Poren Huang (TW)

sculpture

artistic position

Poren Huang uses the dog as a creative starting point and every sculpture is reminiscent of people. By linking dogs with humans, the artist invites the viewer to think about and reflect on themselves.

In 2005 Poren Huang started the metal sculpture series THE DOG’S NOTES. So far, around 40 works of bronze, gold leaf and stainless steel have been carried out. New works were added to this series in 2019 and 2020.

Some pieces are very human-like and directly portray Pore Huang’s attempt to refer to people with dogs. However, since people’s lives are often dark and depressed in modern times, the artist uses the humorous perspective to amuse the viewer. The observers actively interact with the works. Through this continuous process, the visitors are enlightened to comprehensive life philosophies, they are conveyed to positive traits such as courage, loyalty, innocence or self-confidence.
