About

Sing By The Branches 唱枝头 Garden doors and windows appear in almost all Wang’s Suzhou garden paintings, but what are presented in the doors and windows are often unreal images from either Chinese ancient paintings or modern photographs. As a matter of fact, the doors and windows serve not only as paintings within paintings enriching the artworks, but also as objects which both connect and separate the real and the virtual. Although the garden walls, doors and windows are depicted and even on walls there cast shadows of garden windows with carved patterns, we are still not sure about what are depicted in the paintings, are the scenes indoor or outdoor? What Wang Yusang presents in his artworks is a pure art space beyond nature, and the Suzhou gardens only serve as an introduction for him to create the conceptual space or paintings. He has created pictures of the mind with his wisdom. In fact, the series of Suzhou garden paintings by Wang Yusang is subjective creation under the guise of objective depiction. More precisely, these artworks are to a large extent created from duplicating, diverting and restructuring of ready-made images. This way of art creation is known as the method of Conceptualism, but it is in nature substantially different from the conceptual art initiated by Marcel Duchamp (1887- 1968), or even completely the opposite. As such, this way of art creation is labeled as Post-Conceptualism. Wang Yusang uses oil painting materials and language in creating his artworks. Though such western painting techniques as focus perspective, light and shade, texture are applied in creating these paintings, the artworks are full of strong Chinese traditional art flavor. Without a doubt, Wang Yusang not only has a strong fascination with the Chinese traditional art, but also does he hold a position of identification with the concepts of the world contemporary art. In a moderate rebellious manner, Wang Yusang has created an art style that is both classical and novel, and his exploration is beneficial for the development and innovation of Chinese art. Painting is ready to hang. Signed by the artist on bottom left corner and back of painting.
