Lei Lei 雷磊 | Canopy 华盖
61 x 68 x 28 cm | Painted Bronze | Variable editions
Lei Lei born in Chengdu, Sichuan. In 2012, he graduated from the master‘s Department of Sculpture, Central Academy of Fine Arts. Lei Lei’s sculptures appeal the artist‘s strong personality. He creates a beauty of silence with a pure sculpture language. Buddha figures in caves inspired Lei Lei’s sculptures. His figure sculptures appeal soft, quiet and calm expression on faces and sometimes show gentle gestures as well as Buddha figures in caves. However, Lei Lei develops more ideal, poetic and mysterious phenomena for his figure sculptures. They look like they come from a utopia and they are in pursuit of peace and calm in the present moment. Some figures are with rocks, clouds, mountains, bamboos, birds and canoes. Nature scenery and objects in Lei Lei‘s sculptures represent dynamic activities which contrast with static gestures of human shapes. Lei Lei presents a dialogue between dynamic and static expression.
