These figurative human and equine sculptures are by a trio of Beijing-based artists who go by the name Unmask Group. Liu Zhan, Kuang Jun and Tan Tianwei met while at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and have been producing sculptural work together since 2001. These seemingly incomplete stainless steel works show figures in a state of dissolution or perhaps just the opposite, emergence. Regardless, the delicate lines and smooth curves left by the absence of materials make them appear almost sensual. These particular pieces were on display at H.T. Gallery through last month.
