Peihang Huang

Peihang Huang is a wonderfully talented artist hailing from Taipei, Taiwan. Huang creates oil on canvas paintings highlighting the grotesquely beautiful and delicate nature of the human flesh through a combination unique color palettes and brush strokes. One of the most intriguing series in Huang’s portfolio is “Fleshy Fairytale” where in which she transforms the smooth plastic exteriors of Barbies and plush stuffed animals into bubbling pots of flesh.

Cai Guo-Qiang

The installation consists of a pack of 99 life-sized wolves barreling in a continuous stream towards—and into—a constructed glass wall. The wolves were produced in Quanzhou, China, from January to June of 2006. The commissioned local workshop in Cai’s hometown specializes in manufacturing remarkable, life-sized replicas of animals. First, small clay models were created as movement studies, out of which Cai subsequently developed Head On’s artist editions of cast resin wolves. However, the realistic and lifelike 99 wolves that grew out of these models and drawings possess no literal remnants of wolves: they are fabricated from painted sheepskins and stuffed with hay and metal wires, with plastic lending contour to their faces and marbles for eyes.
