Tawainese American artist, James Jean,  fuses contemporary subjects with aesthetic techniques inspired by traditional Chinese scroll paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, and Renaissance portraiture. The  Slingshot sculpture is inspired by the film Un Chien Andalou by the Spanish direct Luis Bunel and artist Salvador Dali. The sculpture is made from bronze, painted in black but the eyes coated in gold. Though the sculpture may ostensibly reference the story of David and Goliath and Hammurabi’s code of reciprocity, “an eye for an eye,” the sculpture is more an allegorical representation of my creative struggles, as the target of my ambitions requires an element of self-sacrifice and mutilation. This is a limited edition of 25.
