About the artwork

With his comical and endearing take on figurative representation, Wu Qiong once again engages in social commentary by creating Laura, a character beyond social convention. Regardless of whether male or female, the moustached figure is resplendent in flamboyant cabaret apparel. The character looks upwards with characteristic facial expressions of closed eyes and open mouths - but seems to exhibit pride and confidence rather than bewildered idealism.

Both sculptor and painter, Wu creates art that represents the childhood that he and many others of his generation remembered and in doing so, creates touching and amusing portraits of childhood that are distinctly contemporary in the Chinese art scene.
