Sihui Zhang | New Paltz, NY
bronze, rubber
1" x 6" x 4"
2016

I have always had an interest in working with new materials, I find the process of exploring a new material challenging and fascinating. By exploring the formal elements of materials, such as shape, texture, quality, etc. I am able to find the limitations of the new material. As a creative artist who works in a metal studio, my point of departure is jewelry. I am using jewelry as a format, but also in the process of making jewelry, I am exploring the connections between metal and rubber. I was drawn to the soft and flexible quality of rubber, which is opposite from metal. I am seeking a balance between these two totally different materials, and want to show the audiences the merging and accepting of them. In these experimental pieces, I have been looking for the limitations of the material, and how to blend these two materials together. I want them to share same format, and appear as a smooth and continuous shape. The different qualities of the material bring out a different experience visually and physically.

Additional shipping, tax and service fees apply. Shipping fee to be quoted by artist.
