Duck Negotiations, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei [series
of 10] (2008)
We are left to wonder if the duck just came through the window, and the woman is trying to coax him out of the house, or if, as is common in China, she bought him at the market and is trying to coax him into the kitchen.
Either way, it is a cute sculpture from Xu's famous chubby series. It is filled with movement, patience, and anticipation.
Waking, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hongfei (许鸿飞)
She has just woken up and it is time to get dressed and ready for a new day. She has her knee on the chair, in a gentle pose, her clothing hanging over the arm of the chair.
Fun, original white marble sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (2011)
Xu Hongfei thinks that both chubby women and dogs can be fun, so what could be more fun than a chubby woman playing with her cute chubby Pekingese dog with his curled tail?
There is another famous woman and dog sculpture with a woman walking a dog, on Shamian Island, near the White Saw Hotel, in Guangzhou. Although the sculpture originally had two women with dogs, passing one another, going in opposite directions: one short and voluptuous, one tall and skinny, lonly the chubby part is currently installed, on Shamian.
This one is also available in wood.
Chubby Polo, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (2010)
[series of 10]
This is really a cute piece. The woman is bent over one side of her horse, ready to take a shot at the ball. The horse is in mid-gallop, and the view from the rear is quite fun. Up close (see hyperlink for more detail), you can see the determination on her face as she leans in to wallop the ball, the shaft of her mallet bent from the forcefulness of her swing.
We always appreciate the movement that Xu Hongfei depicts in his sculptures. They are so alive, in ways that make them even more fun.
Summer, original wood sculpture by Xu Hongfei (许鸿飞)
Summer in south China can be hot and draining. Indeed, many businesses close for a lunchtime siesta, and seeing people taking little naps everywhere is quite common.
It is a nicely done piece, and a piece of social commentary, made as part of Xu's famous chubby series to make it more fun. Carved from a single block of wood, it is an exquisite piece of art; the darkness of the wood gives it a richness, and it has nice, smooth curvy lines that make you want to run your hands over it.
Reach for the Moon, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (2010)
On tiptoe in her lung, one see the gracefulness of her movement: a voluptuous beauty, in her frilly tennis dress, at ease on the court.
This is a very cute sculpture from Xu's famous chubby series.
