My Favorite Works at the Guangdong Museum of Art

Some stuff I liked at the 广州美术馆:

I like how the snow in this is three-dimensional:

"Sing drunkenly while charging into the snow, and you can accomplish many goals"

"Sing drunkenly while charging into the snow, and you can accomplish many goals"
Wu Jinhua, Porcelain, 2008

酣歌冲雪众志成
吴锦华

That's my own attempt at an English translation of the title. A less literal translation would be:
"Forge ahead bravely toward challenges, and you can accomplish anything"

You can see the full work here.

Next are two self-shadow-portraits I took in a room that was part of an exhibition called "Environment Chromatic-Interference":

"Environment under the Intervention of Color (Color Interference)"

"Environment under the Intervention of Color (Color Interference)"
Carlos Cruz-Díez, 2010

Next are two statues in the sculpture garden made 26 years apart:

"Daughter of the Sea"  "We won't be Distressed any more in the New Century"

Left: "Daughter of the Sea"
Tang Daxi, Bronze, 1974

海的女儿
唐大禧

Right: "We won't be Distressed any more in the New Century"
Huang Yongyu, Bronze, 2000

新世纪不要忧伤
黄永玉

Note that the woman on the left is carrying an assault rifle! In Communist China, women don't just rivet! :)

The one on the right reminds me of the art style from Aeon Flux.

This is such a sad-looking Einstein:

"Einstein"

"Einstein"
Pan He, Bronze, 1985

爱因斯坦
潘鹤

And finally, this is not from the museum at all, but how can you not love my cousin's daughter's adorable plush pig? :D
