Lot description
"The Silence" (2010) is a dynamic painted fiberglass sculpture by one of the most critically acclaimed young artists of his generation in Asia, Gong Dong (China, b. 1977) is edition 3 of 8, measures 47.24 x 25.59 x 23.62 inches (120 x 60 x 65 cm), and is in excellent condition. "The Silence" encapsulates the very best of the Pop-Art based aesthetic that defines Gong's oeuvre, here his seemingly harmless, happy, nude figure holds a deflated, ultimately useless gun, a subtle commentary on present-day notions of power and violence. Gong is know for his sculptural narratives that use visually simplistic forms to carry more complex messages that integrate irony, subversion and self-reflection.
Gong Dong was born in Fujian China and received his formal degree at the Fuzhou Art Institute in the sculpture Department. The artist has been included in many major exhibitions like the Fuzhou state art Exhibition in 2003, China; the 2006 Sea. Music. International Sculpture Exhibition, China; "We. Sky Solo Contemporary" Art Sculpture in China. The artist currently lives and works in Xiamen, China.
