No.2 Pole and Shadow No.2
In exhibition until May 9th, 2010 at Gallery J. Chen on DunHua S. Rd in Taipei is a series of work from Chinese artist Wang Fenghua. From the gallery’s introduction:
Over the past few years, Wang Feng Hua has had the habit of allocating all the images he has collected from the real world into two different parts of his memories: one is his everyday memory, which is the reality of his life, and the other is the inner reality he has cultivated in his heart.
The psychological reality and the reality of the real world, naturally have absolute differences. In this reality, even the air is completely still. The strange thing is, although even air is still, the reality found in Wang Feng Hua’s heart can grow, change, evolve, is full of emotion, and even the lightest breathe is kept on his canvas, lingering and unwilling to disperse.
As a part of the group of China’s new generation of artists, each person faces similar issues: how to create a new foundation on the basis of the past, and deduce individualistic semantics from old topics. When enjoying the new works of Wang Feng Hua, it ensures me that the art of Wang Feng Hua is at the same pace with the environment he grew up in. The energy he absorbed in Xian is undeniably tied tightly together in his creative thoughts and cannot be separated.
Wang Fenghua was born in 1971 and graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Xian Academy of Fine Arts. He is now working as a professor in Xian Academy of Fine Arts. Gallery J. Chen is a newly established gallery in Taipei City dedicated to the promotion of emerging Asian Contemporary Art.
