Calvin Ma’s sculptures are imbued with a sense of childlike exploration and storytelling. His newest body of work beautifully depicts a recognizable figure we see throughout his sculptures, this time as birds in a variety of postures, each with a hybrid human-bird face. His characteristically stunning highly-detailed work here showcases his skill through the bright feathers and rich surface details of each form. Some pieces appear to hover or balance, others pause in stillness for a moment. Ma masterfully imparts character and personality into his artworks.
