Innovative Cultural Reflection”       

Chinese Contemporary Social Symbolism
Sculptures

Creative Thinking

Xie Ke uniquely portrays fragments of history in a humorous yet thought provoking way, combining them with his own critique of the world today. He does not let various emerging trends influence his thinking, though on the other hand he does not dwell in the past, often combining the “then and now” the “old and modern” to contrast an ever changing society. His sculptures are a visually refreshing combination of Western innovativeness, with a distinctive way of rethinking traditional Chinese design, elevating the spirit and raising an awareness in the viewer that is culturally reflective.
