Biography

Sculptor Shi Jianmin works in cast, hand-cut metals, such as stainless steel and polished aluminum, to create works that appear to defy states of matter. His monumental biomorphic forms have molten surfaces, with planes that dissolve into cavities and grotto-like chambers. Shi’s Suckling Pigs (2008), for example, is a bronze table with six stools, whose largely abstract forms suggest animalian features thanks to the work’s title.
