Wu Ching Ju works mostly from her studio located in the mountains near where she grew up in the Huatung Valley. In this picturesque environment in the midst of nature, she continues to create powerful yet intrinsically delicate works, merging influences from both Chinese and Western cultures.

Wu Ching Ju

Wu Ching Ju's sculptures sensitively abstract Western figurative sculpture from its traditional form, while reaching new levels of expression. 'Emotions play an important part in my work', she says. 'Serenity, modesty, sadness, tranquillity and joy feature prominently.' While her subjects clearly reflect her passion for Chinese history, legend and religion, her process, she explains, closely engages with it too. 

At 15 metres one of the tallest sculptures in the whole of China, Wu Ching Ju's Pro Terra et Natura is an expressive figure group that represents the gentle spirits of Mother Earth and of Nature. It captures serenity, hope and harmony that draw on the artist’s lifetime love of nature, conveying purity, innocence and vulnerability.
'She combines the rigidness and coldness of bronze with the gentleness and beauty of human nature in a perfect way.'
Hua Liming, Former Chinese Ambassador
