李光裕藉由這件同名創作向雕塑大師羅丹的代表作《沉思者》致敬,同時傳遞東方文化的美感,他重新詮釋這件西方雕塑史中的經典作品,藉由近乎書法藝術的線條體現傳統中華文化的精華,用書法線條取代以量體寫實刻畫創作物件的手法,描繪沉浸在思緒中的人物,在三維立體空間中勾勒其鮮明的形象。

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.
