Dogs in Art

This winter the WAH Center (Williamsburg Art & Historical Center) presented an exhibition of sculpture created by Taiwanese artist Poren Huang.  “The Dog’s Notes” (2005), a series of gold, silver and black cast metal work, celebrates the uniqueness of the canine as a human companion and as a reflection of human behavior…

from THE WAH

“Huang’s goal is to use the dog as a creative theme to convey positive traits such as self-confidence, courage, loyalty or innocence, and to provoke emotions and deeper thoughts. His work has been exhibited throughout Asia, including Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing. The work displays a deep affinity with our furry friends; Huang’s large sculptural dog forms bring an imaginative and illustrative vision of animated dogs that seem to have jumped right off the page of a graphic novel or anime series into our three dimensional reality…”
