Lee Kuang-Yu pays a homage to Rodin’s masterpiece, “Thinker” in his signature work with the same title that conveys the beauty of Eastern culture. In Lee’s reinterpretations of this classic work in Western sculptural history, he approaches this from calligraphy which embodies the essence of traditional Chinese culture. Instead of realistically portraying the subject with volume, Lee uses calligraphic line to delineate a person immersed in contemplation and outlines this image in three-dimensional space.
