Wang Yigang

Wang Yigangs abstract paintings caught the attention of the Chinese art community in the 1990s. The paintings displayed here, from the Qianjiang Series, use traditional Chinese landscape techniques and abstract depictions of natural scenery to create a unique aesthetic atmosphere and express the unrestrained modern temperament. Wang uses Western painting vocabulary and color sensation to reveal his innermost feelings and make viewers reflect on the intellectual and cultural currents of the Chinese tradition, in search of a dual abstraction that emerges from under many layers of visual noise. In these shifting abstractions, he leaves faint traces of painstakingly arranged blank space and overlapping written characters. But it is just these traces that highlight Wangs intellectually and visually unique style and resonate with the potentials created by the appropriation and reimagining of digital vocabulary,.
