“Initially created in the hopes of developing a high-end surfboard that would serve as a visual art piece, Wang created five marble surfboards suspended on a cage wall in an installation called 22 Summer.” thisisglamorous

“Presented alongside a stunning series of photos and a short film demonstrating the natural contrast between the organic formation of marble with other earthly patterns, the surfboards are a work of art, mirroring the foaming white of breaking waves, jagged rocks of coastal cliffs and the subtle disintegration of where the water meets the sand. Beautiful.” Anita
