Han Xi’s solo exhibition “Guān Yǐng” showcases a five-year evolution of his glass sculptures. His works graciously confront questions of religion, living spaces and human existence. Through the utilization of recognizable imagery such as staircases, mirrors, architectural structures, and the human figure Han Xi’s colorful and large-scale sculptures tell stories of the human experience.
Han Xi is one of the first glass artists in the Chinese contemporary glass studio movement. He studied glass overseas at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, Germany. He is currently teaching at the Chinese Academy of Art in Hangzhou.
