Painter and sculptor Yan Wei aka Kokomoo lives and works in Bejing. Her acrylic pieces combine a background of dense, dark foliage with animal creatures, most of them glass-like deer that contain human beings. Sometimes these people seem trapped within the animal, acting out their frustrations and urges through them, but others appear peaceful, perhaps even seeing through animal eyes. There’s an interesting contrast between the realistic, detailed human faces and the almost toy-like, round shapes of the deer’s heads.
