Chinese artist Luo Li Rong creates life-size bronze sculptures of women inspired by Renaissance and Baroque sculpting techniques. Her figures are usually captured in motion, often with their dresses or garments seemingly fluttering in the breeze around them, and the artist’s painstaking attention to detail ensures that every crease and fold is precisely where it should be.
Luo Li Rong has been living in Belgium for several years now. At a very young age she began sculpting and she studied art at the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing. When she graduated, she was honored and became a member of the workshop of the master Sun Jiabao. There she immersed herself in classical figurative sculpture used by European artists in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Their sense of femininity plays a defining role in Rong’s contemporary works, and the stylistic guidelines help carry on the tradition of realistic sculptures in art.
Her sculptures convey the beauty and grace of the human figure. Working primarily in bronze, her life-size creations feature women in motion. They strike elegant poses that elongate their bodies with a seemingly windswept appearance.
