Po Shun Leong’s talk
Po Shun Leong’s artist talk brought in a full house of attendees. He discussed his architectural and cultural background as an influence on his modern craft and design. Known for mastering the technique of building and designing intricate wooden boxes and furniture, Leong has also dedicated time to creating minimalist furniture designs based off of sheets of paper. The artist discussed his experimentation of folding flat surfaces in order to mold them into purposeful shapes. These more streamlined works propose a beautiful juxtaposition to his densely built-up cabinets and large scale tower forms but they are never the less astounding, lyrical, and quite as challenging to create.
