WANG KEPING
Wang Keping was one of the founders of the non-conformist artist group “The Stars” (Xing Xing), formed in 1979 during the post-Cultural Revolution “Beijing Spring”. This group of young avant-garde artists challenged the status quo and were pivotal in initiating some of the first free art expressions in the Post-Mao era bringing together like-minded artists such as Huang Rui and Ma Desheng. As one of France and China’s foremost sculptors, Wang Keping’s sculptures are an exploration of the human form. With a natural intuition of space and balance, they convey a highly sensual representation of the female body, of man and woman, mother and child. Wang Keping reveals the natural contours of the wood: the grain; knots; and flaws to evoke figurative representations in his work. Inspired in his early years by masters of European Modernist sculpture, his search today stems from Taoist ideas of simplicity and nature, material and the non-material, physical and spiritual, each piece defying definition.

READ AN EXCERPT HIGHLIGHTING WANG KEPING BY CHRISTIE'S
30 Nov 2011
" Qi Baishi once mentioned, 'the wonder lies in the shade between likeness and unlikeness, bearing total resemblance is far too flattering while total abstraction is deceiving'. This idea inspired me strikingly in my opinion. Artistic creation rests not on theories, yet of course, my workers were immensely affected by the chinese philosophical aesthetics, and I was deeply rooted. I focus not on the form or the precise portrayal; whats really important is meaning itself. As the Chinese saying goes, 'everything can be left behind when you reach the gist, the mere form is unimportant.' "
