Canadian sculptor WW Hung has chosen another poignant and powerful pose for a figure in this mixed media piece. The nude male expresses vulnerability, his face downcast as he sits on the edge of a child-like see-saw plank, tied or ‘tethered’ to the wheel that it rests on. This is a fine example of a fulcrum; the plank is supported by the pivot point (the wheel) which the figure is balanced on and could easily tip. “I am interested in expressing the human condition through contemporary figurative sculpture. I use the human body, placed in abstract spatial contexts, to suggest different narratives and psychological states. Many of my sculptural works explore the themes of mortality, determinism (fate), free will, and the tenacity of the human spirit.” WW Hung He studied architecture at the University of Waterloo where he earned a Bachelor of Environmental Studies and a Bachelor of Architecture in 1997. After graduation, Hung relocated to New York City where he worked with several leading design firms. In 2004, he became a member of the American Institute of Architects and in 2015, a Member of the Sculptors Society of Canada. Hung’s work is held in private collections in Canada, France and the US. Tethered is edition 1/9.
