The origin of this group of paper sculptures are
plaster models that I once used to sketch, like
Marseillaise, David, Roman Youth, and Agrippa….
I've tried to use the most loving and warm way I know
to recall this period of time. I've used paper —the
most familiar material to me —to remake these tools
of study so as to revitalize the memories in my heart.
The static models of my past were emotionless and
immutable. Yet, with bonding, cutting and polishing
paper I've made sculptures which have the same
appearance and profile, even the same color as my
old plaster models —while they remain in a static
state. However, fundamental essentials have changed
and they no longer stand as mere static plaster
models. These can be stretched, reversed, and
transformed by the hands of individuals. Their static
state and static space have changed, together
with my memory. The models have now come back
to me as my friends again, even after so many
years have passed. And now they have become the
newest medium of my artistic creation, as well as the
beginning of new possibilities.
