Yibai’s welded stainless steal sculptures are magnificently molded and are of oversized hand bags, high heel shoes, watches, rings and other luxury objects with high labels. He is trying to depict the real and fake confusions that take place in China’s market place. He shows luxury labels in his works as well as creating his own luxury brands. He is questioning China’s rags to riches and through his sculpture, he elaborates on material obsession. Through his work he is trying to confront the multitudes of popular brands and logos and their overwhelming presence in today’s society. These immaculate sculptures are truly amazing and Yibai’s careful detail is extraordinary.
Liao Yibai’s current exhibition “Real Fake” is taking place at Mike Weiss Gallery located at 520 West 24th Street, New York, NY from September 10th - October 30th.
