Bamboo Rock by Yuefeng He

Combining exquisite bamboo weaving with lacquerwork, this piece demonstrates a mastery of both techniques which are rarely seen in combination. Bamboo has been woven in a hexagonal structure to create a stone-shaped work. Linen has then been layered over sections of the work, with intense red lacquer carefully applied and later sanded to create a glossy finish. A series of oblong panels have been left exposed, creating a tension between the materials, and contrasting solidity with lightness. The work has been realized on an impressive scale and its shape is reminiscent of scholars’ stones, which speak to ancient Chinese literary traditions.
