Nativist Series Taichi Series Living World Series
TITLE Living World Series To further his studies, he went to New York in 1981. He developed another sculpture series, Living World Series, in that distant city. His Living World Series - Painted Wood sculptures were put on display to the public in New York for the first time. He had the exhibition in Max Hutchinson Gallery. The show caused considerable excitement especially when two pieces were sold; which was extremely uncommon for a new artist in New York.


Working on Living World Series led him to experiment on a variety of materials. Ju Ming tried to use sponges and ropes as a mold and the final product was surprisingly great! Therefore, he used this method to make many sportsmen sculptures.


From the mid 80s, Ju Ming has been working on collages, pottery, stone sculptures and the recent stainless steel series. All of them have been focused on humans. All of his works after his Taichi Series were classified as Living World Series because all of them were regarding humans.


Ian Findlay said of Living World Series "Ju Ming reached new levels in his artistic awareness and maturity. Here he has reconciled the traditional woodcarver's craft with a modern abstraction that has resulted in some of his most exciting work…….They force us to question our own human condition, to ask ourselves who we are, where we have come from and where we might well be going."
