This sculpture by Korean artist Kang Duk Bong depicts a couple locked in an embrace. The work is created using Kang’s signature method of PVC pipes covered in a thick shell of urethane paint, which are each painted a different hue. The artist skillfully conveys the intensity and passion of this intimate moment captured through this technique, as it causes the figures to appear blurred, generating a strong sense of dynamism. Additionally, this is reinforced by his use of warm and cool toned colours, further imbuing the work with vibrancy. Kang aims to explore human relationships and communication in his art, and this work encapsulates a sense of love and intimacy in a distinctly contemporary form.
His sculptures made from plastic tubes create a sense of motion and a unique blurring effect with the use of many colors.
