Influenced by minimalism arts and inspired by contemporary architectures, Sheng’s passion concentrates on the exploration and expression of the relationship between internal and external spaces with significant contrasting elements such as forms, textures and colours.
The collection involves the utilisation of highlighted incisions and openings to imply and emphasise the link of internal and external space, as well as introducing light as an indicator of different spaces to allow the viewer to look through and explore the entire piece. This also strengthens the visual response, captures attention and produces curiosity for the viewer.
By employing simple geometric forms and contrasting colours, Sheng demonstrates a minimal style and visual language, which reflects his personality, philosophy and personal aesthetic.
All the pieces are metal, which are hand made with appropriate techniques including plating and oxidising. Collections consist of functional and non functional items. Each piece is unique as a result of carefully controlled and purposely structured.
