Li Tao

Li Tao explores mixed materials, media, and experiences. Through the combination and collision of various materials (wood, aluminum, iron, wax, to name a few) beyond the conventional, the optical and visual changes are explored. Contrary to the concept of traditional 3D sculpture, Li Tao’s works have a certain degree of planarity with a multi-layered depth. Moreover, as opposed to conventional standards, Li Tao pays more attention to the relationship between works and space. He would use the whole space as a canvas to construct his works, enhance them with more possibilities in a spatial presentation. He attempts to offset and eliminate tangible feelings of traditional sculpture to form a spontaneous combination of his ideologies with a new environment.
