WANG Liwei: In my sculptures, leather is a material and also a symbol. Compared with other materials, people could more easily associate leather with themes of life, no matter life or death. In the oriental philosophical views of Karma, life and death are combined. The end brought by death is based on the continuity of life. Likewise, the continuity of life is also based on the end brought by death. This is neither my first attempt to employ leather for sculptures, nor could leather signatures my art. My style is marked by the lines where two pieces of leather meet, either by pasting or sewing.
