Miniature Sculptures Carved into Stones and the Backs of Animals by Song Kang

Portland-based artist and illustrator Song Kang produces textural work, whether that’s in her drawn explorations or sculptures produced from found and natural materials. Her little works are dream-like environments and houses, many created on backs of animals like oxen and camels.


For her Carved in Stone series, Kang imposes architectural designs onto the surfaces of found rocks.

“The structures follow the curvature of the rocks, skewing the perspective and creating surreal environments,” Kang states. “By becoming part of the surface rather than projecting outwards, the architecture becomes almost textural, a relief sculpture.”
