Opening - Wu Liang Yen @ Ode to Art in Singapore

It’s hard not to smile, looking at the latest works of Chinese sculptor Wu Liang Yen. Charaterized by their beaming smiles, upward tilted head, Wu’s youths seem to be full of optimism. Like model students, they’re all wearing a red tie around their necks. Yet their over exaggerated large heads could be a symbol of their inflated desires. The star placed underneath each figure gives the overall composition the aspect of a trophy prize that perhaps a parent can bring home and display to others.
