Fang’s works are always minimal which highlight the beauty of shape and form. They remain modest and yet elegant. Audience will find them very light in weight as he applies “bodiless lacquer” technique in his creations. . . The technique is done by a rough core first modelled traditionally in clay or wood and then layers of hemp cloth soaked in lacquer applied over the surface. Each layer is being left to dry before the next layer is to be added. The core will then be removed, forming a lightweight hollow body made of lacquer and hemp cloth.
