Description

Ah Xian is a senior Chinese-Australian artist who is best known for his contemporary use of traditional Chinese cultural motifs, techniques and materials including porcelain, bronze, jade, lacquer and cloisonné. The human body is of central importance within his work, which often combines traditional Chinese objects and iconography with contemporary realism to explore the experience of living between two cultures.

'Metaphysica' is the title of Ah Xian's series of bronze busts, made in 2007. Each bust features objects resting on top of the bust's heads, ranging from Buddhist motifs and deities to animals associated with Chinese mythology.
