Life-Sized Female Sculptures Inspired by the Graceful Beauty of Renaissance Art

Chinese artist Luo Li Rong produces realistic sculptures that convey the beauty and grace of the human figure. Working primarily in bronze, her life-size creations feature women in motion. They strike elegant poses that elongate their bodies with a seemingly windswept appearance; their hair and clothing look as though they’re being moved by a gentle breeze. This creates a compelling dichotomy; while there is an impressive dedication to realism—Rong is careful to detail each delicate fold of the skin—there’s also a fantastical element to her work, as her characters reside on clouds and hold raindrops in their hands.

Rong has pursued sculpting since an early age. She studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, then under the tutelage of sculptor Wang Du, and later she “immersed herself” in figurative sculpture techniques used by European artists in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Their sense of femininity plays a defining role in Rong’s contemporary works, and the stylistic guidelines help carry on the tradition of realistic sculptures in art.

Inspired by Renaissance and Baroque sculpting techniques, artist Luo Li Rong creates graceful figurative sculptures.
