Aesthetically, "Torso" refers to the crystalline remains of parts of the body naturally removed in the course of historical and physical time. They are originally symbolic sculptures of specially selected figures such as heroes or gods from ancient times.
If you look at the modern meaning of "torso" from a philosophical perspective, everything about human beings is removed except for the "existence” of human body mass. In other words, torso represents the essence of human beings.
My work borrows this symbolic image of "Torso" to express various aspects of human nature by combining the pictorial elements of abstraction with various objects.
