Sculpture-Mask Under the Environment of Chinese Rock Painting Art

Jiachao LIANG


China is one of the countries where rock paintings were earliest and most numerously found and which has the earliest record of rock paintings.
The artistic form of rock painting, as the materialization of primitive human’s aesthetic consciousness, can be treated as a reflection of material and spiritual life of our ancestors, which is what I focus on and keep pursuing. Not only does it reflect the varied and colorful life slices and unsophisticated spiritual world of ancestors, but also it shows the unlimited vitality of primitive art.
 In my “sculpture world”, sculpture, as a kind of culture and artistic form of expressing and creating great sense of beauty, represent the current reality of true feeling, a kind of direct, pure, original experience.
In this thesis, by explaining the content, form and spiritual connotations of my sculpture work Mask, I will discribe my sculpture concept and pursuit-current reality.
