Foon Sham: Crafting Dialogs
by Aneta Georgievska-Shine
One of the hallmarks of Foon Sham’s sculptural language is his ability to cultivate a fine line between the dictates of his materials and methods and the specific context of his work. Another, which has shaped his career both as a practicing artist and as a teacher, is his dual perspective on the importance of history in his work: fully informed by tradition, he is, nonetheless, remarkably unburdened by its ballast.
