Li Jinguo: Ink

Li Jinguo’s creative use of resin in sculptural works is well known. The inspiration for the ‘Bonsai’ series is the traditional Chinese art of nurturing miniature trees in pots. The recasting of classical Chinese elements such as   plant life, plum blossom and Taihu scholar rocks in crystal resin gives birth to a unique visual expression of vitality.

In his latest series ‘Untitled’, Li Jinguo uses the medium of resin to cast traditional Chinese ink imagery set in classical Western frames. The embedded whimsy of the Chinese ink imagery is subtly illuminated in a light box effect that generates a unique aesthetic that is both nostalgic and contemporary.
