Sculptures Xue Sun amaze the spectator with their undeniable plastic beauty. Young chinese artist based in Paris since 2004. After she had received her first academic art training in China, she obtained a Diploma of the National Superior School of Art in Paris in 2008. Combining asian and european cultures with impressive craftsmanship acquired during her studies become apparent in ceramics so as in drawings, serving a powerful poetic expression.
Rarely an artist arrives so easily to put into sensitive and rigorous shape his thinking, to unite the real and the imaginary. In her recent works Xue Sun try to make a bridge between the aesthetic refinement of East witch its more subtly descriptive and amateur taste of West more abstract, elliptical and spontaneous.
