝術家透過雙手、工具及材料刻劃出富有當地人文特色及風情的作品,進而與觀眾產生共鳴。劉洋曾說:「我在當地創作雕塑的時候,看著當地孩子在自己的雕塑底下穿梭玩耍,在雕塑影子裡長大。這些孩子長大後可能會遠離家鄉,但當他們回到家鄉的時候,也許一切都變了,可是雕塑還在那裡。這個雕塑,就是他們的家鄉,就是他們的童年。」他透過雕塑創作,創造出屬於當地獨一無二的城市風景,成為當地的藝術座標,同時是情感的載體,他認為,這也是他帶給當地人最美好的生活記憶。

《雪孩子》作品獲選為「2022北京冬季奧運會」公共雕塑,放大成5公尺高的巨大版永久陳列於冬奧公園,此作品表現出朋友、戰友間堅毅團結的情感。

劉洋《生物與幾何》系列作品,描繪出人與土地之間的互動及情感,且富有童趣。作品姿態豪邁奔放、散發出歡樂與溫暖,將生物與幾何以誇張比例、逗趣的造型及簡潔有力的創作方式呈現,使得作品更為生動,也增添許多想像力及故事性。

《大樹下》、《同班同學》、《家門口》作品描繪出親情、友情與鄉情,是劉洋對濃厚的親情關係的獨特見解。
