Biography: Xiang Yang, Artist (1961)

Women hold up half the sky.

Mao Zedong

 

Xiang Yang was born in Qingdao, Shandong China in 1961, the year that marked the end of the terrible Great Chinese Famine.

Much had changed in China by the time the then 14-year-old Xiang began studying art with Zhao Zhiping’s teacher.

She proved to be a quick study. Perhaps too quick, in fact.

It soon became clear that the young woman was on the verge of creating a unique artistic style that would…

Celebrating the Human Form

From cave drawings to graffiti found on the streets of London, artists have never tired of exploring the human form.

Whether realized in the portraits of kings or queens or the early wisps of sexual innuendo, the variations of an otherwise seemingly common theme are indeed endless.

It is in the realm of overt and beautiful sexuality that we find the work of Xiang Yang.

Here is an artist who is unafraid to celebrate the beauty that not only…

memories pt 1

One of my first memories was trying to acquire free will, (or increase it for me and all people) because I was paranoid we were all cause and effect. I would do random things and change my mind right in the middle, or do things I "wouldn't choose".. I thought I could dislodge the cause and effect train and everyone would be free. I was about 4 and I remember linking an experience to this, when I would fall to the ground with the feeling of strings skreetching in my ears, it hurt a lot and…

Hans Andre’s comments about his paintings

" The painting, The Charm, made in 2015, originated in the bourgeois highly “discreet” charm and these people’s dominance and self-satisfaction but also lack of self-awareness.

The idea came after participating in a snobbish event, it was actually a funeral, with,

as always, the pompous and exaggerated speeches.

The emerging binary digits can either symbolize the passing of time, or present time, or modern digital information, or just the flow….. "

The importance of painting

New York Arts Magazine, NY Arts, recently published a post from Hans Andre where he talks about his paintings.

"I do not really like to talk about my painting.

However, just to paint because it is beautiful or aesthetically, I do not find it meaningful.

I’m always looking for different layers in my paintings, ie. different ways for the viewer to see them on.

Ideally is if the viewer over time can see the other layers and  ................."…

Hot Summer with Grey days and Red Sun

 When my father died one year ago-I began a series of small works of which this is one.

As to the actual execution: I tend to go back and forth between Art Brut modes which I utilized in the eighties ( still in my heart! ); then to mix-in with my standard pen and ink.

I have the truest love of color / design elements and often add collaged efforts.

I LOVE my little studio. Just to work and to meditate while in the groove is such a blessing for me..

[condensed] Artist Statement

I am fascinated by how we define and occupy physical spaces and especially by our attempts to connect internally with those external environments. I find it is ultimately a disconnect that defines this relationship. A disconnect between our minds and physical selves; ourselves and others; our memories--both real and imagined; and our animal and human nature. We have a strong desire--even need-- for connection, but this potential connection is hindered, not only by an inability to…
