Victor Liu, Maiden China Ride in Custom Hongqi E-HS9 (2024). Cast resin with porcelain powder and silver nickel. 25.25 x 30.5 x 4 in.

I'm making cast resin sculptures, about half-size, of poised figures. These figures form a small pantheon, through which I reflect, and reflect on, certain significant forces in today's world. These figures intertwine primordial myth with some of the contemporary currents which envelop us. I see them as crystallizations of competing tensions of the forces at play.
