In the beginning of May while visiting San Francisco, me and my boyfriend noticed an art exhibit at the Union Square. There must have been at least 10 artists present. To our disbelief each art exhibition’s artist was there, too. After walking through the isles of sculptures and pictures, I found myself right in front of a very interesting sculpture. It had only an outline. Placed right in front of a white board, it put its shade on it, which was a naked woman with her arms up.
I fell in love with it right away. I kept walking through and looking at more sculptures in the same style, when I was approached by a guy who introduced himself to be … the sculptor who made them – Feng Jin! He was regularly dressed and very soft-spoken. He explained that we were looking at the shadow sculptures. Normally, a person would put it behind the light and the big wall shadows would occupy the room.
If you ever have a chance, try to see his exhibition, it is really amazing. Feng Jin’s website is www.dreamcatchersart.com, but it does not have his shadow sculptures. I, on the other hand, have it right here!
