Ju Ming (b. 1938, Miaoli County, Taiwan)

Though constructed out of bronze, the two anthropomorphic forms that comprise this sculpture look like stone. Together, they evoke the movements of the Chinese martial art Tai Chi. Ju Ming’s own Tai Chi practice influences his sculptural work: “the form of Tai Chi has something to do with the sculptural form that results, but the most important issue is the character of Tai Chi, which involves both activity and quietude…. both Tai Chi and my sculpture are about releasing inner forces.”
