Ah Xian

Ah Xian is a Chinese-Australian contemporary artist interested in the human body and how contemporary craft can make it meaningful. Ah Xian uses many different techniques and materials, based on ancient Chinese crafts skills, including porcelain, cloisonne, lacquer, jade, ox-bone inlay and bronze as well as concrete. His most recent work is a new body of bronze casts. Craft Australia asked Ah Xian about sustainability both in his contemporary art practice and for traditional Chinese craftsmanship as well as about the themes of urban displacement and cultural remembrance in his works.
