Nothing Decays: Selected Non-Figurative Works from Wang Yazhong

We are pleased to announce the coming exhibition “Nothing Decays: Selected Non-Figurative Works from Wang Yazhong” at Tsubakiyama Gallery. The exhibition is composed of oil painting works and ink-wash painting works, illustrating Wang’s latest concept of creation.

Wang’s non-figurative oil painting largely embraces vibrant color and geometric elements; the creating process explores concepts of “deconstruction” and “reconstruction”. “Deconstruction” is where Wang abstracts his decades of life journey and philosophies into symbolic elements of what matters. “Reconstruction” is where Wang captures spontaneity and randomness at the moment of creation. Above characteristics give Wang’s works a unique sense of presence.

Wang’s ink-wash painting inherits his favorites in transience. The works are rooted in an oriental aesthetic pursuit of ethereal tranquility, which ties to one’s inner senses of being and becoming. In his age of late fifties, Wang went back to where he began as an artist: with imagination of everlasting oriental forests and streams, he connects the past to the present.

In the exhibition, we jointly present Wang’s oil painting and ink-wash painting to explore his various artistic profiles as well as to cruise distinctive logic and images between Western and Eastern art spirit.

About the Artist

Artist Wang Yazhong, born in 1962 in the city of Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China; graduated from Tianjin Academy of Fine Art with degree of Oil Painting. During the stay in U.S. in 1990s, Wang was awarded the Andrea Frank Foundation grants.

椿山艺术空间近期将在展览空间展出“消弭:王亚中非具象作品展”;展览将包括王亚中近年来创作的油画作品与水墨作品。

王亚中的非具象油画作品采用颜色与几何元素为主体,艺术创作过程不仅是解构与重构的探索,也是生命沉淀的不自觉体现。解构,来源于生命历程中数十年来累积的化繁为简,凝结成为具有象征意义的基本组成元素。重构,则充分体现了创作过程中情感与意识的自发性与随机性,每一幅作品即是当下感官情境独特的艺术表达;创作过程与生命体验浑然一体,宛若周而复始的乐章。

王亚中的水墨作品则通过中国艺术精神中对空濛、辽远的追求,进一步体现了对生命本质与无常的思考。历经人生旅程的艺术家在创作中回到了内心深处,画境犹如不朽的林泉,连接起古今时空的喟叹。

本次展览中,我们将王亚中的油画作品与水墨作品一并展出,一方面在于展现艺术家不拘一格的创作侧面,一方面亦在于探索东西方艺术理念中迥然不同的逻辑与意趣。

王亚中,1962年出生于山西省太原市,1984年毕业于天津美术学院油画专业;1998年赴美国进行油画创作,作品具有非具象表现主义风格。王亚中是1985年"太原现代艺术展"与1993年大型艺术展"乡村计划1993"的发起人之一,对当地当代艺术的发展产生过重要影响。
