Installation view and detail of "Clowns", 2011

Cheryl Ip is a sculptor who is interested in working with wood and clay. The scale of her work varies greatly. Her current work style is tiny, as she believes that small things have a natural tendency to be treasured and to demand one’s attention. The style of her work is mostly figurative, solitary, and humorous. Cheryl pays great attention to craftsmanship and prefer low-tech rather than high tech. The process of creating something small allows for many unexpected possibilities. Moreover, it allows her to pay attention to her intuition.

Ip values the emotional component of her work. Her miniature sculptures attempt to depict the intensity of a single moment. Each figure carries an unique temperament, without any languages and motions numerous messages has already been delivered. Here, feelings are the most true and reveal what matters most.
