Yaxi - Contemporary Chinese Sculptor
"Horses & Riders" Sculpture in India - 2010
|In 2010, Chinese sculptor Zhang Yaxi
was invited to represent China at an international
sculpture symposium in Gwalior, India where she created an equestrian
sculpture installation - a horse and
rider grouping (4 horses and 4 riders). This monumental,
sculpture installation is in steel, painted in situ.
The grouping is playful in its simplicity, with a stylized and almost naive rendering of the forms, yet it is also poignant: two adult riders in conversation, with two young riders flanking them on either side create a powerful tableau.
