Daniel Lai, “Kenjio” Book Sculptures

 

Malaysia-born, Tennessee-based artist Daniel Lai, aka Kenjio, uses a visually captivating paper folding technique for his inspired book sculptures. Each book blossoms outward in waves of paper folded unto themselves, accompanied by a clay figurine of a man deep in thought. The sculptor’s series of Thinker sculptures, echoing Rodin’s The Thinker, exhibit an astute attention to detail and skill in multi-mediums, including paper and clay.

The beautiful imagery created by Kenjio’s folding method mimics that of a fully-bloomed flower or perhaps a cog in a timepiece. The literary sculptures reinterpret the appeal of knowledge and reflect the limitations of time to absorb said knowledge. Kenjio has constructed a realm of his own where the thinking man reigns atop his literary throne. Via My Modern Met.
