Sculptor Tung Ming-Chin carves this natural element into figurative art shapes that seem like they are crying for help, just like in the wood sculpture bellow! This wood carving art seems to be pressing against the surface of the piece, almost like the humans and objects are trying to get out.
In the “Inner Turmoil” wooden statue, a face and hands are trapped inside of the wood sculpture and the chunk of wood seems to be smooth and stretched due to the figurative elements. It seems like its made of fabric! In “Breath”, the rounded spine and feet of a crouched figure expand outside the confines of a stiff white box.
The contemporary artist takes its natural, diverse, infinite, and inclusive elements to interpret a series of wood sculpture works, which develop with the integration of a single or different material. He illustrates the subtle interactions and visual ideas of works and constructs the unique lexis of his sculpture.

His contemporary art, Metaphor is an interpretation of the inner space and an expression of imagination. It can not be easily classified as a state of mind with shapes, like feelings, the poetic, time, the conceptual, and the non-visual.
All through his wood sculpture! It is free imagination which releases consciousness and explores the world of sub-consciousness. It is a specific state concealing under a hidden space in his modern art. By covering the inner, certain details will be concealed and simplified. It can be appreciated from an abstract aesthetic point of view.
