Luo Li Rong, born in 1980 in Hunan (China), is an artist-sculptress who graduated in 2005 with high honours from the prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing. Her graduation project received numerous awards. During this period, she participated in multiple public sculpting projects, most notably for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, which had been installed in Da Lian Park from 2003. Now living in Europe, she has seen a rising recognition and appreciation of her art from international galleries and collectors.
In the presence of her works the spectator is immediately touched by the extreme delicacy of the modelling and the great sensuality that emanates from it. This mastery, as remarkable as it may be, disappears, however, in favour of the expression of its subject. The artist invites us not to remain at the stage of fascination with forms and appearances, but rather to go further still towards the spirit of the model. Thus, the veils, the passage of the wind in the hair echo, above all, the inner world of the subject.
The draperies and the look, movements incredibly alive, as if they had just been seized in the moment, are for Luo Li Rong a door ajar on the dimension of eternity present in the Human.
“Working with Daum is a unique adventure. The sensuality of the crystal, the soft reflections, the transparency… many artistic and technical challenges made possible by a century-old know-how.
What a beautiful surprise to contemplate the spirit of the model through the vibration of the colours and the flickering of light.
Daum has a long and beautiful history to which I am very happy and honoured to be associated with”.
