Born in 1975, Korean sculptor, Choi Xoo Ang has created a sight to marvel. The Dreamer Red, 2007, is an inference of a young female lost in reverie as the result of the yearning of an extraordinary life, motivated by the world of heavy consumption. At close observation, the expression of the character displays undeniable verisimilitude. The young artist drew inspiration from the fact that albeit diminutive the way a person is in a world of billions, she dreams big and craves for transcendence beyond average.
