Ah Xian: This is Chinese?

Ah Xian is a China-born Australian-based artist I greatly admire, and probably the only (semi-?)Chinese artist I have a real affinity for. Probably to do with the inherent identity themes that run through the course of his work. I find it interesting he doesn't physically make the work but leaves it to ceramic specialists in China - opening up a plethora of discussion about artistic ownership/ideas. A good write-up on him and more views of his work can be found on the Asia Society site.
