Amazing sculptures by Art Center College of Design grad, Ching Ching Cheng.

The artist’s bio:

“I always put myself in situations that will make the subject matter more personal for me, so my work gives an intimate and personal account of my own experiences while simultaneously encouraging the viewer to recall their own. My work is symbolic and conceptual. I present subject matter outside the self from this psychological position. I am constantly trying to replace the figures in my paintings with images that represent the idea of the figure, an object or an animal that takes on the persona of what the figure represents. This intimate gesture allows for a personal connection to be forged by the viewer with the work.

“Ultimately, there is no definitive subject, but only a meditation on personal experience and emotion. The subject matter that influences and inspires my work the most comes from psychology and nature. The ways people deal with situations are very different from one another, and I find this very special and interesting. I challenge myself through drawing, solving problems and difficult ideas. Most of my work is mixed media, using ink, watercolor, gouache, and acrylic. I work digitally and traditionally as well as three dimensionally, and I like to experiment with different techniques and mediums. The color of my work is very subtle, and quiet.”
